My advice is to hold off on group rides for now.

I understand that people want to resume group rides, but the idea of "social distancing" on a group ride is foolish. Studies suggest you would need to maintain a 60 (not 6) foot gap between riders due to airflow and possible spread of respiratory droplets. Doing a group ride like that I suppose is possible but difficult to maintain based on riders of slightly different strengths.

That said, I know several of my club-mates are doing "unofficial" group rides without social distancing, I strongly disagree with that but it's a free country. Sorta.
