The COVID-19 virus has brought significant challenges to our nation and cycling community at all levels.
In addition to the serious impacts of the virus on public health, many companies and organizations are facing serious hardship.
Events are canceled or postponed. Businesses are reducing hours, laying off employees, and closing. People are facing loss of income and childcare – all this while grappling with the fear of when and where the virus might touch their lives and their loved ones.
But we are not powerless. The cycling community is diverse, widespread, and strong. We are a passionate, motivated group of people ranging from the intrepid commuter to the adventurous kid to the winning Olympian. Millions of us ride trails, bike paths, roads, tracks, parks, trainers, and sidewalks all over the planet.
If we come together, if we channel even a fraction of our love for this sport into supporting our community when we need it most, we will endure this threat.
