COVID-19 (coronavirus)

March 13, 2020

Dear Washington Student League Friends, Family and Supporters,

Today Governor Inslee mandated the closure of all Washington schools from March 17 through at least April 24th. As a result, effective immediately, all team activities are cancelled until further notice. This includes all team meetings, practices and races that fall within this period of time. The first race, currently scheduled for April 19th at JBLM, has been postponed.

Please know, our hearts go out to anyone who has already been directly impacted by this health crisis or who may be caring for a vulnerable person. As you know, our cycling community is strong and we have shown that we have a great capacity for volunteerism and leadership. We expect that most of you will be in a position to make a difference in your community. Furthermore, we are confident that you will find ways to stay healthy, to prioritize exercise and to get outside.

Yours in health and cycling,
Lisa Miller
Executive Director
Washington Student Cycling League

The Washington Student Cycling League is a holistic mountain bike program for students grade 6-12. We are a non-profit organization that partners with schools and community organizations to provide inclusive cycling opportunities to all students across the state.

Our mission is to promote youth development, confidence, leadership, health and public stewardship through mountain biking and positive outdoor experience and to create a foundation for lifelong cycling enjoyment.

Cycling teaches all of us that goal-setting, persistence and tackling one mile at a time can lead to unimaginable achievements.
