FW: Sign on to 🚲 Keep Bike Shops Open!

Just in case you have not received this.

 

First, and most importantly, I hope you and your loved ones are well. The next couple of weeks are going to be hard, but I take heart in knowing that the physical distancing we’re practicing now is slowing the spread of the virus. We will get through this together, if not physically close together. 

Your CalBike team is dispersed currently, but still hard at work changing state policies to advance our mission of more bike-friendly communities. Right now, we are working hard to get the state to clarify its stay-at-home order to declare that bike shops are essential, and may remain open.

 

 

We salute those essential workers who have to travel -- health care workers, delivery staff, maintenance people, and everyone else who is keeping society going -- and we want them to be able to bicycle for their essential trips

Biking at a safe distance from others is also one of the outdoor activities allowed while we try to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Now more than ever, a bicycle ride is important for our physical and mental health. 

If biking is essential, bike shops are, too. 

That’s why we are sending a letter to the California State Public Health Officer, Dr. Sonia Angell, asking her to affirm that bike repair shops are essential services. 

We need your support to deliver a strong message to Sacramento that bikes are vital in this time of social distancing. Please add your name to the letter to show your support.

Thank you for all you do to advocate for better biking in California. And thank you for supporting the bike repair shops that keep us rolling, even in the midst of a crisis.

 

 

Dave Snyder
Executive Director
California Bicycle Coalition

 

P.S. The more names we have on this letter, the more impact we have with state regulators. Your voice does make a difference. Please sign the letter today.

Hi V, 
They are stressed. Meg was in tears last night when we spoke. She had a man pass the day before then worked a stressful 12hours and a 50min meeting with nursing staff, management and CEO. They outlined their plan for a crisis. I guess it got pretty emotional saying it may go as far as choosing patio s for the ventilators, multiple vent patients per nurse (usually 1 on 1 in normal circumstances) and the lack of supplies. They are planning for the worst. She was better today. Got some sleep, we brought her some Tp, went on a hike and brought Milo back with us.

Insurance coverage during a pandemic

Mike Moore
 

A well known cycling writer posted a tweet saying that, paraphrasing, if you were injured riding your bike during a pandemic, your insurance would not cover the cost of your injuries.  As you might imagine, this is pretty scary.

I checked with my insurer and they said that pandemics have no impact on my coverage.  That is to say, if I were injured, the regular policy terms would apply.  Ditto if injured riding whilst the stay-at-home order is in effect.   But that is my insurer and my policy. 

I would recommend checking in with your insurer just to be sure.  I would also do it via the chat function on their website.  That way you get the opinion in writing just in case they try and pull a fast one later.

I hope that all of us stay safe and healthy and upright!   Not that there is ever a good time to crash, but this is a particularly bad time.

Thursday is Farmers Market at the Kaiser offices just off Paseo Padre from 10 to 2pm.  Get your backpack and ride over and pickup some great produce and fruit.  If you have a bike with a rack, but no panniers, you can easily tied a plastic 4 or 5 gallon bucket to it.

Here's how:  Get a length of wire, and wrap one end to the rack securely.  Next, loosely position the bucket so a flange is in contact with the rack for support.  Make sure you position the back far enough back to clear the heal of your foot.  Dry fit the amount of wire needed to make a look around the bucket to the rack.  Shorten this amount a few inches to allow for built in slack and stretch.  And twist the wire onto the rack so it is small and secure.  Now push the bucket on.  Should fit very snugly and securely.  You may need to try it a couple of time.

I know this technique works bc I have used it myself several times when in a pinch.

Re: Ride Calendar Updates

Daniel Karpelevitch
 

I agree that while riding in itself is not problematic, riding in the sort of groups that clubs ride in does not follow the social distancing guidelines. Pre- and post-ride socializing, coffee stops, etc. are not compatible with the current situation we are in. Also, and I mean no disrespect, but a significant proportion of club members are in the high risk age range. With that, I agree with the decision to suspend club activities. For those wanting to ride alone, I would suggest utilizing the club's library of routes.

locked All FFBC Rides Canceled until Further Notice #RideCanceled

David Walker
 

All,

The Bay Area has COVID-19 hot spots that will continue to spread. The CDC has advised against gatherings in high-infection areas, and USA Cycling has advised against all group cycling. Many club members, including some of our most active ride leaders, have been instructed to self-isolate.

 

For the protection of club members and to aid in the efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19, especially those in high-risk categories, the FFBC board has decided to cancel all rides until further notice. We will resume club rides when the crisis has passed.

 

Keep yourself safe! Follow the CDC's guidance on how to protect yourself. (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/prevention.html)
