All we want to do is ride our bikes. Seems so simple, and a year ago it was.
Our dedicated Waco Wild West 100 committee constructed a detailed and well thought out plan for a safe event for riders and volunteers alike. We submitted the plan to the authorities and received a permit.
Unfortunately, like everything else in 2020, nothing is for certain.
On September 15, 2020, the mayor of Waco extended the State of Disaster to October 31, 2020, which means no gatherings of more than 10 people.
The situation is out of our hands. We gave it our best, but our 2020 ride is cancelled. But…you can still do a virtual ride.
We are working with RaceEntry to streamline the process; within the next two days, all registered participants will receive an email with instructions offering the following options:
- Full refund, as promised
- Deferral to the 2021 ride which will include a bonus swag item for sticking with us. What will that be? Not sure yet, but perhaps a hat, a pair of socks, anything but a mask.
- Virtual Ride Option to receive your finisher medal and shirt (shipped at no charge).
- Donation to Be the Match, for which you will receive a letter for tax purposes.
Thank you for your understanding and your support of our ride. Stay safe, stay healthy, and KEEP RIDING!
