We are in Phase 1 of Reopening in Deschutes County:

  • Some XC, Enduro and Club Team activities have resumed.
  • Youth and Summer program information is being revised and posted to the site as quickly as possible for our launch during the week of June 15.
  • Please review Cog Wild and Cascadia Junior Cycling’s COVID-19 guidelines before booking your reservation.

Our collective health and safety is Cog Wild’s number one priority.  To comply with our USFS permit and operate as a business in accordance with guidelines fro the Oregon Health Authority, we are required the following while Deschutes County is in Phase 1

  1. Contact tracing: Riders must sign in and out of every practice so we can track attendance, groups and timetables as required by the regulations for potential contact tracing. Please arrive early or on time and check in with your coach for sign-out at the end of every day.
  2. Signs of Sickness: In the past 10 days, if you have experienced any cold or flu like symptoms please do not attend practice. Contact us before your scheduled arrival time for a credit or a refund due to sickness.
  3. Face covering during transport: Drivers and passengers will be required to wear face coverings while in our vehicles when 6′ distance cannot be maintained. A face covering is mandatory in our vehicles right now; please bring your own. It must fully cover your mouth, nose, and keep your hands free. We have Blackstrap Civil Masks available to purchase onsite for $16. See examples below.
  4. Seating in our vehicles: in our vans we will allow two people per bench with the middle seat empty and we are only allowing passengers in the window seats of our mini bus. Face coverings must be on before you get in and must stay on until we unload. 
  5. Hand wash/ sanitizer: Hand wash stations or hand sanitizer will be available at our office and in the vehicles. Please wash your hands or use hand sanitizer before handing your bike to the driver and entering the van. Drivers will wear face coverings, wash their hands / use hand sanitizer / wear gloves while handling your bike and driving. 
  6. Be prepared:  Recreation is important for mind and body but we want you all to be safe and take care out there. Please bring proper clothing, ample water, food, trail-side repair tools, first aid kit, map, phone and any other medications or items you require for your safety. 
  7. Outdoor meeting area: All clients will check in at our outdoor reception area. A portable toilet will be available outside along with a hand wash station or hand sanitizer. Staff will sanitize high frequency touch surfaces at the outdoor reception area and bathroom after each group.
  8. Practice Begins: Coaches will begin with a briefing to discuss safety, ride plans, social distancing and all other updates needed for riders to have a safe and enjoyable ride.
  9. Practice Finishes: Coaches will lead a debriefing and all riders must be signed-out.
  10. On the Trail: we are limited to groups of 10 right now and must maintain space between individuals and between groups. Riders are expected to follow the rules of the trail, provide space within their groups and to other members of the public as described by their Coaches for the situation. Refresh your trail etiquette here.
