I am not sure if others are as troubled and conflicted as we are by world events. We are being asked to distance ourselves from each other, however many of us feel we desperately need the support and companionship of others more than ever right now!
The sense of community and companionship within the cycling community is what helps us maintain our health and mental well being.
However, as a community organization, we feel a sense of responsibility to take a conservative approach and not jeopardize the health of others. So I want to inform you of the recommendations made from within the global cycling community.
USA Cycling (cycling’s governing body in the USA) recommends CANCELLING all group rides
All Organized events, races and fun rides have been canceled across the nation through April 15.
Our neighboring cycling communities are proposing 30 days of “no group rides” and maintaining social distance (i.e. solo riding)
In addition, the CDC and the White House are calling for “15 Days to Slow the Spread” and avoid social gatherings of 10 or more.
So while we hate to hear of these extreme measures CulpeprCycling.com administration wants to relay this important information so you can make an informed decision.
