We would like to take a moment to advise you of our policy regarding our tours and cycling the KVR this summer and plans beginning for 2021.

These are very uncertain and changing times and we must be willing to change and support each other through them.

To this end, we wish to thank you firstly for choosing to spend your cycling vacation with us on the KVR. We hope to see you here! however, should travel plans need to change for your safety, health and well being, we are committed to ensuring that this is one area you do not need to worry about.

While our first tours of the season are still weeks away, we want you to be aware that if need be, we will do our utmost to reschedule you to a later date of your choice. If you have already booked with us for 2020, and your tour is cancelled, or you are unable to travel, or feel it is not a safe or wise decision to travel, you will have first choice for dates for 2021.

We are no longer accepting any further bookings for this season – this will help us to reschedule existing bookings either to later this season or to 2021. If you are unsure of the status of your booking, please feel free to contact us via email at kettlevalleyrailtrail@gmail.com.

We remain in full support of the “flatten the curve” objective of reducing the impact of COVID-19 globally and if need be we will cancel this seasons tours. Regardless, we encourage you to try to continue to be as active as you safely can, fresh air and exercise are so important, not only for our physical selves, but for our mindful selves as well. Please do so under the current guidelines within your region. Putting others at risk will only delay our return to an active and social life.

I have been overwhelmed by the positivity of you, my fellow cyclists and guests and grateful for all of your kind words and offers, and do sincerely hope to meet you in health and happiness in the near future.

We wish you, your friends and family, all the best, and thank you for your patience and your support through this very challenging time.

We are already beginning plans for 2021, which will also include a celebration of our 10th year organising and operating self-guided cycle tours on the KVR, and we hope you come along to celebrate too!

Paula Sheridan and the team at KVR Cycle Tours
