In light of the USAC statement to suspend sanctioned races and rides and even for clubs to suspend their organized rides, the SJBC board has decided to suspend the supported group rides through May 3. Any rides should be considered "show and go". We appreciate your understanding as it is better to err on the side of caution while we navigate through this unusual time.
As previously noted, we cancelled the Cat's Hill race for Saturday, March 21st. We hope this is temporary and plan to reschedule the race for September 26, subject to the status of the virus and the Town of Los Gatos.
Club Camp has also unfortunately been canceled due to the same reason.
Statement from USA Cycling:
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.
USA Cycling will continue to monitor and meet with partners to assess the state of this national emergency and its impact on the cycling community.
We are taking measures within our control and asking everyone involved in this sport to protect our community so we can get back to riding and racing with everyone in good health as soon as possible.
