To stem the spread of COVID-19 in the Portland area, Oregon and Washington state are taking a phased approach to reopen. All Portland-area counties are currently at the highest risk levels and have restrictions on gatherings. Health officials have set a maximum of 6 people for all social gatherings, from no more than 2 households – indoor and outdoor. Participants should maintain social distance of six feet. Masks are required in outdoor public spaces when physical distancing of at least six feet is not possible.
We strongly encourage everyone on a ride to wear a mask. Group bike rides are dynamic events and it can be difficult to maintain six feet of distance at all times. At minimum, we recommend you keep a mask/face covering around your neck that you can easily pull up when near other people.
