A sad season

This is going to be a sad season for cycling events. We are regularly receiving notice from event hosts canceling their 2020 rides with dates as far out as August.

COVID-19 is an easily-spread and serious disease and it is only prudent, if disappointing, for some events to be called off. The virus is now “out there” and there is no prevention available but to limit interpersonal contacts. Cycling events, within the course of their operation, bring many people together at times in relatively close quarters and can provide opportunity for the spread of the novel coronavirus; and some facilities used in cycling event operations are closed by their owners against disease spread both factors sadly leading to cancellations. For more information on this public health issue, visit the Ohio Department of Health’s website.

For more information on individual events, use contacts published with each event listing.

Watch for event cancellations and postponements made in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus in the period of this spring’s Public Health Emergency. We will update this website as we receive changes.

Stay healthy and work to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to others; the sooner it stops, the sooner we can get back to normal.
