In a cautious move, the event promoters of the Sea Otter Classic announced today they plan on rescheduling the 2020 edition amid fears of the coronavirus. Originally scheduled for April 16-19 the largest cycling consumer trade show in the country is on hold.
Here’s the official statement from the Sea Otter Classic:
Sea Otter Classic Supporters,
After a thorough review of the coronavirus threat, we’ve decided to reschedule April’s Sea Otter Classic. Additionally, People for Bikes and Sea Otter Classic will reschedule the Bicycle Leadership Conference.
We are coordinating with local authorities to determine the best dates to host the 2020 Sea Otter Classic and Bicycle Leadership Conference. We anticipate announcing those dates by the middle of next week.
Information regarding registration refunds and rollovers will be posted on our website once the new dates have been finalized.
Thank you again for your understanding and support during these challenging times.
