Due to the ongoing public safety challenges as a result of COVID-19, we have decided to cancel the Motor City Brew Tours – charity bike ride on August 30th that you registered for. We plan to be back with this event on May 1, 2021. We hope you can join then.
We will be fully refunding your ticket(s). You will get back an email from our ticketing site (Eventbrite) stating a refund has been processed and the credit/debit card used to make the purchase will be credited back. It will take a couple of days for the credits to appear on your card.
We are a small business that supports other small businesses and nonprofits through our tours, rides and events. Like everyone else, our business has been severely affected by COVID-19. We hope you are able to support us on a future tour or event down the road as things get back to normal. Please let me know if you have any questions. – Steve Johnson / Motor City Brew Tours
