Re: Group rides - input needed
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I don't have anything to share from a medical perspective, but strictly on the basis of social perceptions I urge that any group rides be very small and very low key. We all know that bicyclists are picked on (unfairly) in the best of times - for slowing traffic, for taking up space, for flouting the law. If bicyclists are seen congregating and riding in groups in apparent contradiction of stay-at-home orders, etc, we're only going to reinforce the worst perceptions of us. My two cents.

I agree! Thanks Rob!
- Wheelmen have cancelled all rides until further notice. Ride calendar clear through April
- Zwift Meetup is a viable option. We had a good group with Tom C this past Sunday
I have no issue riding with a normal size BBC group providing we be cautionary:
- No snot rockets
- If you need to cough or sneeze, pull out of the paceline.
- If you think you may be compromised.....just don't show up

I’m looking to start a discussion on group rides.
How do you maintain proper social distancing when you are breathing the exhaust of the rider in front of you?
What is a safe distance?
Groups of 4 riders at a time?
What are the pro’s doing? Other clubs?
Organize time trials with a 1 minute spacing?
Cross winds vs. head or tail winds?
