Your executive has sadly made the decision to cancel the much anticipated Good Friday Ride on April 10th, 2020. Our cycling season will also be postponed until further notice.
Attempts to ride in a group, however carefully we try to socially distance ourselves, is just not a good practice or example to set right now. The safety and well being of our club friends and our extended community are the primary concerns for all of us.
Some countries have completely banned cycling outside but that has not yet happened here. As Cyclist online magazine states: “By all means, as things stand, if you really want to ride outside, go and ride but keep it short, keep it sweet and do it either alone or, if lucky enough, with somebody that you live with.”
Until we all get through this and we will, ride your rollers or wind trainers, hike or ride safely outside. Until we ride together again, please don’t forget to share with other Freewheelers how you are and what you are doing through comments on this post or on our private Facebook page. We are exploring creative means of keeping in touch so any suggestions are very welcome.
