2021 Ride Calendar

2021 COVID 19 Riding Regulations

Here we go again. Given current Alberta health guidelines and ABA insurance requirements, the Alberta Randonneurs will be sponsoring Brevets for the 2021 season adhering to all of the ACP/Audax regulations with participants incorporating the following additional rules. We will update these rules as health guidelines change, please check back regularly for updates or sign-up for updates on the Club Website:

  1. Riders must inform the ride coordinator, using the online registration system on the club website, at least two working days before their intended start date, that they will be riding the event. This is to ensure that the rider’s name is submitted to the ABA for insurance purposes.
  2. We cannot offer rides greater than 400km as these typically require access to accommodations which have not been opened up yet.
  3. Riders can ride an event any day of the week within seven days on either side of the scheduled event date indicated in the club calendar.
  4. Riders must ride as per the ACP/Audax rules, you cannot utilize the help of other riders you encounter on route.
  5. Riders must adhere strictly to the formal event route, including start and end locations. 
  6. Riders must practice social distancing at all times during the event. 
  7. Riders must carry a face mask and use it when entering public establishments for any purpose, including the use of bathroom facilities and purchasing water or nutrition. 
  8. Riders must adhere to all government public health guidelines.
  9. Riders will not be required nor should they have their brevet card signed at designated controls, start and finish. In lieu of this, riders will adhere to the following guidelines as outlined on the Brevet Registration Form:
    1. Submit a photo or scanned image of a fully completed and signed Brevet Card which can be downloaded from the WEB site. The Brevet Card will indicate arrival times at controls with the riders signature confirming that they have legitimately arrived at the controls and finish at the indicated times. This is mandatory to receive credit for the Brevet.
    2. Provide proof of adhering to the designated Brevet course by one of the following methods:
      1.  Take a selfie of themselves with an identifiable control landmark. (It is important that your phone or camera time and date are accurately set to Mountain Standard Time in order for the ride coordinators to accurately verify your arrival time.
      2. Submit a RWGPS or Strava link. Make sure that the settings for these tracks are PUBLIC/available to everyone. Ride coordinators will not contact you if they can’t open the link and you won’t get credit for the ride. The above formats are the only two formats that will be accepted. Participants should be mindful that GPS units can fail and should consider using option one as a backup plan. If your unit fails and you cannot prove your route passage you will not get credit for the ride. 
  10. When purchasing water or nutrition, riders must use credit or debit cards, do not ask for or take a receipt. 
  11. When overtaking other riders during the event ensure that it is safe to do so and pass with the appropriate social distancing. 
  12. After the event: Using the Link that was emailed to you on registration, immediately update your finish time or DNS or DNF. Within 48 hours of completing the event, submit through the same registration link; 1) Brevet card (scanned or photograph) and 2)  Your proof of route adherence.
  13. Ride safe
