“Ultimately, the health and well-being of everyone associated with this event — our riders, volunteers, supporters, and our local community — led us to this decision,” said Martyn Jones, president of Paceline Ride. “We seek your understanding of this decision and know you share our concern given these trying times. The new ride weekend dates will be determined by working through the CDC’s guidelines as the coronavirus pandemic draws to a close later this year.”
Paceline is a year-round movement of communities and organizations interacting towards a common goal, to cure cancer faster, by raising money to benefit cancer research projects at the Georgia Cancer Center at Augusta University.
“Cancer remains the second leading cause of death for both men and women in the U.S. With your support, we remain united in our mission and will continue to fund life-changing research for people affected by cancer both in Georgia and further afield,” Jones said.
At this time, Paceline encourages everyone to continue a healthy lifestyle and be safe by practicing the CDC recommendations and guidelines.
