About The Canterbury and Tunbridge Wells Bike Ride


Dear cyclists, supporters, and friends of the Canterbury and Tunbridge Wells Bike Ride, in light of the current Covid-19 pandemic we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the launch of registrations for the Canterbury and Tunbridge Wells Bike Ride.

The Canterbury and Tunbridge Wells Bike Ride is currently scheduled for 26th July 2020, and we will be monitoring the situation in line with WHO and official advice before making a call on whether the event will take place as planned or be postponed. You will appreciate that these are uncertain times.

We recognise that many of you will be disappointed, but trust you understand the importance of protecting the health of our communities, families, and ourselves in the coming weeks. 

Please do keep an eye out for updates from us as the situation develops - we look forward to seeing you in Canterbury and Tunbridge Wells on 26th July providing conditions permit.

Kind regards and a disappointed,

Richard Best and the Iconic Cycling Events team
