California is allowing SOME outdoor recreation, including skiing and snowboarding at large resorts such as Mammoth Mountain; but forbids most other outdoor recreation including cycling events, which require no "gathering" in lines or in public facilities (like ski lodges).

Endurance athletic events (especially bicycling) are generally very small, require NO gathering, and naturally allow for physical distancing as participants spread out over the miles.

Small event production companies, including Planet Ultra, have been shut down since March. We cannot stay open if we can't work! We need to pay our bills and feed our families. Our business can easily be made COVID-safe. Our participants are already strong, healthy people who are the least likely to spread COVID.

Allowing thousands to converge at a ski resort, but denying a hundred or two to ride their bikes, is both unfair and completely arbitrary.

We need to keep our business alive. We've been hosting cycling events for 20 years with no other source of income. These events help cyclists stay healthy and strong, mentally and physically, which benefits them and their families for a lifetime.
