Welcome to the mini CROC 2020 ride!

Cancellation of 2020 mini-CROC

Pendleton on Wheels (POW) has been monitoring the increasing restrictions put in place to mitigate the coronavirus pandemic and regretfully announce the cancellation of the 2020 mini-CROC ride scheduled for May 23, 2020.

We strongly considered a different date for the ride, but after evaluating many factors the planning team voted to cancel.  Hopefully the mini-CROC will be back in 2021.

We thank those who registered and we are working on getting your refunds processed.  We will be sending an email to the address you provided when you registered explaining what to expect.  We will notify motels who have provided discounts on lodging of the cancellation of the event, but encourage you to contact them to cancel your reservation.

POW encourages you to adhere to the recommendations on social distancing, monitoring your symptoms, and keeping yourself and loved ones virus free.  Get out and ride if you can in small groups, maintain 6 foot spacing and avoid pace lines. We’ll see you down the road.

Thanks very much!
