An event venue map will be available on the website and will be sent by e-mail to all participants before the event.

The event venue will take into account social distancing rules and regulations. A wide area is used so it’s easy at all times to keep a safe distance.

During the event

Saimaa Cycle Tourin departures happen in groups of 50 riders which will be waiting in allocated “waiting lanes” with plenty of space between the riders ( if needed we can make the groups smaller).

Departures will take place with four minute intervals.

In the waiting lanes and departure area safety masks are obliged. The safety masks can be removed one minute before the start.

In the departure lane a two meter safety distance is reserved around every rider. Individual departure spots will be marked in the departure lanes.

The number of riders at the departure area will be limited. A safe "waiting lane" with social distance is foreseen.

Depending on the participants departure time a check-in time to the "waiting Lane" will be communicated. Participants are not allowed to gather earlier in the area than the communicated check-in time.

Service points

The number of persons entering the service points will be limited according to the regional restrictions and regulations at the time of the event.

The service points have a larger service so social distancing can be respected.

Safety masks will be obliged at the service points and will be distributed upon entering the service point. Hand disinfectant will be available at all service points.

Finish area

All participants will receive safety masks at the finish line. Safety masks are obligatory for all persons over 12 years old.
