Updated - A message from our President about biking during the pandemic

Hello everyone,

We are as eager to get back to group riding and post-ride socializing as you are. We look forward to reopening the ride season just as soon as it is safe and socially responsible to do so. We continue to monitor the situation closely, reading each new piece of guidance and executive order that is published by the governor’s office, the Minnesota Department of Health, and other agencies as soon as they are released. We were hopeful that this last round of loosening of restrictions, which took effect June 10th, would free us up to resume group riding, but they didn’t clearly do so. Because the published guidance left some doubt in our minds, we decided to reach out directly to the Minnesota Department of Health. Given the size and visibility of the Twin Cities Bicycling Club, we thought we might be able to get a direct reply from them, and we did. They indicated that they are “hopeful and optimistic” that if the COVID-19 health measures continue to move in a positive direction, that we will be able to resume “cycling in a group” by the end of June. While this is disappointing news for some, it is potentially exciting and optimistic news for others.

As a step toward a full reopening of the group riding season, we would like to announce the launch of a new solo ride program. In a nutshell, a limited number of rides will be posted to the ride calendar starting on Sunday, June 14th. Members will be able to easily register for the ride, download the route, and ride the route whenever it’s convenient for them during the following week. You’ll have approximately one week to ride the route and report that you’ve completed it. Riders will be covered by club insurance while riding the route. Riders will also get mileage credit for completing the route. We encourage you to ride solo or with members of your immediate household. More details will be coming shortly.

Stay safe. Ride often.

Sincerely,
Shelby Miller
President, TCBC Board of Directors

TCBC Statement on Racism

As the largest recreational cycling club in the Twin Cities we realize that now is not the time to be silent. We are shocked and disturbed by the unjust deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and so many others. We recognize the powerful effect that systemic racism has had on our black community, as well as other people of color. We don’t have a lot of answers right now. We are listening. We are learning.

We recognize that we, the Twin Cities Bicycling Club, have work to do to connect with all races and cultures. We believe that black lives matter and are committed to creating a more inclusive climate within our cycling community. More to come.
