TweedLove Reschedule 80% of 2020 Events Calendar

by 0

It’s not unexpected, but with TweedLove’s COVID-19 induced reschedule, it’s a huge chunk of the cycling calendar being shifted. You have until 31st March to claim a refund if you can’t make the new dates.

In response to the global CV-19 outbreak, TweedLove organisers Hillside Outside have announced a huge rescheduling of their 2020 events calendar. Many of the Peebles-based organisers’ biggest events, including this weekend’s MTB enduro race Vallelujah, which is also Round One of the British National Enduro Series, will now be held later this year.

Other events affected include the TweedLove Bike Festival weekend, Bosch E-MTB Challenge, Glentress Seven endurance race, Gritopia off-road adventure, Skinny Tweed road sportive, TweedLove Family Day and more.

Riders who can’t attend on the new dates are being offered a 100% refund on all the events but as a TweedLove spokesperson says, “Obviously we’d rather people didn’t cancel – everyone knows bike events are a marginal business activity at the best of times but for now it’s going to be a grim fight for survival. The events industry is being hit very hard and it looks extremely unlikely that insurance will cover any loss of income from this.”

A statement from TweedLove explains: ‘It’s obviously a huge disappointment and comes with significant impacts for many – both personal and financial – but these issues seem trivial compared to the potential health impacts. This includes you (the riders), our crew, staff and volunteers, members of the local community and of course the families and friends of all these groups. It’s also the only sensible decision in order to support our emergency services and NHS.’

The events affected are:
