Hello!

We're happy to announce that we've rescheduled some of our most popular 2020 rides. You can find details here on our website - just visit the homepage.

If you have already registered for any of the rescheduled rides, your place will be automatically transferred to the new date. If you are unable to attend on the new date, you can transfer your place to another rider - please see the relevant ride page for details of how to do this

Unfortunately, some rides - such as the New Forest, Tour de Tendring and Essex Castle rides - have not found new dates but we're still hopeful of staging the London to Southend ride at a date in the early Autumn. If you've registered for this ride, we'll contact you by email to confirm the new date.

Please note that the Manchester 100 ride, due to take place in September, has been postponed and will now be held in Spring 2021, on a date as yet to be confirmed. Again, your place will be automatically transferred to the new date but if you are unable to attend on the new date, you can transfer your place to another rider - please see the Manchester 100 pages for how to do this.

Social Distancing

On this year's rides we'll be employing measures - recommended by British Cycling and Public Health England - at the Start & Finish venues to promote rider safety. These will include one way systems, physical screening & contactless payment for on-the-day registration, as well as setting riders off in small groups. Having once departed, each rider will be able to ensure they maintain a safe distance between themselves and other riders for the duration of the ride.

We'll email all registered riders a set of guidelines in advance of the event, setting out the measures that will be in place on the day. And if you have any queries you can always contact us using the contact form accessible using the link in the menu, above.

In line with the NHS Test and Trace programme, we will retain the contact details of all participants for 21 days, to be made available to the NHS as required.

DO NOT take part in any ride if you have symptoms consistent with (or you believe to be) Covid-19

We look forward to seeing you at the Start line. In the meantime, stay healthy - and keep pedalling!

Best wishes - The Bike Events Team

COVID-19 UPDATE at June 2nd


We are continuing to work towards rescheduling as many of our 2020 rides as possible. Details of those rides with confirmed new dates can be found on our homepage.

The New Forest and Suffolk Coast rides, due to take place this month, have still to find new dates but we hope to be able to announce these soon.

We're also working to reschedule the Tour de Tendring, Essex Castle, London to Southend, London to Cambridge and London to Windsor rides and hope also to be able to announce new dates for these rides soon.

Please note that the Manchester 100 ride, due to take place in September, will now be held in Spring 2021, on a date as yet to be confirmed.

If you have already registered for any of the rescheduled rides, your place will be automatically transferred to the new date. If you are unable to attend on the new date, you can transfer your place to another rider - please see the relevant ride page for details of how to do this.

We hope to resume online and postal registration shortly and will notify all riders on our mailing list when we do so.

We hope that all of you are well and that the better weather is as least managing to lift your spirits a little, despite the continuing crisis and uncertainty.

Just to remind you that Bike Events are still very much here and we're looking to rearrange this year's rides to more viable dates, wherever we can.

The options for those that have already signed up to an event is that you could take part on the new date, or transfer to a different ride, or substitute a friend in your place, or do the ride in 2021. Or when the dates are published, if you can't make the ride, you can apply for a refund less an admin charge to cover bank and credit card costs.

Updated ride information will be posted on our website and on our facebook page. We'll also send out email updates to those on our database. We know that some of our emails get diverted into spam folders so make sure you check there, too. And if you want to unsubscribe from receiving future email newsletters from us, there's an 'unsubscribe' button at the bottom of each newsletter.

Stay well and keep cycling!
