News update from Ron Holt - OBS President
- March 15th
OBS is following the message that USA Cycling has reported on March 14th. ( see the article below )
Effective immediately, all OBS supported rides will be postponed until further notice.
Mayor Holt has issued a State of Emergency for OKC. One of the early takeaways from this statement is to eliminate all gatherings of 50 or more.
Falling in line with Social Distancing, the best plan for riding right now is to go out and ride solo or with your favorite healthy buddy and enjoy the outdoors.
USA CYCLING STATEMENT ON COVID-19
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.
