Dear Party Pardee Participant:
As you are probably aware, California Governor Newsom has issued a public health advisory requesting events over 250 participants be canceled or postponed to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Even though Party Pardee is technically beyond the date of the current health advisory, we believe that it will be extended. Therefore, out of an abundance of caution for our riders and volunteers and consistent with the Governor’s advisory, the Sacramento Bike Hikers has postponed Party Pardee until Saturday October 24, 2020.
The October 24 Party Pardee will be held as usual at Howard Park in Ione. The event will feature the same outstanding routes, rest stops, meals and entertainment as we have delivered in the past.
If you have purchased merchandise with your registration, we will hold it for you until October 24. If you are local and would like to pick up your merchandise, we will have it for pick up on Wednesday May 6 at the Carmichael Clubhouse, 5750 Grant Ave, Carmichael between 5:30-6:30 pm. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org by April 21 if you plan to pick up your merchandise.
We understand that some of you may have other plans and will not be able to ride on October 24. While Party Pardee is a no-refund ride, we have always tried to accommodate these changes through our registration transfer program. If you would like to put your registration up for transfer, please email email@example.com after June 1 to be placed on the registration transfer list. Transfers will be accommodated on a first come first serve basis starting June 1.
Event cancellations such as ours potentially create a significant negative impact on the surrounding communities. We have to the best of our ability tried to buy local and support local businesses. We trust you will understand the reasons for this postponement and, will not only ride Party Pardee with us on October 24, but show your support for Amador and Calaveras Counties by registering again for our 2021 ride that will be held April 3, 2021.
We will post this and any other updated information on our website at www.bikehikers.com. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Again, the Sacramento Bike Hikers very much appreciate your understanding and we look forward to seeing you on October 24, 2020 and again on April 3, 2021.
