Cycling During COVID-19

It is important that we all do are part during these difficult times.   At this moment, 38 states have Shelter in Place orders;7 have partial Shelter in Place orders; and 5 have no Shelter in Place orders.   At the same time, as having the Shelter in Place orders we have been encouraged to get outside and recreate.  It is a bit confusing so here are some guidelines we encourage:

First and foremost: if you think you’ve been exposed, self-quarantine. Including being outdoors. Do not ride outside.

If you go outside please follow these guidelines as you shelter in place:

  • Ride Solo
  • Do not go for group rides with people who live outside of your household. Only ride with people you are already staying at home with and, when passing someone else on the road or trail, leave as much space as you can to ensure you are adhering to social distancing best practices.
  • If you are going for a bike ride, ride from your place of residence. Do not put your bike on your car or leave your community to ride.
  • Follow all recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC.gov )

For more information on cycling during COVID-19 we encourage you to check out Bicycle Colorado’s COVID-19 resource page.

Thank you for doing your part to bring the Covid-19 pandemic to an end.

COVID-19 Update

We are experiencing a difficult time in the world and, understandably, it is causing great levels of stress and anxiety for many.  The Denver Post Ride The Rockies has been assessing the current COVID-19 situation with our Medical Director and a team of local medical and civic authorities in addition to monitoring direction from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Our first and foremost priority is and always will be the safety and well-being of our constituents.  In consultation with this team, at this point it is our intention to move forward with the 2020 Ride The Rockies.  We anticipate having a definitive answer on May 1, 2020.
