No Brainer Cancelled - Augusta alternative

Lunch Ride to Augusta, KY

This is billed as a tandem ride, but singles are welcome. Just remember that tandems love to fly downhills, so give them room.

There is one major climb at the beginning, but after that it is gentle rolling hills that are just perfect for tandems. The speed from the descent is just right for powering you up the next hill. In our opinion this is the best tandem road we have ever been on.

The ride is 55 miles. The pace will be casual with an average around 14-16 MPH(depending on group). We will regroup at the top of the climb and all turns.  Lunch in Augusta at Carota’s Pizza (outdoor seating available). After that it is only 18 miles back to California Market on Rt. 8.

Registration is recommended
Where indicated, some items are recommended by the CDC and others are specific to us in the cycling world.

1. Stay at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover. (WHO). Most science out there says you need to be within six feet of someone sick for ten minutes or longer to contract the flu or a virus from them.
2. IF you have a fever of 100.4 or higher STAY HOME!
3. IF you have labored breathing or a cough when you take a deep breath please stay home.
4. Break into groups of 10 or less, unless riding in Indiana.
5. Keep in mind that most public park rest rooms are still closed, although some places on the trail do have open port-o-lets.
6. Feel free to bring a mask for rest stops etc, if that helps you feel safe.
7. Encourage riders to register for the group ride online or RSVP via email.
8. Bring a handkerchief or rag to carry on the ride. Kleenex, tissues and such don't do so well when mixed with sweat.
9. Practice a no touch policy. Avoid shaking hands, unnecessary hugs and the like. We all love each other for sure, a little restraint.
10. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth (WHO)
11 .Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue (CDC)
12. On the ride, no snot rockets or spitting, or... drop off the very back of the group to perform this act.
13. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. (CDC)
14. Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects (handlebars, water bottles, gloves,etc) using a regular household detergent and water prior to disinfection. (CDC)
