Update May 28, 2020 Important: COVID-19 Pandemic HBC Message

The HBC board of directors is continuing to monitor the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and the decision to postpone the start date of the official club rides for 2020.

We are monitoring the situation as Phase 1 of New York’s re-opening begins this week.  The board is determined to follow the advice of public health officials, so as to keep all of our members and the general public, as well as those near to us, safe.  Following a successful Phase 1, we will meet again to determine the next steps toward club riding, and make any adjustments based on the current conditions.

As long as the public health indicates a need to continue suspension of activities, we will continue to do what's in the public interest.

During this suspension of club activities, note that club email, Groups.io and the HBC Facebook page may not be used to schedule any rides.  PLEASE abide by this request.  We appreciate the cooperation received thus far.

The interruption of club activities includes all meetings as well.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
