Our favorite ride in the area is quickly arriving. In order to make our event possible we have been collaborating with our local health authorities and government agencies to assure the safety of our participants and local citizens. The recommendations of these organizations include some changes that will be made to the race this year. Below is a summarized bullet point of some of the changes that may be expected. Again, there may be changes to these recommendations and rules for our race this year as our situation evolves, so please watch for updates.
It seems as though masks have become an everyday part of life for us. Following our current recommendation all of our unvaccinated staff, committee members, and volunteers will be wearing masks during the event. All unvaccinated riders will need to bring their own mask to wear at the start of our ride, the end of our ride, and if possible, at any aid stations that you may take advantage of.
Historically the cancellation policy for 4PGF has been no refunds for the event once you have registered. Considering the impact and uncertainty of this year we have decided to make an adjustment to this policy for this year only. Outlined below is our cancellation policy:· We do offer partial discounts for those canceling during our cancellation periods.· If the event is NOT sold out, a discount code for 75% of your race registration fee will be offered until 5 days prior to the race date. No discounts codes will be given within 5 days before the event, if the event is not sold out.· If the event IS sold out, a discount code for 75% of your race registration fee will be offered until 5 days prior to the race date. No discounts codes will be given within 5 days before the event, if the event is sold out.· Partial discount codes are only available for cancellations of completed registrations. A registration is considered incomplete if payment was mailed in and has not yet been received. Discount codes can be used to register for another Headwind Cycling event and will be valid for 12 months after the event date. · If the 4PGF committee deems that it is unsafe to continue to race, for whatever reason, within 5 days prior to the race you will be offered an opportunity for a 75% discount code to another Headwind Cycling Event
