We recognise the very significant business and personal challenges that the current outbreak of Coronavirus creates for all sectors of the cycling industries of Europe. Our cycling industries are an important part of Europe. We support more than 650,000 jobs, we invest in green and sustainable technologies and we will continue to bring many benefits to Europe in coming years. Right now it is vital that we work together effectively to make sure our industry comes through this in the very best possible health, along with our employees, suppliers and customers. Read our member statement for the full details about the CIE response.

This Thursday, March 26th, we start a webinar series of essential Member Briefings about the impact of Coronavirus on the cycling industries providing an international overview of the most up to date news on the economic and financial impacts, a run-through of relief, recovery and funding aid packages available and discussing how to strengthen the position of the cycling industries to be best prepared for the recovery period. These webinars are open to all staff of member companies and places are limited, so make sure to register!

We have also put in place a new contact service for members’ Coronavirus queries and to help share information from our members and partners. Simply email us at covid19(at)cyclingindustries.com

Finally, we want to remind you to keep the date (and register if you haven’t!) for our CIE 2020 Summit on the 28th April, because we will be hosting it online, with high-level keynote speakers from the Commission, Deloitte and others. Stay tuned for an updated agenda soon!
