Covid -19 - Latest Update

Dear cyclists, supporters, and friends of Bike Bath.  In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic we wanted to update you on how the pandemic might affect the event.  With Bike Bath 2020 scheduled for 5th July 2020, we will continue to monitor the situation in line with WHO, official advice and our venue partners before making a call on whether the event will take place as planned or be postponed.  Rest assured, should the event be postponed those of you who have bought entries will see these honoured at either the new Bike Bath 2020 date or your choice of Iconic event in 2020 or 2021.

Please do keep an eye out for updates from us as the situation develops. We hope those of you excited to ride this year’s fantastic routes around Bath, Devizes and Frome won’t be disappointed, but will join us in doing what we can to protect the health of our communities, families, and ourselves in the coming weeks.

Kind regards,

Richard Best and the Iconic Cycling Events team
