As the Covid landscape continually evolves, we will update our travel requirements accordingly. Here's what you need to know about participating in a Bicycle Adventures trip this year:
Starting with our January 2023 departures, vaccination and/or testing for Covid will be recommended but no longer required by Bicycle Adventures. Regional and/or local requirements will still apply.
As of June 1, 2021, guests are required to either provide proof of a negative Covid test or proof of vaccination before traveling with Bicycle Adventures.
- A negative Covid test will be required within 72 hours of departure for all non-fully vaccinated guests. Test results should be emailed to email@example.com at least 24 hours before departure or handed to your guide on the first day of your tour. If your test results are positive, you will not be allowed to join the tour.
- Proof of a completed Covid vaccination course can be used in lieu of a Covid test. A “completed Covid vaccination course” means that the guest has had 1 or 2 shots (depending on vaccine brand) and has completed the 2-week waiting period post final shot.
- To update us on your vaccine status, please email a copy of your vaccination card to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a current reservation, please be sure to let us know at least 15 days prior to your departure.
- Vaccines are strongly encouraged to travel with us.
- All Bicycle Adventures guides are fully vaccinated.
Despite the CDC’s January 29, 2021, order requiring masked on public transportation being lifted on April 18, 2022, we will continue to require masks at all times in the van. You can read about the current CDC domestic travel recommendations here.
Your safety is our primary focus. We are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation to help ensure the health and safety of our tour participants and leaders, staff, and the communities we visit. We will continue to follow guidelines from local health authorities in each destination, along with recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA).
- Face masks are required when riding in the van and required when specified by local policies.
- National Parks requirements:
- Masks are required on all forms of enclosed public transportation, including our vans.
- In areas the CDC identifies as High COVID-19 community levels, masks are required in all National Parks Service buildings and facilities regardless of vaccination status. This includes visitor centers and restrooms. Our guides will be familiar with individual park guidelines.
- Masks are not required while riding but we ask guests to keep one with them for rest stops, points of interest and visitor centers.
