The WSBA is on sound financial footing. Over the last 4 years we’ve been able to manage the organization in a way that has created a cash reserve that insures our viability while allowing us to have options to address some of the ramifications of this pandemic on the sport.
We are still hoping that the PNW cycling community will have an opportunity to compete and participate in cycling events this summer through the end of the year.
However, we are also cognizant that the decision of whether and where events can be safely held will be determined by the cities, counties, and state decision makers. We also recognize that the lengthy planning lead time for certain events may result in their cancellation due to the general uncertainty of venue availability and the loosening of existing government restrictions.
The WSBA board is evaluating options to address your 2020 WSBA membership under varying scenarios of how much racing does or does not occur. We are also in the process of exploring ways to support numerous PNW competitive cycling events in 2021 that have been or will be cancelled for 2020.
As the landscape is still in flux we are not yet at a point to know which of the scenarios to pursue that best support the sport and you our members but please be assured the WSBA is laying the groundwork to support the PNW cycling world as the existing regulations and restrictions loosen.
