The Baltimore Bicycling Club and COVID-19

Dear Baltimore Bicycling Club members,

As you know, the entire world is engulfed in the COVID-19 outbreak which the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared a pandemic. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the WHO have provided guidance on how to best combat the virus that causes COVID-19. This guidance includes avoiding crowds and practicing “Social Distancing,” where we stay 6 feet from other people. These actions will help slow the spread of the virus.

To this end, the Baltimore Bicycling Club (BBC) Board of Directors is cancelling all BBC rides effective immediately until further notice. All BBC rides currently posted on the BBC website are cancelled. The Instructional Cycling Series, including the orientation, will not go forward as scheduled. Depending on circumstances, we will attempt to conduct the instructional program later in the season, possibly in the fall.

Additionally, events will be cancelled as necessary and cancellations will be posted on the BBC website. The Spring Social and the Kent County Spring Fling have been cancelled. We hope to host our upcoming events as scheduled.

Cancelling our rides, and thus limiting our exposure to others, is something we must do to help slow the spread of COVID-19. We understand this is disappointing, as our season is just getting underway and our calendar is filling up with rides. But the safety of our bicycling community, as well as our friends and families, is paramount.

The BBC Board of Directors will alert all members of our club when circumstances allow us to continue normal operations. In the meantime, be safe, practice good hygiene and distancing. We look forward to everyone participating in BBC rides in the future.

President of the Baltimore Bicycling Club,

Patrick Lapensee
