Winter Bike League

WBL 2020 October Covid Update: At this time we are making no decisions on whether the WBL can go forward this year. We will continue to watch numbers and listen to experts and not politicos with an agenda. There is no doubt there cannot be a "normal" season under any circumstances and whether there are any WBL rides this winter remains to be seen. Rider safety and our ability to keep folks safe and healthy during a pandemic is our # 1 consideration. Because we are not a for-profit entity we do not face the same pressures as college football, the NFL, etc. More announcements on this issue to follow soon.
In the meantime, excercise your right to vote, and though the WBL is not a political entity, we do not exist in a vacuum and we do wish to make our position perfectly clear - we will not be on the wrong side of history. We have for over two decades preached and practised inclusivity and brotherhood / sisterhood and the constant stream of devisive, derisive, mocking, offensive, hate-filled speech that spills out of the White House like raw sewage on a daily basis is antithetical to everything we stand for. Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion and it seems important now more than ever to take a stand, so we've done so. This is neither a statement in support of progressive policies nor an indictment of conservative ones, just a statement of our belief of how all human beings should be treated whether you are a secularist or a spiritual person.
David Crowe on behalf of the Full Board of the WBL.
