Regretfully we are cancelling Sunday’s event. We’ve been round the course this afternoon, and there are a number of places with deep standing water, potholes and debris. There is also one section with a road closure.
With the forecast for the next couple of days looking very wet and the water table already saturated, we can’t see conditions improving. We’ve looked into diversions around the affected areas, but these all look impractical because of further flooding, mud or the use of major ‘A’ roads.
Once again, we’re very sorry to have to make this decision, especially as we were hoping to raise a lot of money for the town’s X-Ray Appeal, but obviously rider safety has to be our first consideration.
Please spread the word.
