Brighton Excelsior Cycling Club has taken the difficult decision to cancel the planned New Year’s Day 10 mile Time Trial.
This is in the light of the Prime Minister’s review of 19 December and the news that the new coronavirus variant is spreading more rapidly.
The event organiser (who is also the named police contact) has carried out a Risk Assessment review and has concluded that it would be irresponsible to run a competitive event with any possibility, however remote, of spreading the disease or imposing any additional burden on the health or emergency services.
We appreciate that this will cause great disappointment to potential riders. We will, naturally, refund any entry fees.
We hope that conditions will have improved by April to allow us to run our season of evening events.
We look forward to welcoming you on Tuesday 6 April for the opening 5 mile TT.
