RE: Here Comes the Sun…

Dear Lizard Head Cycling Family,

As some of our guests have been inquiring, we are sending you our COVID operating plan and documents to get us all on the same page. Below you will find both our COVID operating plan and documents we will be asking everyone to sign.

COVID-19 Vaccination
All of our guide crew will be vaccinated this season. We are encouraging all guests who can to get vaccinated. If you have questions about “life after vaccination”, here’s a good rundown from the CDC. Please let us know what your vaccination status will be prior to the trip (on our COVID release form).

We want everyone to be safe. Prior to your trip with us, we ask that all guests not vaccinated, including those with children, to take special care to avoid high risk COVID situations 2 weeks prior to the trip. If you develop COVID symptoms prior to the trip, for the well being of all involved, please contact us and we’ll reschedule you at no penalty. We will not accept anyone on our trips displaying symptoms at the pre-trip meeting.

Shuttles While on Tour
Prior to our tours, guests are sent a COVID-19 pledge. There are masked zones while on tour during group  shuttles and as required within public buildings. While driving we keep the air fresh with windows and vents opened.

COVID-19 Protocols while on Lizard Head Cycling Guides Tours
Guides and guests shall act at all times as if they are carrying the virus and are doing their very best not to spread it to others. Although at times, they may seem burdensome, these protocols are designed to help us both feel and stay safe while on tour.

  1. Mask Zones: Mask wearing during any group shuttles and as required when within public buildings.
  2. Whenever possible, high risk areas both on tour and while traveling to tours.
  3. Eating outside whenever the option is possible at restaurants and preparing delicious meals in our outdoor kitchen.
  4. Providing hand washing stations and making other cleaning supplies readily available to clients at camp, on the road and while on the trail.
  5. If you are feeling ill, it is your responsibility to inform the guides and remove yourself from the trip.

During Our Tours
Lizard Head Cycling Guides has a history of backcountry mountain bike tours in which we carry an outdoor kitchen with stoves, chairs and tables on all our front-country road tours. As such, during the pandemic we are staying a self contained group by preparing delicious home cooked meals, eating outside and picnicking our way across the landscapes.

All of this is towards the goal of helping our guests feel safe and cared for while on tour with us. At this point in the pandemic, we are dealing with risk assessment and risk management. This is inherently what a guide service such as Lizard Head Cycling Guides does best. We continue to assess the current trends to operate safely in remote environments in which we travel.

NOTE: Please click here see our Cancellation & Refund policies regarding COVID-19.

Keep on Rolling
