Dunwich Dynamo 2020 is on July 4th, the very day when hopefully group rides will be permitted again and the "hospitality sector" will be opening its doors.
However, the raft of other ancillary services that nowadays support and profit from the annual pilgrimage may not be there this year. Southwark Cyclists has cancelled its coach convoy and we may not see the daybreak opening at the Flora Tea Rooms and the provision of food and drink all night long all along the road.
But it is still expected that a cut-down version of the ride could go ahead, albeit with social distancing in place and perhaps even with prearranged staggered start times.
What time does it start?
8pm for a 9pm start. But some of us can set off at 7pm, to give ourselves a head start. That's PM. Saturday evening. Careful, that start time isn't precise, people start to leave when they feel like it after 8pm. A sort of momentum develops like bats from a cave, and suddenly it's gone.

We have taken the decision that we will not be running our transport from this year’s #DunwichDynamo.
We don't see restrictions being eased enough to be able to safely transport people back to London while supporting an event that involves mass gatherings.
