NAROWERZE RISK MANAGEMENT DOCUMENTATION

Narowerze cycling pilgrimage to Polish Czestochowa in the United States will take the following safety precautions for the Bicycle Event taking place on July 15- 17, 2016:
The Event will travel slowly to accommodate all members of the group. The event will be broken up into groups of no more than 10-15 cyclists per group. The groups will stick only to bicycle legal routes. The groups shall not be larger than 10-15 people as the event is not asking for parade/street closure permits from all local municipalities along the route (the event will be passing through over 100 municipalities). Each group shall have a group leader. That Group leader should have the cell phone number of the other group leaders. The groups will then meet up at the scheduled churches and pray/sleep and then separate into groups of no more than 10-15 people the next day. The participants shall be reminded that this is not a race.
All members must wear a helmet at all times and have a spare inner tube.

There will be volunteers in cars traveling behind the groups (1- 5 cars). The volunteers will be available to pick up any event member who is tired or not feeling well to be driven to the next destination (church). The volunteers will have bicycle racks to take the member’s bicycle if necessary. The volunteers will have basic medical kits in their cars (bandages, ice packs, etc.).

If there is a medical emergency the group shall stop and call 911 and wait with the injured/ill person until medical personnel arrive and the emergency contact person on the waiver sheet is contacted.
The group will drive through inclement weather unless doing so is severely dangerous (ie thunderstorm) at which point that group shall stop and wait in a safe place (building/underpass) until the storm passes.
