    Default April Road Races Cancelled

    Please note that BC have cancelled all events until the end of April.

    From BC:
    Based on the Government’s latest advice and guidance on the developing situation around
    Coronavirus/COVID19, British Cycling has suspended all of its sanctioned, cycling activities, initially
    until April 30.
    This includes (but is not limited to):
    - Competitive events at all levels
    - Non-competitive, registered events (eg sportives, reliability trials)
    - Recreational rides (throughout our suite of programmes including HSBC UK Breeze, HSBC UK
    Guided Rides, HSBC UK Ride Social, Let’s Ride Pop-up)
    - All educational courses or activities (eg coaching courses, Ride Leader courses, commissaire
    courses)
    The decision has been taken based on Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s caution against unnecessary
    travel and contact with others, to take the necessary steps to protect the health and wellbeing of
    riders, officials, volunteers and spectators, and alleviate the risk of an additional burden on the
    emergency services at what is a hugely testing time.
    We would strongly encourage all levels of the cycling community to join with British Cycling and the
    rest of the country in doing all we can to halt the spread of the virus in the midst of what is an
    unprecedented situation, however we recognise that this news will be disappointing, and potentially
    worrying, for some.
    British Cycling chief executive Julie Harrington said: “This was not a decision taken lightly and it is
    one we have taken in close cooperation with our colleagues at Scottish Cycling and Welsh Cycling.
    “We fully understand and appreciate the financial, social and community impact that this suspension
    could have, and we are working now to ensure that cycling is in the best possible health once the
    suspension can be lifted.
    “As I’m sure everyone can appreciate, these are truly unprecedented circumstances, and while we
    will be doing all we can to retain a sense of normality and continuity, it may take some time to
    return to full capacity as an organisation and as a sport once this situation has been resolved.
    “We will continue to update our members with more information, and will be doing everything
    within our power to support those who have contributed to the rich cycling culture that this country
    boasts.”
