Important Notice

Dear Bike Bath community,

Thank you for bearing with us while we navigate the complexities of running a sporting event in the current climate.
As I’m sure you’ll appreciate, the safety of our riders and the communities you visit on our rides is of paramount importance and must be our top priority. We also want to ensure we can bring you a high quality event that meets both your – and our – expectations for a great day out on the bike.
It has become clear that mass-participation sporting events will be off the table for the foreseeable future. Particularly for small firms such as our own who simply cannot provide the infrastructure and facilities to guarantee our riders protection from Covid-19.
Unfortunately, this means that we have no choice but to cancel Bike Bath 2020.

However, this is not the end….

We remain focused on encouraging you and our wider community to stay active, set challenges, and get together in line with Government guidance. As such, we are in the final stages of planning an exciting alternative!
Stay tuned for more information in the next week – but we will be bringing you an extensive series of rides throughout the summer, awarding medals for finishers.
Rest assured we’ve not forgotten about you. We have been working hard behind the scenes to bring you an exciting new event soon.
Stay safe, stay active, and stay cycling!

All the best, and in anticipation of exciting things to come,

Richard and the Bike Bath Team
