Our Ask of you to Promote Safe and Educated Participation at All MBT Events
Please consult the CDC website “Symptoms of Coronavirus” on the day of your participation. The following link is updated by the CDC https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html
If you are sick or suspect that you may be ill, PLEASE STAY HOME.
FOR EACH EVENT LISTED BELOW: We will maintain a list of participants in any case that contact tracing be necessary. This list will not be made public but will aid participants should any participant later be diagnosed with COVID-19.
All plans are subject to change based on the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We will be respecting all CDC, National, State, and Local recommendations. Here are the basic facts all of our plans are built around:
Our number one priority will always be the safety of our volunteers and event participants.
All decisions will be made based on that, not what is convenient.
Regardless of current health challenges, our focus is always on the safety of everyone involved in MBT volunteer opportunities. All tools will be disinfected between uses, and we’ll make sure everyone is practicing physical distancing. Participants will be required to sign a waiver including a clause identifying event contingency plans.
As of June 1, 2020, our volunteer opportunities are cleared to resume operations as long as they function under best practices. Below is a breakdown of actions we’ll be making to the programs in light of that.
Risk management has always been an essential part of MBT event opportunities, even when we’re not faced with a global pandemic, the goal has always been to keep everyone as safe as possible.
For mountain bike shuttles: before loading your bike or setting foot in the van, participants will be required to sign a medical release waiver and a clause outlining COVID-19 contingency plans. Shuttle participants under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian sign. Participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
We will continue to follow whatever social distancing best practices are recommended by Idaho and Wyoming state and local officials. We will work to keep distance whenever possible. Family members or household companions are encouraged to participate and will not be required to keep a physical distance. We will be flexible to make additional arrangements for high-risk participants and families. If you are sick or suspect that you may be ill, PLEASE STAY HOME.
- Shuttles are first come, first serve.
- Participants will be required to load/unload their own bike on the Huckwagon (this can be safely done from the ground and does not require climbing onto the vehicle/trailer).
- Vans will transport no more than 7 people at a time. Two per bench seat, plus one front-seat passenger. Please be patient with us – we’ll shuttle you as quickly as possible.
- Van will be completely disinfected in between shuttle runs.
- Shuttle passengers are required to wear a mask when riding in the van.
- MBT will not provide water or food for shuttle passengers. You are responsible for coming prepared for your ride.
- No official post-shuttle festivities will take place. Participants are welcome to gather in the parking lot after the race but physical/social distancing must be taken into account.
MBT recommends that each participant carry an adequate first aid kit, complete with sterile gloves. MBT will not provide any medical assistance.
In order to promote a virus-free environment, each shuttle will have hand sanitizer available for anyone to use.
Bring your bike, all personal riding equipment, water, snacks and supplies for a ride. Questions: email us at [email protected]
