September 12, 2020
While New York takes steps towards returning to a "new normal," the future of large scale events like ours remains uncertain. With this in mind, coupled with the fact that hundreds of participants, staff, and volunteers were anticipated to be in attendance this year, we've decided to cancel the 2020 Tour of the Battenkill. This decision was not taken lightly, but our priority lies with the safety of our cycling community.
If you were registered for the event, please check your inbox for an email including more details on what Tour of the Battenkill is doing to accommodate participants.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to [email protected]. We anticipate a high email volume, so response times may be delayed but we'll reply as soon as possible.
On behalf of the Tour of the Battenkill team, we thank you for your understanding during these unprecedented times.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
Due to the concern surrounding the coronavirus, the CDC's recommendation of no events of 50-plus people for the next two months, and the government’s rolling mandate around no public gatherings, we've been forced to reschedule the Tour of the Battenkill to September 12, 2020. This decision was not taken lightly, but our priority lies with the safety of our cycling community, from all of our participants to those who put on the events.
The entire country is being severely impacted by this pandemic, but we still want to provide the best experience we can under these difficult circumstances. If you haven't already reached out to us, your current registration will automatically be transferred to the new event date of September 12th. No action is required on your end!
Unfortunately we've already put a year's worth of time and resources into setting up the event, so no refunds will be offered. During this difficult time we appreciate your support and cooperation in this serious health emergency.
As a thanks for your understanding during these trying times, we’ll send you a special deal for the 2021 event once online registration opens!
On behalf of the Tour of the Battenkill team, we look forward to riding with you later this year!
