Cancel those plans for today’s Resolution Ride. This message came in yesterday’s email:
The Resolution Ride has been postponed due to inclement weather! But don’t worry, you’ll still get a chance to continue your resolutions on our rescheduled date of February 12th! Same time, same place – and with the added bonus of happening alongside our annual Expo! This means more chances to win, more fun, more resolutions, and even more reason to come out and ride with us.
If you can’t attend the rescheduled date and would like a refund, please contact Gonzalo Garcia (firstname.lastname@example.org) to do so. Keep those resolutions going in the new year and come ride with us February 12th!
