    During this time of economic impact and social uncertainty the threat that we may lose many of our local bike shops is very real. If you find that you can financially support your favorite shop, please do so. Many of the local stores offer gift cards to purchase. This is a great way to support them during this time and to help hold them over until they can resume business as usual. So, if you are going to spend the money anyway once this is over (and it will be over at some point) and choose to do so, please help them out. I have tried to put together a list of all locally owned bike shops and am providing their websites, contact pages and links to gift cards sales if I could find them. 


    The List:

    A Message from LBC concerning locally owned Bike Shops

    LBC RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS COVID-19

    UPDATE May 15, 2020:

    The suspension of all LBC Rides and Events has been extended through June 11th, 2020.  This date matches direction from the Kentucky State Governor's office for Phase 2 of the current reopening plan.  As always this date is constantly being reevaluated and will be updated again as needed.


    It is with regret that the Executive Committee of the Louisville Bicycle Club has made the decision to suspend all club supported rides and activities. This includes club meetings, regularly scheduled rides and any club supported adhoc rides.

    The safety and continued good health of LBC participants and volunteers, and the cycling community as a whole, is your clubs primary concern. We have been monitoring the situation closely and feel it would be irresponsible to continue to hold these group gatherings during this health emergency. We do ride in close proximity to one another and it is difficult if not impossible to maintain the distance recommended by public health officials.

    States of Emergency & Disaster have been declared at the national, state and local levels. Many, if not most, major sports organizations have suspended seasons and cancelled events in order to help prevent the spread of this disease.

    For many of us, our jobs have gone remote to reduce the risk of contact with possibly infected individuals. “Social Distancing” has not only become a new term for us, but is now a way of life, to stop or slow down the spread of this highly contagious disease.

    If you do continue to ride, please confine yourself to a bare minimum of friends, practice that Social Distancing along with the guidelines already posted and those published by public health officials.  As an alternative consider rides through Zwift. 

    We will be re-evaluating the situation on a weekly basis and will keep you informed.

    In the meantime, if you have specific concerns or questions, please email us at communications@louisvillebicycleclub.org

    REFERENCE

    What is Social Distancing? The CDC defines social distancing as "remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet) from others when possible."


    PRECAUTIONS

    In the meantime, here are just a few things you can do as a precaution to the spread of disease (any disease).  Where indicated, some items are recommended by the CDC and others are specific to us in the cycling world.

    • Stay at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover.  (WHO)
    • Bring a handkerchief or rag to carry on the ride.  Kleenex, tissues and such don't do so well when mixed with sweat.
    • Practice a no touch policy.   Avoid shaking hands, unnecessary hugs and the like.  We all love each other for sure, a little restraint.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth (WHO)
    • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue (CDC)
    • On the ride, no snot rockets or spitting, or... drop off the very back of the group to perform this act.
    • 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)
    • Clean frequently touched surfaces and objects (handlebars, water bottles, gloves,etc) using a regular household detergent and water prior to disinfection. (CDC)
