Tour de Yorkshire Ride Postponed
A statement from Tour de Yorkshire Ride organisers, Human Race:
We wanted to share with you the news that the 2020 Tour de Yorkshire Ride has been postponed.
Over the past few weeks we have been working alongside Welcome To Yorkshire, fellow organisers, medical experts and all our amazing stakeholders to fully understand the potential impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on our event. Unfortunately, the situation has become more serious and today it was announced that the Pro Tour has been postponed with a new date still to be confirmed. Alongside this, the sportive we were all looking forward to has been similarly affected
We’re sure you share our disappointment regarding this unavoidable situation, especially as you have been training hard to be able to complete the challenge. At this stage our contingency plans are focused on looking for new dates for you. This is complicated as the event has a global impact (the Ride is directly linked to the Tour de Yorkshire Pro Ride which makes it so unique). We will keep you informed with the options for you as soon as we can.
What happens next?
We will come back with a further update by the Thursday 9th April at the latest. Whilst we understand you are likely to have questions, we’d appreciate your patience while we work through the process.
Finally we’d like to take this opportunity to thank you, our amazing cyclists, for your hard work and dedication up until this point. We’re very much looking forward to taking the next stage of this challenge with you.
If you have any more questions, we will be in touch again on 16th April. Our customer services team are inundated with questions at the moment but you might find the answer to your question on our FAQ page here. (http://humanrace.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/TDY-FAQ-DOC.pdf)
