COVID-19 Update:

Given the seriousness of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic we know that you will be anxious to know what is happening about the 2020 Dartmoor Classic Sportive.

The Dartmoor Classic Planning Team and the Mid-Devon Cycling Club wish to assure you that we take the health & wellbeing of everyone extremely seriously. We are very aware that the decisions we make have the potential to impact not only you and your your loved ones, but also others across the wider population.

We have been continually monitoring advice from the UK Government, NHS England, and British Cycling (the sport’s governing body) and have remained optimistic that we would be able to continue with the event as planned.

Regrettably, British Cycling has today announced that it is to suspend all sanctioned cycling activities until June 30th at the earliest. This decision has been taken following the latest advice and guidance from leading health officials within UK Government & Public Health England. The Dartmoor Classic Sportive is a British Cycling Registered Event and we are in full support of their decision.

The 14th Edition of the Dartmoor Classic Sportive will now be postponed until 20th June 2021.

WHY HAVE WE TAKEN THIS APPROACH?

Some event organisers have made the decision to postpone their events until later in the season. None of us know when this pandemic will be brought under control, by rescheduling by just a few months they risk further uncertainty and the potential of having to reschedule again. It is also totally impractical for organisers to attempt to host the whole seasons events within just one or two months. Allowing 15 months will provide a more realistic chance for things to return to normal.

WHAT HAPPENS NOW?

Everyone who has entered the 2020 Dartmoor Classic will automatically have their entry transferred to the revised date (20th June 2021). Your place is guaranteed, and you will not lose any of your entry fee.

The Dartmoor Classic Committee will work with its third parties to defer their supplies and services until 2021. Where this is not possible, Mid-Devon Cycling Club will undertake to absorb any losses to ensure that our participants and supported charities are not disadvantaged.

Our Online Entry System will be temporarily closed whilst this update takes effect.

All money that has been donated to the William Waite Memorial Trust will be passed onto them.

Any cycle jersey orders will be transferred along with your entry fee. The jersey design will be revised to reflect the new event date. If you are not happy with the revised design, you will have the option to cancel before the order is placed into production with Castelli.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I CANCEL?

Our standard terms & conditions apply:

If you cancel more than 8 weeks before the event you will receive a 50% refund, but only if we are able to reallocate your place to another person on our reserve list”.

Currently we do not have anyone on the reserve list and in this period of uncertainty we are unlikely to be able to sell further places. If you are seeking a 50% refund you would be better to wait until later in the year when people start registering once again.

SHOULD I STILL BE CYCLING?

Current advice is that it is both safe and desirable for people to continue to go outside to walk, run & cycle. However, it is vital that you adhere to the ‘social distancing’ policy which means that you exercise alone or with just one other family member. Make sure that you maintain a distance of 2 metres from each other and anyone else.

Please make sure you check the news each day to ensure this advice is current. It is quite possible that in the days or weeks ahead the UK Government might impose further restrictions on movement.

It is also imperative that you cycle responsibly and do not take unnecessary risks. Our NHS Resources are already being overstretched by the demands placed upon them by this virus. Please do not add to that burden through avoidable accidents.

If we all act responsibly now and adhere to the advice we are being given, we will give ourselves the best chance of protecting our loved ones and getting back to our normal ways of life as quickly and painlessly as possible.

Thank you for your support
