BROMPTON WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
Usually at this time of year, our community would be eagerly anticipating the announcement of the Brompton World Championship ballot and our planning for the day would already be in full swing. Unfortunately this year, things are very different. Today, it was announced that RideLondon, scheduled to host the BWC in May, will be cancelled for 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic. This decision has been taken by London authorities after engagement with partners involved in the planning of the event.
RideLondon is now concentrating on a virtual event later in the year and bringing the event back in 2022 and we hope we can join forces again to celebrate BWC as part of the world’s greatest cycling festival and of course, support the UK’s charities, who need our help now more than ever. Once again, the fate of the BWC is out of our hands this year, trust us when we say that nobody wants to ride bikes this summer more than we do, but getting together to do this in a big group, still feels quite a long way off from where we are right now in the midst of the pandemic.
However, please don’t think we are sitting around with our feet up, we are still working away to bring you some amazing virtual events and experiences for 2021. Keep an eye on our social channels or sign up to our emails to be notified about upcoming activities. Stay safe and hopefully we will see you all soon dressed up to the nines and ready to race!
