Wishing you a wet and annoying Typhoon Signal 8 from the Track and field venue. The team went out this morning and made it all safe and got very wet!
We do apologize as we know many came very far to join the event. Sadly when the Hong Kong Observatory calls Signal 8 everything in Hong Kong stops… and although we wish we could stop the wind in a T8, all of our insurance is cancelled…

To our Muni riders and non-participants that can’t make the muni or the BBQ ..
We are very sad about having to postpone the muni and BBQ.. Alas we cannot stop the wind and in a T8 all our insurance is cancelled… We do have some expenses that are non-recoverable and are currently working out how to manage refunds. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or watch for announcements.
