From Ian Brown and Trish De Carteret
It is with great regret that circumstances and uncertainty around COVID-19 make planning, organising and taking part in 2020 30 Rides in 30 Days impossible.
Of course, getting exercise and fresh air are sensible for everyone so long as there is understanding and respect for the 2-metre social distancing. We thought that perhaps that meant our riders could use the challenge as an antidote to everything else that we are all needing to deal with. However so much has changed in such a short time since the first confirmed COVID-19 case in Guernsey. There could be more significant changes/restrictions that may occur up to the start of the event on 25th April and during the subsequent 30 Days. This has led us to make the hardest but correct decision to cancel.
The safety of our riders, supporters and the wider Guernsey Community are at the forefront of our decisions.
Of course, 30 Rides in 30 Days will reschedule but we are not able to say when at this point. For those riders that have registered we hope that you will be able to take part when the event does take place. For those that have paid a registration fee and would like it refunded please e-mail [email protected] or if possible allow us to hold it over until the rescheduled dates.
When we do reschedule, we hope there is more incentive if ever it was needed to fund raise for the charity. We invite you to become champions of the event and encourage others to take part too so we can raise as much money as is possible for the Les Bourgs Hospice, they will certainly appreciate your efforts even more than ever at this challenging time.
