  • I received an email cancellation where I had to specifically ask for the refund, otherwise it would be donated to the village hall.

    It’s not a lot on its own but I’ve entered one every 2 or 3 weeks until July and had already written off next weeks Petworth ride. It soon adds up. I’ll probably write them all off as I’m saving a lot of other expense at the moment.

    I'll give some feedback as an Organiser. My own event on April 18th is postponed.

    1. For the longer / better supported events such as Dean's 1000 there are quite a few sunk costs such as bookings for Village Halls, route checking, etc. For me just running a 200, I've only put around £75 into the running of the event so far, with additional costs being postponed along with the event.
    2. Refunds are generally available in this instance however most orgs are doing this less paypal fees. Paypal has recently changed their T&Cs so the fees are still taken by them.
    3. Most organisers are looking to reschedule there event for later in the year or next, where entry is passed on. I realise dates won't work in all cases.
  • I sympathise with the organisers, sorry if that didn’t come across in the post. Could have added that I’m happy to give up the fee to ensure the events continue...

  • Sorry my tone didn't come across right in my post either.

    Totally understand it from both sides as I'm in both camps, rider / organiser. I was just trying to give some insight to the thoughts / conversations orgs are having.
