Under the Ride Level details, the "Type: Road Bike" refers to the ride will be on paved roads (rather then off road trails). Although a Road Bike is suggested for Road Bike Type rides it is not required. Hybrid and mountain bikes can be used on these rides as well provided you are comfortable with the pace outline in the Posted Ride. This ride calendar is for club rides, club meetings, club event posts and shop rides only.

Virtual Bike Ride
———> NOTE: This is a NON-SBRA ride. <———
SBRA Members are welcome to participate but please note you will NOT receive ride mileage and Ride Leader and Sweep will NOT receive ride credits.


I will be holding a Virtual Bike Ride on Zwift.

For this virtual event anyone can join in the conversation using SBRA’s Discord voice channel: (link is external). If you use this link select “Accept Invite” next.

Note: SBRA’s Discord channel will be active 20-30 minutes prior to the ride start. This way you can test to make sure you are connected.

When you get to the Discord page, you will see a menu on the left labeled "VOICE CHANNELS."

Under this menu list click on "General" and you should see yourself listed there. Click on you, then connect to voice.

Note: Make sure to unmute your microphone. Go to the bottom left, next to your user name, the mic should not have a red slash through it. If it does, select the mic to unmute.

I will be using Zwift with a smart trainer. Zwift has a feature called Meetup for group rides.

Note: I need to follow you on Zwift before I can send you an invite. Search me on Zwift "Tom Gorman (SBRA)" or text me your Zwift ID at 631-960-1035

This can be done using the Zwift Companion app (not the regular Zwift app). You will need both installed.

Zwift Meetup Information:

Date: 11/30/20

Start time: 8:30 am 

Note: You can join the meetup ride 15 minutes prior to the start time. Be careful not to join more than 15 minutes before the start as sometimes the app will time out and disconnect you from the ride. Also do not delay joining either as you want to leave time for the "what ifs" as we all have found from time to time. There are no late starts for Meetup rides.

Duration: 1 Hr 15 min

Organizer: Tom Gorman, phone or text 631-960-1035

Where: Innsbruck

Course: InnsbruckRing

Distance: 20 miles

Elevation: 900 ft (approximately)

Pace: Zwift’s Keep Everyone Together feature, everyone stays together regardless of power output. You’ll be able to draft and move around in the group without fear of being dropped unless you stop pedaling.

Ride Leader: Will have the yellow beacon above the rider. 

Meetup Only View: For this meetup this will be turned off. You will see other Zwifters attending this meetup. Everyone else in the world will NOTE BE HIDDEN.

Meetup Riders: For those who are part of the Meetup ride. We will be highlighted in green in the list of all riders on the course.

Special Instructions:

 Hope to see you on this Virtual Ride !!!

SBRA Covid Guidelines
Suffolk Bicycle Riders Association (SBRA)
Group Ride Policy during COVID-19 Pandemic

• SBRA rides will be limited to CLUB MEMBERS ONLY.
Do not participate in any SBRA ride if you are feeling ill.
• Proper social distancing of at least 6 feet must be maintained at the start and at all times during the ride, including rest stops, red lights, stop signs, “mechanical” stops, etc.; where this is not possible, face coverings (masks, Buffs, neck gaiters, etc.) must be worn and “up”. You must have a face covering with you at the start. If you do not, the ride leader must not allow you to ride with the group. “No Mask, No Ride”
• The Ride Leader will sign in all riders. Each rider must provide their full name, required phone numbers and SBRA user ID number.
Note: by allowing the SBRA Rider Leader to write your name on the Ride Sign-in Sheet and joining the ride, you are agreeing to the standard Release and Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk and Indemnity Agreement (“Agreement”) required on all SBRA rides.
• No more than FIFTEEN people in a group ride (now back to normal SBRA guidelines). (UPDATED 9/1/20 and 3/26/21)
• If more than FIFTEEN members show up for a ride, it is recommended that the ride be split into two or more groups.
• If more than one group is riding the same route from the same start, they must start at spaced out times. Groups should not rejoin one another during the ride. If the second group gets too close to the first group, they must stop and wait for the first group to get further ahead. If the second group is not familiar with the route, they can stay close enough to the first group to allow them to follow but must keep as large a distance as possible. The first group should make sure they can see the second group behind them if the second group is not familiar with the route. If separated by a traffic light, the first group should slow up until they see the second group is once again following.
• No spitting, snot-rockets or expelling fluids from your nose or mouth. Keep any tissues, handkerchiefs, etc. securely tucked inside your pockets.
• All riders must bring a face covering. Face coverings may be worn “down” while riding, but must be pulled “up” when going through busy small town areas, when passing oncoming pedestrians and in other situations where there is a real or perceived risk of infection. Buffs, neck gaiters and similar items have worked out well for many cyclists since they can easily be pulled up or down.
• Face coverings must be worn whenever social distancing cannot be maintained and any place where the group stops for more than 2 minutes.
• It is recommended that all riders carry their own personal hand sanitizer.
• Ride distances should take into account the limited availability of rest rooms and food stops.
• The foregoing may not be waived by individual ride leaders. Additional restrictions may be added by individual ride leaders with the same force and effect as the foregoing.
• As always, ride leaders have the right to ask any rider to leave the ride when rules are not followed.

In Addition: Besides the standard Waiver, SBRA will require all participants to acknowledge and agree that:
• Bicycle riding is inherently dangerous and that riding in a group can increase the participant’s chances of contracting COVID-19.
• The Participant will take reasonable precautions to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and will conduct himself or herself in accordance with SBRA requirements as well as the recommendations of public health officials.
• Appearances count. In addition to actually riding safely, we want at all times to appear to the public that we are riding safely. That means strict adherence to social distancing, face-covering-wearing and other requirements, including numerical limitations.
The Participant has read and understands all of the above and will abide by all of the terms and conditions of the ride waiver and the supplemental guidelines for group riding.

This policy will be available to read at each ride:
