The long anticipated return to NBW rides has begun! With the resumption of rides there will be some guidelines that we are asking members to follow:

Riders will sign an online waiver agreeing not to participate in any NBW ride if you are ill, symptomatic, or if you have had a recent positive Covid test. or had recent exposure to a person with possible contagious illness or if guidelines or rules require or suggest isolation or quarantine. If you cannot agree, do not ride with us as you endanger yourself and all other riders.
Drafting and pacelines are not allowed. We are following the USA Cycling's Group Ride Recommendations related to COVID
Per RI guidelines: If you're not fully vaccinated, wear a mask within three feet of others outdoors to protect yourself and your household from COVID-19. Your mask should fit snugly but comfortably over your nose, mouth, and chin without any gaps.
Be aware of coughing, spitting, nose blowing and sneezing while riding. If you are about to do any of those please make absolutely sure that no one is within the minimum distance or slipstream area.
At this time there will be no social tent and we are asking that riders do not congregate before or after the rides in large groups. Although there are no restrictions for outdoor gatherings, there is still a 3 foot distance requirement between individuals.

Any questions, feel free to email

Be safe, be well,
Michelle Cortes-Harkins
NBW President
