A ‘bring your own bike’ policy is also encouraged.
Carl Thompson, MD of Cube Management, said: “We appreciate that given the existing – and introduction of new – restrictions due to Covid-19, people are rightfully wary of going out and attending events. However, we have been working very closely with the relevant organisations to ensure the event is safe.
“We have been collaborating with the East of England Arena to ensure the measurements we have in place are clear and are therefore delighted to have been accredited by the Safe Event Scheme.
“This is set to be a fantastic event for both cycling enthusiasts and families alike. We look forward to welcoming everyone on the day and simply ask that everyone pay attention to the guidance to make it a great experience for everyone.”
