The city of Ottawa has announced that all public gatherings are being banned until June 30th due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the need to maintain physical distancing. This means that the 48th consecutive Preston Street races will not be held on June 21st. As well, a youth focused event that was in process for June 20th at Tunney's Pasture, will not go ahead.
Bikerace Ottawa will continue to work with the Preston Street Business Improvement Association and the city to hopefully find a date later in the year. As well, BRO is keeping in close contact with the organizers of the Tour De Gatineau which has also been postponed, to determine if combining the events to some extent might be possible.
Stay safe and healthy. We will get through this and back on our bikes in race mode.
