Saturday’s Cap2Cap ride date of May 8th has been capped for new registrations. We have reserved a limited number of spots for our 2020 deferred riders and will continue to process deferrals as they come in. 
The safety of our riders, volunteers, staff, and community is extremely important to us. We thank you for your understanding and support. We will continue to follow the most up to date CDC guidelines and keep you informed of any changes. Please contact us at if you have any questions.
