It is with deep regret that we have had to take the difficult decision to cancel the inaugural Vélo North, scheduled to take place on Sunday September 1, 2019.

Despite our best efforts, we were unable to attract sufficient riders to justify the event going ahead. We apologise to everyone who had signed up and was looking forward to taking part – we hope you understand our reasoning and appreciate that this was not a decision we took lightly.

If you entered the event you should have by now received an email detailing how you can claim a refund on your entry fee. If you have not received this and it is not in your junk folder, please email A full copy of our cancellation FAQs can be seen by clicking here – please review these in full before emailing our Participant Services team with any questions.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank Durham County Council for their support throughout the entire planning of this event. We were so excited about the prospect of delivering a Vélo Series event in the North East and are incredibly disappointed it didn’t work out the way we intended.

The Vélo North team.
