An Important Update Regarding Covid-19
It is with a heavy heart (or deflated tire?) that we are announcing the postponement of the 2020 Bike for Women. We were hopeful that the outlook for the COVID-19 pandemic would improve, but unfortunately it has not. As stated in our last communication, the health and safety of our riders, volunteers, and community is our number one priority. With that priority in mind and the projected containment measures before us, May 3rd no longer appears feasible for the incredible 1,000+ person gathering that is the Bike for Women.
Our focus now has shifted to rescheduling the event for the late summer or early autumn (likely late August/early September). This target timeframe is consistent with other springtime events seeking new dates on local, national, and international calendars. By pushing the event back several months we are optimistic that we will make the 20th annual Bike for Women happen in 2020.
We realize that this new timeframe may not work for everyone. We also realize that some participants may choose to move on to other racing commitments. Most importantly, we recognize that some may wish to opt out over health concerns. Whatever the reason, any registrant unable to participate in this year’s event will have the option to defer their registration to 2021. And if, despite our best efforts, we ultimately have to cancel the 2020 Bike for Women, all current registrants will also have the option to defer their registration to 2021.
