Nov 12- The news we have all been waiting for since the required re-assessment of individual businesses implemented a week ago — Vancouver Coastal Health has approved our COVID-19 safety plan! This is confirmation that we are doing all the right things to help prevent the spread of the virus and stay safe while training in the studio.

Our protocols for in-person classes are still in place, and the bikes will now be spaced a minimum of 3 metres apart. Classes will have a maximum of 8-10 participants.

We are excited to welcome you back with this new government approval in place. Dr Bonnie Henry’s message to you now is to be mindful of the precautions that businesses are taking and careful that these are not forgotten in the post workout visits to socialize with friends at home. Distancing should be respected at all levels. Let’s work together to keep our studios open.

Instudio Protocols Include:

  • As in the past TaG staff will set up and thoroughly clean your bike. New disinfectant will be added to cleaning solution for “cockpit” on the bike.
  • All touch points on the Bikes will be sanitized before and after your ride.
  • Doors will open 15 min prior to the start of the class, no entry after the class starts
  • TaG assistant staff will wear a mask in the studio.
  • Riders and coaches must  wear a mask when entering and leaving the studio
  • Mask is not required during the workout while on the bike.
  • Riders temperature will be checked upon entry to the studio and asked Covid-19 screening questions * before allowed to enter the workout space

  • Please put shoes with cleats on once in the studio space.
  • Please bring your own towel, and fill your own water bottle before you arrive – 2 if you need it
  • Smaller class sizes will accommodate physical distancing of 3 meters between bikes in the riding space, with maximum of 10 bikes in the class in the North Van , 8-10 in Van, Squamish and Whistler
  • Benches and seating are spread apart and only 1 rider per bench is currently allowed. 
  • No fans will be directed at riders. The NVan location has a high level Dyson HEPA Air Purifier/Fan before, during and after class, windows will be open 
  • Riders must wash their hands or use hand sanitizer before they enter and leave the class space.
  • Touch points in the studio are sanitized after every class
