9TH ANNUAL SPRING CYCLE UPDATE
As our community battles the COVID-19 pandemic, the Fort4Fitness Board of Directors and Spring Cycle committee have been following the announcements of our federal, state and local governments and the CDC regarding appropriate activities and social distancing. We are devoted to ensuring the health and safety of our participants, volunteers and spectators, and due to current recommendations, we have reluctantly decided to postpone the in-person Spring Cycle bicycle tour event until June 5, 2021.
Cyclists that have already registered for the in-person Spring Cycle will automatically be deferred to the 10th annual Spring Cycle on June 5, 2021 at Promenade Park. We look forward to next year’s fresh starting point at the new Promenade Park with an updated westbound course.
The 9th annual Spring Cycle will take place as a virtual bicycling event with participants logging cycling miles either indoors on a trainer or stationary bike or outdoors while practicing appropriate social distancing.
The Virtual Spring Cycle will take place over a two-week period in May to allow our participants the flexibility of choosing how and when to participate. A portion of each registration will be donated to a COVID-19 related charity. In addition, participants will be able to select a Fort4Fitness Charity Partner to benefit from their registration. There has never been a greater need to get out for exercise and a breath of fresh air! Please join us in encouraging our communities to connect, even virtually!
We welcome all cyclists to register for this new exciting 2020 virtual event. Registration is available at fort4fitness.org now through May 15th for $20. Participants will receive a 9th Annual Spring Cycle t-shirt via mail. Cycling dates are May 16th through May 30th. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER.
Updates of participants’ completed miles will be posted every Wednesday and Sunday on Facebook and to your email, based on non-mandatory participant submissions. This is an effort to give you some friendly competition and keep you motivated! Three participants will be featured on WANE 15 to talk about their motivation and journey.
