The Sea Otter Classic has been postponed due to concerns about the Coronavirus. The annual bicycle tradeshow held in Monterey, California in April sent out a communication earlier this week that they were weighing options on how to best deal with the event, and now they have decided that it is best if it is postponed.
Frank Yohannan, the president and CEO of the Sea Otter Classic sent out this letter in regards to the cancellation:
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.
President & CEO
Sea Otter Classic, Inc.
