RFHavens 0 525

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.

USA CYCLING STATEMENT ON COVID-19

RFHavens 0 424

By: USA Cycling  March 12, 2020

We love bike racing and riding in every form, but safety is our number one priority. In light of COVID-19 and our concerns for the well-being of our community, USA Cycling is working to bring all athletes, coaches, and support staff back to the United States from locations abroad. Additionally, we have curtailed international travel for our staff & teams. We are asking our personnel to work from home.

The health and safety of athletes, coaches, staff, members, and the broader cycling community is USA Cycling’s primary concern and we are monitoring the outbreak COVID-19 closely. We remain in close contact with the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), as well as our local health authorities in Colorado for guidance and instruction.

Due to the wide-ranging events and jurisdictions involved, USA Cycling is not pre-emptively requiring the postponement or cancellation of any American events. Event organizers should work with their local government agencies and health providers to determine the risk associated with their event. USA Cycling policies and regulations never override civil laws, regulations, or policies.

Organizers who are concerned their event will be impacted should contact their USA Cycling Event Service Coordinator or Event Service Regional Manager, all of whom are prepared to assist in the case that events need to be postponed or cancelled.

At this time the 2020 USA Cycling Collegiate BMX National Championship, scheduled for April 4-5, has been postponed due to bans on public gatherings. We are working with USA BMX in an effort to re-schedule. The 2020 USA Cycling Para-Road and Collegiate Road National Championship is taking place as scheduled. We will modify qualification requirements for Collegiate Road Nationals to address conference race cancellations. As of this time, we are continuing as planned with the remainder of the 2020 National Championship schedule.

Please check our social media channels or the USA Cycling website for updates on all National Championship events. For all other events, please visit the event channels directly, as decisions to postpone or cancel will be made by event promoters.

Revised Member Upgrade Policies

RFHavens 0 524

Dear LAs,

As you have been made aware, USA Cycling has been revising the upgrade system for member categories. We are taking these steps for two main reasons:

1. Our existing policy is confusing, cumbersome, and resulted in a poor experience for our members.

2. The new membership product to be released the first week of February has features we hope will encourage riders to try out racing at a lower price points in a category that makes more sense for them.

Updates and Info

If you have any suggestions, please let Robert know. Try to be resonably specific if you can as it helps in the long run. Remember to update your links for the CCA Offcial website to carolinascycling.org. We have setup web forwarding from our old site address.

We are constantly looking to make improvements to this website, from how we manage information dislay to maintenance. Now that the CCA Annual meeting is complete and the base calendar set, we are building the events calendar with many new features. We have all events from that list added. Some of the event info is basic until either the promoter provides it to me (Robert) or I pull it from the USA Cycling website once you start the permit process there. We do ask that you information always include the name and date(s) of your event. For the maps integration, we ask that you include an accurate address to the staging site or parking area for your event(s). Also new, is the ability for us to add some details to your event listing. This should be in plain text format and be reasonable length (i.e. not all the info from your flyer) but maybe some good info that is not on your flyer.
