Important Changes due to Pandemic

This is official notification that Dan Burden has been called back home by his organization, so we will not be streaming his lecture this week.....BUT he has agreed to do an online workshop with us as part of our effort to bring the St. Johns River to Sea Loop Summit to you virtually....so stay tuned.

And, we have definitely decided to postpone Saturday's trail ride until after the chaos subsides.  Being out in the fresh air is not the issue, but gathering before and after the ride is what we are worried about.  However, the welcome center will be open Saturday and we plan to have bottled water and snacks, so if you want to get on the trail anyway, stop in for a snack!  All trail ride registrations will be honored for the reschedule and everyone will be informed as soon as a new date is scheduled.

As a result of the COVID-19 global pandemic, we have had to make changes to our original program, and this notice will outline our modified schedule as it currently exists.  Many of our partners in this initiative are already under travel restrictions and we expect more announcements in the near future.
The Bike Florida Cycling Tourism Conference has been POSTPONED with no alternate date currently scheduled.  As soon as we know more about the scope and duration of the operational and societal changes as a result of COVID-19 and can work with Bike Florida to reschedule their efforts, we will make sure you are notified.
The St. Johns River to Sea Loop Summit has been modified significantly.  Here are initial details:
  • On Thursday, March 19th we will continue to host Dan Burden from BlueZones for his keynote presentation at 1:00 PM, however the location will be moved to Council Chambers at the City of Titusville (555 S Washington Avenue, Titusville, FL 32796).  We are also working with the City of Titusville and the Space Coast Transportation Planning Organization to live stream his keynote through various channels to make it available to anyone that cannot or will not be able to attend in person.
  • We are developing a plan for the rest of the workshops to be presented ONLINE through GoToMeeting.  Again, we will provide a schedule and details as soon as we have the chance to reformat and make sure all of the plans are in place.
  • The Half Day Strategic Action Planning Session with the Office of Greenways and Trail has been POSTPONED with no alternate date currently scheduled.  Our plan is to host that half day session as soon as possible, and again we will keep you updated on details.
We are GOING FORWARD with the Gear Up Ride It Down Community Trail Ride on Saturday, March 21st.  Please consider joining us and helping us spread the word that this event is still moving forward.  Please refer to Titusville.org/rideitdown2 for more information and a link to registration.  If you registered for the ride as part of your overall registration in the Trail Trifecta, that registration is still good and we look forward to seeing you on the 21st!
REFUNDS!  We will be issuing refunds to all attendees registered for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday activities.  If you are still able to join us for Dan Burden, you will still receive a refund and we welcome your attendance.
We’d like to thank everyone for their understanding.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to let us know.  This is a very fluid situation and is going to require additional communications.  We know everyone is being inundated with communications on COVID-19, so we will do our best to keep our e-mails focused and concise.
