July 24-26, 2020 - Registration Open
After so many tour cancellations this season due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, your 2020 Touring Events season is now underway. We have been given a reprieve by the Quebec government and by the OCA. As a result, we are pleased to be able to offer our Eastern Townships Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu tour again this year. Although the Auberge is under new management, they are still able to offer us the same terms and conditions as past years with the exception of no longer being able to provide the inclusive breakfast.
The tour will be on the weekend of July 24-26 (Friday to Sunday). We can provide for 24 registrants and perhaps more if the demand requires more.
We will again return to the Auberge Harris in the quaint village of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, which provides a sauna, exercise room, billiard room, and a beautiful outdoor heated salt water pool. There is also a large locked room for the storage of our bikes. We are arranging for early check-in on Friday and late check-out on Sunday for those who want to get in a few extra rides. Check out the website below:
The accommodation options and rates are outlined below. We plan to arrange for a happy hour on Friday evening so that we can organize ourselves into our preferred cycling groups and routes. Dinners are not included but several good restaurants are within walking distance from the Auberge with recommendations provided by hotel management. There will be 6+ optional routes of varying distances (48-130 km) and terrain. We will NOT cross over the US border this year for obvious reasons.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions we will not be able to use the van this year.
In accordance with other mandatory rules set up by the OCA this year it will be necessary for participants in this tour to sign a COVID-19 waiver and have it on file with the OBC. Please click on this link to access the form: https://waiver.smartwaiver.com/w/5ed1003b165fe/web/
