Dear members of TeamCBC,
It has been nearly two months since we suspended our organized group rides. Although some communities are beginning to relax their “stay-at-home” orders, there is still a long way to go.
As an USA Cycling member organization we will continue to follow their guidelines regarding group rides and activities. They released the following statement a few weeks ago:
“With the continuing national emergency, USA Cycling will extend its suspension of all issued permits for sanctioned events – including USA Cycling races, rides, camps, and clinics – through May 31, 2020. USA Cycling is currently working with our stakeholders, event organizers, and medical experts to develop guidelines and best practices to assist in keeping participants , event staff, volunteers, and the communities where we hold our events as safe as possible once riding and racing resume. We continue to call on all event directors, clubs, coaches, athletes, and members to follow the guidelines and regulations issued by national, state, and local authorities on social distancing and prohibited activities. This includes forgoing gatherings such as group rides and any other group or team activities where people assemble.”
What does this mean for us? Continue to get out on a bike – just not in groups. Stay involved in your community as much as you can. And take care of yourselves and those around you.
As you know, this situation is ever changing and we will re-evaluate how we proceed with team events in early June. We will communicate any and all updates via FB, our email list, and on www.teamcbc.com. As always, please reach out to any member of the board with any questions or concerns.
Your Board of Directors
