Covid-19 scuppers plans for Isle of Wight cycling and food event

An exclusive cycling and food event which was due to take place on the Isle of Wight at the end of this month, has been postponed until spring 2021.

It follows the government’s Covid-19 announcement yesterday, limiting groups of people to six, except in specific circumstances.

New dates will be announced soon for the event that is being fronted by cyclists Sir Bradley Wiggins and Sean Yates and chef Raymond Blanc.

The LeBlanq:01 organisers said: “Huge thanks to all our customers, partners and supporters.

“We will make sure next year’s event is even better than we planned for 25-27 September.”
