Stay tuned for further information on all policies and procedures that will be in place at Kitsch Wines and throughout the course. In the meantime, please note that the following event details have been confirmed with health and safety in mind:

Current policies
*This list is not exhaustive. Full details communicated to riders ahead of the event.

Staggered start times
Beginning at 2pm, multiple start times will be staggered 15 mins apart in order to avoid large gatherings at the starting line.
Outdoor experience
Event check-in, the ride and the post-ride orchard picnic will all take place outdoors. Weather permitting, all our participating wineries are planning to host their tastings & activities outdoors, as well. In the event of inclement weather, some wineries may move their tastings & activities indoors.

If inclement weather requires certain tastings & activities to take place indoors, the winery will require proof of your first dose of the COVID-19 vaccination and the use of masks when not actively tasting wine (as per recent provincial health orders).

Max capacities at our post-ride picnic
The orchard picnic will have a maximum of 50 guests at a time, physically-distanced on the outdoor grounds of Kitsch Wines.

Individually-wrapped picnic boxes
The orchard picnic will feature individually-wrapped boxes for our guests to enjoy.
