Gilda’s TD Five Boro Bike Tour Team
Important COVID-19 UPDATE
On Wednesday, May 6th Bike New York announced that due to the COVID-19 pandemic they have cancelled the 2020 TD Five Boro Bike Tour:
Dear TD Five Boro Bike Tour Riders,
Like you, I never imagined that the 2020 TD Five Boro Bike Tour, originally scheduled for this past Sunday, could ever face cancellation due to a global health crisis. I would like to provide you an update on where we stand today, and how we plan to move forward. Despite our every effort to reschedule the Tour, we have had to face the sad reality that holding our iconic celebration of bicycling later this year would pose insurmountable logistical challenges, and present untenable health and safety risks to our riders resulting from the ongoing impacts of COVID-19.
For the past few months, we have been working tirelessly with our partners in New York City government with the hope of rescheduling the Tour in October. We tried very hard to find a viable solution, but the long-term implications of social distancing and the uncertainty around large gatherings post-COVID-19 have made it impossible for us to move forward with a 2020 event. This decision leaves us heartbroken. Read more.
Gilda’s Club would like to congratulate our 2020 Bike Team for raising $3,550 of much needed funds for our FREE cancer support community. COVID-19 is particularly threatening to the cancer community we serve. The donations raised will continue to support our community, compromised by both cancer and the impact of the COVID-19 virus.
