GOOFS Ride

In this Section

Oh so nice to be able to ride on a weekday afternoon!

 

This ride is geared for Geriatrics and Others Of Flexible Schedule.

Like everything in life this year we have to change to enjoy life as much as possible while keeping ourselves, and our families safe and healthy.  Most of the GOOFS riders fall into the vulnerable sector (hence the G for geriatric in the acronym)  We ask for the club’s cooperation with the following changes:

  1. GOOFS rides will be reserved for the more mature riders in the club along with those that fall in the vulnerable sector or care for those that fall in that category.

  2. We ask that those attending GOOFS rides, to not attend other group rides.  This creates a bubble of riders that are always together, thereby by reducing risk of catching COVID-19 while cycling.

  3. All GOOFS riders must be N.E.C.C. members and have filled out the COVID 19 waiver.

  4. Social distancing rules will be enforced.  Carrying PPE in your kit is recommended, in case another cyclist needs assistance.

The route is the same each week so there is an opportunity to join in en-route. The ride is divided into two groups, as noted below.  The faster ride incorporates some hard effort sections but always regroups afterword.  There is a short stop to cool off and fuel.
