To all our amazing supporters,
For many months the Bass Coast Cycle Challenge committee has been in discussions regarding planning for the 2020 event, against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We know many past and new riders are hoping to experience this wonderful event in 2020. However, as Covid-19 continues to cause concern and uncertainty, the BCCC committee has taken the decision to cancel the 2020 Bass Coast Cycle Challenge.
“It was a tough call and we hope you all understand that we’re committed to ensuring the health and safety of all of our incredible volunteers and ride participants,” said BCCC founder Gavin Slavin.
As a charity event, run by volunteers, this decision has been held off until the latest possible date, taking into account timelines for planning, permit applications and other essential requirements. Being a charity event it is also critical to avoid investing funds into planning when there is a high likelihood of the event not being able to go ahead if restrictions are still in place.
We will definitely be back in 2021. Pencil in Saturday 6 November 2021 and watch our website and social channels for more information.
