It is with a heavy heart that I write to announce the cancellation of Vélo Birmingham & Midlands 2020 that was due to take place on Sunday 21 June 2020.
HM Government are strongly advising against mass gatherings and non-essential travel and even if it is possible that the situation may have improved by June 21 (which seems far from certain), working restrictions and self-isolation recommendations mean that we are simply unable to complete the work necessary in the next few weeks to ensure that the event could proceed safely and with minimum support from and/or disruption to local emergency services, whose vital work is rightly focused on supporting public health needs through these exceptional circumstances.
Vélo apologise for any inconvenience caused, particularly to those that made specific arrangements around the event and associated road closures. You can find more information about the cancellation on our website at www.velobirmingham.com
Vélo are now committed to ensuring that people are informed and updated about the cancellation, and we kindly ask you to assist us in informing any local residents and remove any leaflets or information you may have put up within your Parish.
Thank you in advance for your help and support in communicating this.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org
On behalf of the whole Vélo Team, we want to wish you well over the coming weeks and months.
The Vélo Birmingham & Midlands Route Team
