South Coast Bike Fest™ cancelled in accordance with Disaster Management Act
On Sunday, 15 March 2020, president Cyril Ramaphosa addressed the nation regarding COVID-19, announcing that a National State of Disaster has been implemented. As a way to minimise the spread of the disease, all gatherings of more than 100 people have been cancelled with immediate effect. In accordance with the Disaster Management Act, the organisers of the South Coast Bike Fest™ have announced that the event, scheduled to take place in Port Edward from Saturday, 25 to Monday, 27 April, has been cancelled. This was the second of five Bike Fest SA tours taking place in 2020.
Vicky Wentzel, owner of Wozani Africa Events and co-founder of Africa Bike Week™ & South Coast Bike Fest™, stated: “It is unfortunate that this highly-anticipated event has to be cancelled, but, in light of the global pandemic, it is undoubtedly the right decision. The priority for all our events is the health and safety of the attendees and participants.”
Full refunds will be made to any ticket holders of South Coast Bike Fest™. Refunds will also be made for any accommodation booked through Howler. To receive your refund, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
