LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE 9TH ANNUAL GIANT LOOP RIDE IS ON — LET’S GO!
9th Annual Giant Loop Ride is September 18-20, 2020 in Crystal Crane Hot Springs, Oregon, USA…
Deadline is Friday for a cancellation/refund and to sign up without paying the extra $50 for late registration.
We’ll have to do things a little differently this year, and we do need everyone’s full support and cooperation following State of Oregon mandated precautions, such as maintaining social distancing guidelines in camping areas, and the newly updated soaking pond. Mask required indoors. No self-service beverages in reusable containers. Minor stuff. A trifling inconvenience at most…
REFUND DEADLINE IS NOW! Extended until FRIDAY, AUGUST 7 — REQUEST A REFUND HERE
We are happy to issue a refund on your deposit or payment, or you may leave it as a credit on your account to apply toward a purchase or future ride. But please do it now, because we have to give Francis at The Smokin’ Pit a headcount for his signature BBQ chicken and smoked prime rib dinners…
BUT THERE’S STILL TIME TO JOIN US — SIGN UP HERE
We have more than 150 people registered and we will continue to accept sign ups through this Friday. After that, an additional $50 Late Registration fee applies.
WE NEED YOUR FULL COOPERATION
For the health and safety of all, we follow these guidelines and we need 100% compliance and cooperation from all riders in order to make the Giant Loop Ride happen this year.
OSHA General Guidance for All Workers and Employers:
— Frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. When soap and running water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand rub with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands that are visibly soiled.
— Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
— Practice good respiratory etiquette, including covering coughs and sneezes.
— Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
— Stay home if sick.
— Recognize personal risk factors. According to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), certain people, including older adults and those with underlying conditions such as heart or lung disease or diabetes, are at higher risk for developing more serious complications from COVID-19.
And for the protection of eastern Oregon’s rural population, please respect these State of Oregon mandates:
— Masks, face shields and face coverings are currently required statewide for indoor public spaces (for example, grocery stores, pharmacies, public transit, personal services providers, restaurants, bars, retail stores, and more). In addition, face coverings are required in outdoor public spaces when physical distancing is not possible.
— Children age 5 and up are required to wear a face covering. People with a disability or medical condition may request accommodation from the business if they cannot wear one.
