With much disappointment the Bloomington Bicycle Club (BBC) must announce its decision to cancel the 2021 Ride Across INdiana (RAIN). Although our country continues to make progress against the COVID-19 pandemic, there are currently too many obstacles to overcome when planning an event of this magnitude. The uncertain availability of our normal rest stop sites and of volunteers to staff them means that planning has been unable to progress. In addition, for the safety of all of us during this pandemic, the multiple counties that RAIN crosses have imposed differing restrictions, and ensuring compliance with each is beyond our resources.
The BBC sincerely regrets any inconvenience caused by the cancellation of this year’s event. We certainly hope to be able to return in 2022. As always, the BBC thanks you for your support in the past, and we hope that you will continue to support us in the future.
Sincerely, The BBC and RAIN leadership team
RAIN is a one-day bicycle ride across Indiana that is in its 34th year. The 160-mile course runs from West Terre Haute to Richmond, following the Historic National Road (US 40) for much of the way.
One Day – One Way – 160 Miles!
Call for Volunteers
Volunteers are needed before and during RAIN to help with everything from registration to rest stops to the finish line. Contact us if you are able to help.
