Virtual Cycle Touring Festival - Friday 12 February - Sunday 21 February

 Message from the Cycle Touring Festival organiser


Hello everyone,
With a sense of deja vu, we have some bad news and some good news.

The bad news is that - perhaps predictably - we have decided that it won't be possible to hold the Cycle Touring Festival in person this year. Although things may have improved by May, we just don't know for certain. Rather than spend all that time now, planning for something which may later need to be cancelled, we think it's better to just cut our losses and invest our energies elsewhere...

...which brings us onto the good news! Once again, we will be holding a virtual CTF this year. This will be a series of live talks, online workshops, pre-recorded content and films, all on the theme of exploring the world by bike. 

The dates for your diary are Friday 12 February - Sunday 21 February. We're assuming we'll still be in lockdown by then (in the UK) and, as this falls over both half term and Valentine's Day, we're hoping it will provide a distraction from the depressing thought that usual holidays and celebrations can't go ahead this year.

More details will follow but for now, enjoy planning adventures for when we're once again allowed out and stay safe.

Keep pedalling,
Laura
