As Ireland goes into shutdown, the eagerly awaited Cliffs of Moher Cycle sportive has fallen victim of Coronavirus.
The announcement has come March 12th that organisers have taken the decision to postpone the event on April 4th until September 2020.
With Taoiseach Leo Varadkar now confirming all open air events with 500 or more attendees to be cancelled, they were left with no option.
Regarded as the first major sportive of the season, it attracts 1000 participants across three routes of 40km, 80km and 125km.
Cliffs of Moher Cycle Announcement:
Unfortunately, due to the rapidly developing Coronavirus Emergency we have had to make the decision to postpone the Cliffs of Moher Cycle to the 19th September 2020.
The decision was not taken lightly, but is in the best interest for the safety of Participants and Volunteers. Our thoughts are foremost with the people who are impacted by the Virus directly and indirectly.
I would encourage you all to keep supporting us and hopefully we will have a great day on the 19th September.
All registered Cyclists will receive an E-mail from Eventmaster shortly.
