Covid-19 Safety Measures
While we hope things are greatly improved in 2021, we understand we will all still need to do our utmost to protect ourselves and keep those around us safe. To that end, we believe our camps will provide a safe opportunity to get back to doing what we love most, exploring the world on two wheels and pushing our boundaries!
Most of our time at camp will be spent in the great outdoors riding our bikes. When in close proximity to other riders we ask that you please wear a buff or other face covering. Our indoor venues will have the ability to maintain an appropriate social distance. We will also have ample hand sanitizer throughout the weekend.
As always, we will continually be monitoring the situation with local health officials and civic leaders. We will keep athletes updated as we receive new information about the local situation.
