Talk of “Opening Up”
As various countries and also some provinces in Canada start to discuss the possibilities of “opening up”, I begin to imagine what our operations will look like over the coming months and keep a keen eye on the recommendations from various authorities.
In a recent update from Cycling Canada and Cycling BC on April 27th we were reminded that any cycling outdoors should only take place with family members. I must also remind my clients that my operations do not qualify as an essential business and as such I will continue to follow the guidelines set out by our government agencies.
We are all anticipating a shift in the rules, but until the day that non-essential businesses are allowed to operate, I will remain closed.
Once we have been given the go ahead, Next Level Riding should be able to operate on a contactless basis. For this, I will initiate an online waiver system and an online medical form, so that there will be no need to exchange paper and pens at a lesson. I will be operating at a reduced capacity and likely be working with only one or maybe two clients at a time. New strict distancing guidelines will be introduced to our operations and as per usual, the safety and health of participants will be paramount.
I will implement new first aid protocols should I need to administer first aid and will make all the new procedures available to you once we are allowed to open again.
My focus will initially be on scheduling private lessons for those who still have outstanding credit with me. I want to thank you for your continued support and patience through these times.
I look forward to a healthy summer and promise to provide outstanding service with the focus on client safety and fun.
Stay tuned for updates and use the contact page if you have any questions. Thank you. Alan.
