****From Rolling Thunder Admin Team****
In light of the Covid 19 virus and the possible threat to the health and safety of our supporters, especially older veterans and those with suppressed respiratory or immune systems we have decided that it is only right to postpone Rolling Thunder 3 – The Long Good Friday at this point. We are also mindful of people starting to book accommodation/time off in good faith if we delay this announcement.
As veterans we do not normally let anything deter us from our path and so this is not a decision we have taken lightly. A lot of discussion has taken place based on credible information and we see no other reasonable choice, it would also be wrong to encourage people to carry on against Govt advice, which would be a likely scenario if we were to continue regardless.
We are not giving up with our support of the cause and we will be looking at organising a replacement ride at a time when it is safer to do so. Hopefully that will be a ride of celebration but regardless we will return and be strong together again.
Please accept our apologies and this is as disappointing for us as it is for you but as organisers we must consider everybody’s welfare and this is paramount.
We must ask you please not to try to go it alone or encourage others to ride/march regardless as it may be your loved ones that suffer.
Many thanks for your ongoing support.
