Eroica CA 2020!

got this email just now!Save the date: September 25-27, 2020

We extend our warmest regards during these unpredictable times but are excited to share with you our rescheduled Eroica California and Nova Eroica California 2020 event date of September 25-27.

A little secret we’d like to share: September is a glorious time to ride in on the Central Coast of California! While the hills may be more golden than green, the chance of precipitation is almost nil.

Of course, we know that things can change quickly and also realize that there may be a ‘new normal’. What is clear, however, is that we can hardly wait to ride with you!

If you plan to join us in September, you needn’t do anything. Simply save the date.

Thank you from all of us at Eroica. We sincerely look forward to riding with you.

Seems there is no option for a refund? If we can't make the new dates we lose our money?

I believe prior conversions mentioned that they said you can also reschedule for the 2021 event. But otherwise, yes, they also said no refunds.

the people on the route up to the lighthouse will be mingling with them then I guess. the more social (not) distancing will feel nice to those of us that have missed routine interactions with others of a similar mind!

True. But, I'm not sure I want to ride Eroica the day after riding 100 miles on Saturday.

6 months from now, you will be ready. Does the century use any of the highway between Cambria and Cayucos? The Nova Eroica is Saturday.

Cino, if it happens, is 2 weeks before this. Presents a quandary for us non west coasters.

I believe all the Lighthouse routes go thru Cambria on the highway but don't go into the town.

Or an opportunity for us west coasters. I was thinking that perhaps I could ride Cino, and then @gugie, @numbernine , and others could reschedule and replan our Tour d'Eroica to ride from Kalispell, Montana down to Cambria. Let's see, that would give us 12 days between the two rides to go 1,384 miles, a mere 115 miles per day (or 1,585 miles if we wanted to go via Yellowstone). We'd be in great shape for Eroica by the time we got there!

Boy, that's a daring move on the part of the organizers--the conservative choice would have been just to wait until 2021 came around. But I guess it could work out. There may be a lull between the first pass of the virus and when it circles back in the fall, as it seems fairly likely to do.

Cino by a thousand miles. There's no way I can get away from work for both so it looks like this will be the first edition of Eroica CA that I won't attend.

Yes, and modern bikes.

I got the same email. I think a little optimistic, but what the hey. It is something to look forward to. Linn’s Here we come! The Medici is definitely ready as am I. Rich, you hear this? Fall is wonderful along the Central Coast.

No quandry. If you can't do both, do Cino. It's sooooooooooooooooooooo much better. I like Eroica, it's great to see everybody, but it's rather impersonal, whereas Cino is much more intimate.
