COVID-19 EVENT GUIDELINES
*The event guidelines below are approved by St. Lucie County and USA Cycling. Please read these guidelines below.
The purpose of this plan is to develop, implement and enforce appropriate procedures, in accordance with Federal, State, and local regulations to safely operate events produced by Race Event Solutions, Inc. The principles and considerations in this document were compiled from recommendations made by USA Cycling who is governing body for the sport of cycling int the United States.
These procedures are designed for the return to cycling events once government officials remove “stay-at-home” orders, allow non-essential businesses to reopen, and say it is safe for citizens to move around their community. As a result, these procedures are based on the knowledge that some carriers of COVID-19 show no symptoms. With that in mind, it is important to encourage frequent and effective handwashing, advise staff and participants to wear masks/ face coverings, enact an effective sanitation program (using chemicals effective against the coronavirus) for high-touch surfaces, and establish programs and capacities that allow for appropriate levels of social distancing.
As community transmission rates decline these procedures may be adjusted and relaxed. It is also important to note that these procedures will change as best practices, government guidelines, and guidance from health, medical and industry professionals evolves.
Considerations for Events:
- Allows healthy people to enjoy the cycling events and encourages the use of masks/face coverings for participants and staff.
- Provide means to wash/sanitize hands frequently.
- Manage density of spectators and participants within the event to keep people 6 feet (2 meters) apart.
- Reduce touch areas where possible and sanitize high touch surfaces frequently.
- Protect staff with various approaches, including barriers, protective coverings, and distancing.
- Communicate with staff and participants effectively on how to prevent the spread of germs.
- Have a plan in the event a staff or participants fall ill on site.
The Event Considerations section will focus on the different disciplines and types of cycling
events, with suggestions for each. This document by no means covers all solutions or mitigations
The suggestions and practices mentioned in the following pages are not meant to be hard and
fast guidelines for every event. Nor are they all meant to be applied to every event. The sport of
cycling is made of many different disciplines, and events of many different sizes. These event
considerations are meant to be resources for use as needed by this wide variety of event types.
- Riders will be instructed not to hug, high five, touch each other at any point before,during or after their event.
- Finishing riders will be instructed to exit course away from the finish line.
- Staff will serve as a safety ambassador at the exit to ensure riders do not congregate.
- Plenty of garbage cans for riders to throw away their refuse, and clean as needed.
- Garbage bags will be securely tied or knotted prior to disposal.

Temperature checks are not recommended as a primary operating principle due to the inconsistent nature of readings, particularly in outdoor environments.

As a result, screening is not an effective way to keep individuals with the disease from coming to an event, however touchless thermometers will be available on request.
