Vélo Essex

Statement from Vélo Essex

In light of the ongoing Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak and the latest social distancing measures, it is with much sadness that we announce the cancellation of Vélo Essex, scheduled to take place on Sunday September 20, 2020.

We know how excited you were to ride the inaugural event and that many of you had already begun training and raising money for a range of amazing charities. Please believe us when we say that we share your bitter disappointment – we are absolutely devastated that we’ve had to make this decision.

We hope you’ll understand why we have had to make these difficult decisions and we want to reassure you that in no way have we benefited from this incredibly unfortunate situation.

On behalf of all the Vélo team, we want to wish you and your family well over the coming weeks and months.

Refunds & Donations

The EHAAT Events Team will be in contact with all of our participants and we will be offering a full entry fee refund (or the option to donate it).
