We have seen and felt the effects that the virus outbreak has had on us all so far. We want to write to give you some hope, but most of all give you something to help stay focused during these bizarre times.
We love delivering our Struggle events as we share that sense of achievement and the huge effort everyone makes to get to the finish line. We want to make sure these events continue to run, but in the current circumstances with Covid-19 and the Government and British Cycling Guidance, we feel our only option is to postpone the Struggle sportives until later in the year.
We did not take this decision lightly as we understand at this time people still need a goal, something to train for and some light at the end of the tunnel. However, the health and wellbeing of our riders, their families, the local community surrounding the venues, the rest of the nation and the NHS is our priority at this time.
We have been working hard in all areas of our business to create the best solution for all our customers in all areas of our business. As you can imagine, there is a lot involved in terms of potentially postponing and reorganising events. We thank you for your patience.
We are going to replace our Pace event, which was due to go live next week, and run Struggle Dales on Saturday 12th September 2020 and Struggle Moors will now run on Sunday 16th August. This will give everyone the opportunity to stay focused and keep training.

If you have entered Struggle Dales or Struggle Moors you will find more information below about any action you need to take.
Our ethos is to deliver exceptionally organised events that provide cyclists with a goal, a purpose to ride their bikes and a reason to push past their comfort zone. The ethos remains the same - and is reinforced by the current situation - but we cannot deliver cycling events without your support and understanding. It is now that we need your support more than ever to ensure these events continue to run.
Stay safe and stay at home. We’ll fight this silent enemy together and come out the other side stronger and fitter!
