Statement on COVID-19

As an outdoor event with riders spread out over the open road and air, cycling is an excellent option for recreation and exercise during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, when riders are off the bike there is a greater risk of being in close proximity to others and an increased risk of transmission. Given the recent surge in COVID-19 cases due to the Delta variant, the Day of the Tread Committee deems it necessary to take reasonable steps to mitigate for COVID-19 transmission at out event and to protect the health and safety of riders, volunteers, staff, and the community. As such, Day of the Tread is making the following changes to our event:

Masks

Masks are a required anytime riders are off the bike. This includes at the venue in the Sawmill District and at rest stops (recharge zones). When lining up for the start of the ride, riders must wear their mask until they start the ride.

“My first time participating in Day of the Tread. My first time in the Land of Enchantment. It could not have been more memorable, the people, the event, the fun, the energy, the breathtaking backdrops of the New Mexico landscape, the very worthy and honorable cause. I’ll definitely give it a 10, a 12 if at all possible!”

How Your participation helps kids in new mexico

Imagine you are caring for your grandchild. You still have to work because now you have more bills. Then, COVID-19 hits. Suddenly you've lost your job, which makes your housing unstable. It is even harder to put food on the table. Your grandchild has special needs and needs support with online school, but your internet is unreliable, English is your second language and you've never even heard of some of the online programs.

This story represents hundreds of people throughout New Mexico that Pegasus Legal Services for Children serves. The pandemic is difficult for everyone, but it has hit vulnerable people the hardest. By donating to Pegasus, you are making a direct, positive impact on those who need our support the most. Make a difference today. Support Pegasus by riding in the Virtual Day of the Tread.
