Linscomb & Williams Pedal Away Alzheimer’s Ride

2020 Linscomb & Williams

Pedal Away Alzheimer’s

2020 Ride Event Cancelled.  

 Linscomb & Williams Pedal Away Alzheimer’s Ride

    • Well, this is not the event we hoped for but, after a significant amount of discussion, consultation and planning, we have decided to cancel the  2020 Linscomb & Williams Pedal Away Alzheimer’s bike ride planned for Saturday, October 17th.  We established a detailed and comprehensive implementation plan that would have provided us a framework to host the event. Unfortunately, we felt that the challenges and risks at this time for all involved simply exceeds the expected benefit.

      To add a little more depth, having the event required so many detailed elements that the sponsors, riders and volunteers were frankly, going to be quite challenged.  Further, although our sponsors are amazing and support our event, some of them would like to err on the side of caution and not be part of the event this year. And when you consider the dynamics that would be required for volunteers, the mountain was just too big to climb.

      So, what does all this mean?  We will not have a ride and not reposition the ride as a virtual event.  Seems that virtual is the new concept for canceled events but in our view, we think you will still venture outside to ride whenever you want and don’t really need us to give you a virtual reason.

      We started the Pedal Away Alzheimer’s rides four years ago as a means to raise awareness and much-needed funds for Alzheimer’s.  We saw a gap supporting Alzheimer’s through cycling and, given that both our families have been directly impacted, rather than talk about it, we decided to do something about it by creating this event.

      Yes, we are very disappointed not to be hosting the ride and we will be back again next year.  We also hope that the COVID-19 environment becomes such that we can proceed with the 2021 Ready2Roll Cycling training series and ask that you please stay tuned as we share information about the series in the days ahead.

      Thank you so much for your generosity and support. We look forward to seeing you soon.

      Stay safe!
