Dear members of TeamCBC
In light of the emerging COVID-19 pandemic, TeamCBC is joining other cycling clubs across the Triangle and across the country by SUSPENDING all group rides/events for the next several weeks (until early April). We do this in an effort to protect the safety of our riders, families, and all of those around us.
USA Cycling, of which we are a member, released the following statement this past weekend.
“Due to the latest data on COVID-19’s spread and the healthcare system’s ability to manage this crisis, USA Cycling is recommending cancellation of all sanctioned events immediately and calling on all race and event directors, clubs, coaches, athletes, and members to postpone or cancel all scheduled races and events immediately. This includes any gatherings such as group rides, in-person group meetings, etc. We are suspending permits on all events through April 5th.”
What does this mean for us? We know cycling is an important part of who WE are – for that reason we ask you to observe the precautions set out by CDC and medical experts. Over the next weeks, we encourage everyone to work together to address this ever-changing and very serious situation. Get out on a bike – just not in large groups. Get involved in your community as you can. And take care of yourselves and those around you.
As you know, this situation is still emerging and we will re-evaluate how we proceed with team events in early April. 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
