Dear participant of the 84th Eleven Cities Bicycle Tour,
There is a light at the end of the tunnel, but the road ahead is still long.
This is the way things look now – around 10 weeks before Whit Monday, the day on which the Eleven Cities Bicycle Tour would normally be organised. Over the past months, the board has brainstormed about a plan of approach for the 2021 edition. Due to the great uncertainty caused by the corona virus, we worked on two different scenarios: organising a regular tour and the possibility of an alternative version.
After cancelling last year’s edition, crossing out the tour again in 2021 was not an option for the board. The participants’ desire to cycle along the eleven Frisian cities is simply too great. At the beginning of this month, we, as the board, concluded that the prospects of organising a regular Eleven Cities Bicycle Tour are still not favourable. That is why we have been forced to decide to cancel the tour again.
Our ‘Plan B’, however, offers participants the opportunity to ride the tour independently from the end of May (the exact date will be announced later) for a certain period (see below).
Since the beginning of this year, we have been working hard behind the screens on building an Eleven Cities Bicycle Tour app, which enables people who were eligible to participate in 2020, to cycle along the eleven Frisian cities on their own.
This does not require an extra fee. The app will be linked to your account making your tour of 2021 eligible for your total tour count. The way in which to execute this link and the timeframe within which to do it will be communicated to you via an email at the beginning of May.
Below, we will list the features of the app and the conditions you need to take into account:
The government may impose regulations due to the corona virus, which might not allow you to cycle the Eleven Cities Bicycle Tour individually either. In this case, we will notify you about the cancellation of the Eleven Cities Bicycle Tour in this form and the consequences in a timely manner.
We hope to be able to offer you a beautiful cycling experience in this way. All the best wishes for a good preparation and a pleasant tour.
