COVID 19 PANDEMIC
EVENT POSTPONED TO JUNE 2021
As we’re sure you’re already aware, the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has meant that it’s now vital to limit social contact and avoid gathering. For that reason, we’ve made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel this years Moors One Hundred. While we know this is disappointing, we hope you can understand the steps we’re taking to help keep our attendees and staff safe.
We have waited as long as possible in the hope of some sort of solution, and even put in detailed plans to run in September if the original date was not possible. However it is now clear that any running of this event in 2020 is simply not possible. Despite our best efforts to go ahead and keeping everything crossed, it just can't be run safely.
We are all hugely dissapointed, absolutely gutted to say the least. We have worked incredibly hard over the last year to make this into the best weekend of cycling in the UK.
Moors 100 has never been a commercially motivated project (and i'm not knocking those do events for a living, I now appreciate just how much of a headache it can be!), just a dream to build what to us is the best weekend imaginable, a great route in the best part of the country, topped off with a great evening of food, drink and live music at High Paradise Farm. So many people have helped with this project and I desperately wanted this to happen as reward for all their dedication and the love they poured into making this dream come true.
The final decsion came yesterday after talking to various suppliers, our friends at Goathland Hub and High Paradise who all agreed that running this year was just not safe to do and secondly, logistically impossible.
What happens next?
We have postponed the event to 25-27 June 2021. We are hoping that by then life will have returned to normal and we can run without restrictions, although even this we cannot be sure of. No one knows. Both the start venue and overnight stay are both reserved and we are talking to the musicians we had lined up and to also to our brilliant food providers.
All tickets for the 2020 event will still be valid for next years event and automatically added to the entry list in January. Until we know how things pan out we will not be offering any more tickets for next years event. If we do have cancellations, we could offer these to your friends who missed out this year and to those on the reserve list, but again this will be sorted out nearer the time when we have better understanding of the situation.
We are also talking to Eventbrite about refunds should you wish to go down that route, again this is all new to us and we are just trying to grapple with how that aspect works. We dearly hope that you choose this option as a last resort though as 100% of the ticket price goes directly to our partners, the local businesses up on the Moors that make this event possible. All ticket monies will be held by Eventbrite and guaranteed until the running of the 2021 event too.
I'm desperately sorry that this event cannot go ahead, I was so looking forward to meeting you all and showing you all our beautiful Moors. I'll count the days until that can happen. Until then please keep safe and healthy. If you need to get in touch do so.
Finally I would like to thank everyone who has helped out on this event. I know you have given everything for this. You will get your hugs and a beer when this event runs again, and it will, better than ever, just hang on in there!
Thank you for your understanding
A weekend of great trails, great food, live music and good company. Equally appealing to both experienced bike packers, to first timers and the simply curious, Moors100 is intended as a gentle introduction to the art of bike packing and the joys of our beloved North York Moors
A challenging but fun route awaits you, taking in the very best of the moors. Over 90% of the route is off road, with glorious vistas, sleepy villages, sites of historical interest, entertaining singletrack, fast gravel roads, forests, miles of open heather moorland, cosy country pubs and a few surprises along the way.
After a wonderful day of adventure you can look forward to an evening at the marvelous High Paradise Farm. There you will find great food, craft beers, live entertainment, semi wild camping and stalls from our friends at Alpkit and Sonder Bikes to look forward to. After a night under the stars we will feed you and send you on your way for another fantastic day of riding.
