Different Spokes is coming back on Feb 28, 2021

Great News!  Different Spokes Bicycling is coming back!  As of today, Thursday, February 18, 2021, the available adult ICU bed count finally reached 15% of the total supply.  That means that the technical requirement of the Safer At Home Order has been met. And we may now legally begin hosting group bike rides again.  Yay!  So, our first Different Spokes club ride will be Arcadia to The Oldest MacDonalds on Sunday, February 28.  Please watch for details about the event coming to you soon.

February 8, 2021 update

On December 21, 2020 we posted an update.  At that time, there were 288 Available Adult ICU Beds, (or 12% of the total) in the entire LA County. Unfortunately, the number of available beds is now just 259.

The guidance from the California Regional Stay At Home Order is that group activities are prohibited until the number of available ICU beds reaches 15% of the total, or about 350.

On December 3, 2020, the California Department of Public Health issued a Regional Stay At Home Order that prohibits all gatherings with members from different households. The order remains in effect as long as the the available adult ICU bed capacity is less than 15 percent.

So, unfortunately, rides will continue to be suspended.

Please keep riding on your own. Stay in shape, but ride either by yourself or with a few friends.
