Mason City cycling groups had been holding out hope that they would be able to compete sometime this spring.

For the Mohawk Mountain Bike Club, those hopes were dashed on Friday after the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union and the Iowa High School Athletic Association announced that all prep sports would be canceled for the remainder of the school year.

Early season events for junior cycling teams, such as Mason City’s SPIN DEVO, had already been canceled through its governing body, USA Cycling, through at least May 31.

As the coaches for both teams, Steve and Brooke Bailey could only wait and help their riders train.

Practicing as groups had been restricted by both team’s governing bodies, so they had to be creative in how they trained.

With safety guidelines in place, riders have only been able to train on their own or with family, Steve Bailey said.
