Hello Gaz - hope all good with you over there. Re the Rally - based on having heard no news re the current crisis from the Rally location I am assuming that at the moment it is still happening. If we do hear any news we will put it up here. Unless we hear from them first I will contact them at the end of the month and see what the craic is then.

And there is nothing on the Stena Line page about stopping the ferry yet. We will all just have to sleep in our bike gear helmets and gloves on to keep safe 🤣🤣

OK folks,

I can now confirm that this years Rally is unfortunately cancelled due to the obvious :( :(

We put a non returnable deposit down, however I am working to try and get it (or some of it ) back.

As it stands at the moment we are guaranteed the submitted deposit against the Rally in 2021

They have asked me to give them some time to work things out, so I will update here again in about 4 weeks time

Look after yourselves out there and hopefully we can all get together again in 2021

Yep, as Flinty states

ABR Ireland 2020 is CANCELLED

We are endeavouring to negotiate refunds but will have a better picture in 4 weeks or so.

Updates will be posted here as and when known.

Thanks for your understanding in the current climate.

Keep safe folks 8-)

Hi, All,

To be honest I would be quite happy for the deposit to be held over to the 2021 rally, thats the best I could get out of the ferry company, so I will be riding over in 2021 anyway, since most people are at home at the moment, could we agree a date for 2021 & get it in the diary nice & early?

All the best Keith

Hello Keith,

Sorting out the date is Heff's department & is arranged between him and the ABR Team. Usually the date is decided at the beginning of each year, but maybe can be done sooner due to the 2020 Rally now cancelled. Heff will probably be along soon to address your query.

Cheers

Hi Keith.

As soon as we have any relevant information, it will be posted here.

As for 2021, its unlikely a date will be set anytime soon.

Thanks
