While the devastating impacts of the coronavirus continue to be felt by families, communities and frontline services across the country, our thoughts of course remain with those most affected.
At times like this, sport pales into insignificance given the horrendous situations that many have found themselves in as a result of this pandemic.
However, the uplifting projects organised by clubs, communities banded together by a love of a particular sport, and the fundraising contributions of hundreds of thousands of people who used sport and exercise as a way to contribute to the 2.6 challenge to raise much-needed cash for charities, shows just how big a part sport and physical activity does play in our society.
The 2020 Tour de Yorkshire was due to start last Friday - fast becoming one of the most iconic sights in British sport, and a wonderful advert for cycling. That would have been followed by rides and races across the country throughout the summer - on roads, trails, BMX tracks and indoor and outdoor velodromes.
Children and adults, amateur and elite would have been creating their own new memories, ticking off personal achievements and strengthening friendships formed by cycling, as the world built up to the biggest sporting showcase of them all later on this year.
As we know, all of that now has to wait - for hugely important reasons. Just after 100th birthday, it seems appropriate to quote Captain Tom Moore, a voice of experience if ever there was one, who has reiterated his message to the British public that 'tomorrow will be a good day'.
We all want that 'tomorrow' to come as soon as possible, and we'd like to reiterate our thanks to all those in the cycling community who are continuing to adhere to Government advice, working on the frontline, volunteering and using their bikes for good - all of which will help us come through this together.
Please continue to ride responsibly, and stay safe and well.
