Corona Virus Response

As we’re in a period of rapidly evolving conditions, I’ll add updates here when there’s news that affects bike lesson protocols.

UPDATE Oct 27, 2021
I’m looking forward to seeing you all in Spring 2022.
I’m hoping we can enjoy a post-pandemic experience, but will stay informed and follow official guidance.
See you in the spring!

Effective immediately – Assignment of dates for New Students is on PAUSE.

• Delta variant, breakthrough infections, and waning vaccine protection have destroyed the feeling that the Pandemic is over.
• Virtuous Bicycle is booked solid through the end of September, while Covid rates are rising each day. it seems ill-advised to make new lesson commitments so far in advance.
• Booster shots, if they come, will likely not be available until October.

For all those reasons, I am putting acceptance of New Students on pause.

You are still encouraged to review lesson info on the website, and submit the New Student Questionnaire. You will be the first to be contacted when the time is right.

We were having a wonderful post-pandemic season, with so many joyful and successful students. It was fantastic to be out in the fresh air every day, helping students achieve their bike riding dreams. I’m sure we’ll get there again, and when we do, I look forward to being your bike instructor.

Effective immediately – VB will only accept students who are fully vaccinated. You will be asked for an image of your CDC Vaccine card or your NY State Excelsior Pass. (Thanks Delta Variant)
