COVID-19 Statement – Ard Rock

May 2020

Our next statement was due 3 June but this will be slightly late due to a delayed meeting. Thank you for your patience.

Ard Rock is the highlight of the year for many of us; thousands of riders, hundreds of brands and local businesses. The prospect of potentially having to cancel Ard Rock 2020 is hard to swallow, but it’s of the upmost importance to do the right thing for all attendees and the host community of Swaledale.

There is still much uncertainty around events and festivals happening in the coming months. We have postponed our earlier events in the calendar and we are currently seeking further guidance for Ard Rock and we will make a final decision before June.

Rest assured, Ard Rock will be here for years to come, we believe in it, and we know our community does too. When the time is right and the landscape is safe we’ll welcome everyone back together.

Our thoughts are with those who have been directly affected by the pandemic and we’re thankful to NHS staff and key workers who are selflessly keeping the wheels turning. Stay safe friends.
