April 7, 2021
As a past host of The Texas 4000 team, we are pleased to announce to you that Texas 4000 will have a physical summer ride this year with the 90+ riders on the 2021 riding ONLY in the lower 48 states. With the Canadian border remaining closed through at least late April and no news on when it might potentially open, this decision was necessary to allow us to move forward with planning with only 2 months before the summer ride begins on June 5, 2021.
Additionally, so that we can protect both the riders and the people in the communities in which we plan to ride this summer, all riders on the 2021 team will be required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 before the start of the ride on June 5, 2021. This decision was reached with consultation and advice from our epidemiological medical advisors, and is fully supported by the Texas 4000 board, staff, and the 2021 team’s ride leadership.
With just 2 months left until the ride begins, Your Support in hosting or finding hosting for the riders is needed more than ever! Without you, this ride would not be possible and we wouldn’t be able to engage so many communities in the fight against cancer.
