MOVING FORWARD. . .








 

We're moving forward.. 

For 6 out of the past 7 years, the Girona Cycling Festival has provided us with an excuse to merge our passion for cycling with our love for Girona. The past year has been a difficult one for everybody: adapting to the constant changing rules, regulations, hopes and fears, not to mention the loss of family and friends. We have certainly had our share of the rare highs and mostly lows.
 

Last year we were optimistic in our ability to run the festival in June and then hopeful for a festival in October and finally accepting the need for a modified version of the festival in October. Each time we moved forward within the ever shrinking parameters that the pandemic allowed.

While we all knew that flipping the calendar over to 2021 would have no miraculous result, we were encouraged by the news of the successful vaccines, and pushed forward, as much as was possible, in organizing the 2021 Festival.
However, even as the news of vaccines grows, our parameters have not grown enough just yet..  

Tough times altogether for sure and though things seem to be coming back slowly but steadily, many restrictions are still in place both locally and internationally...
We cannot, in good faith, promise to provide an event that everyone is looking forward to, and meet the expectations of the previous 6 years.  
The festival isn’t just about riding a few kilometers. It is a week of festivities, camaraderie, food, friends, and fun, both on and off the bike.  We have a responsibility to you, to our volunteers, to our collaborators, sponsors, and to our staff, to keep everyone healthy.   
 
It is with that in mind that we have had to make the incredibly difficult and emotional decision to - once again - postpone our beloved festival until 2022.. 
 
We just don't feel like it is the right thing to force running a festival with all the restrictions and travel bans and you wouldn't get even a snippet of the experience we normally share with you.  
The festival has each time been the best we have to offer and we feel like if we can't do that, we'd rather wait until we can...  
Like in October, during the planned festival dates we will organise rides and coffee&cake stops for those who can make it to Girona or are already in Girona.
We will update you on this at a later stage.
For now, we will automatically move your entry to the event in June 2022 and at a later stage we will contact you to confirm you can make it in 2022 or would like to defer to any future year.
 
Our colleagues at Bike Breaks will contact you if you had a bike booked for the 2021 festival.

We look forward with great anticipation to seeing you in June 2022.

 

We're hanging in there and staying strong knowing that all of you out there are supporting us and will come visit us in Girona as soon as you can!
