Ahead of the move to Step 3 of the Government roadmap in England from Monday 17 May, we are today pleased to share our updated guidance for cycling activities and events.

We want to say a huge thank you for all of your support, patience and diligence over recent months, which has enabled us to progress to this step – it is hugely appreciated both by ourselves at British Cycling and by thousands of riders up and down the country.

As ever, our guidance is subject to change depending on further updates from the Government, and you should continue to adhere to the guidance for Step 2 until Monday.

A summary of the changes can be found on our FAQs page here, and full guidance can be found in the documents below:
Technical Regulations survey

You may remember that in 2019 we undertook a comprehensive review of our Technical Regulations. In the spirit of evolution, we want to ensure that these regulations continue to evolve in a way that best fits each of our disciplines, and as such we are again opening a survey to enable you to contribute suggestions for potential changes to the regulations.

This will be an ongoing process, however for consideration for the 2022 Handbook, submissions must be received by 31 May 2021. Please note that any suggestions submitted throughout 2020 have been noted and do not need to be resubmitted.

We understand that there has been some confusion amongst riders about Race Licences and what they require to participate in an event. To support event organisers in their pre-event communications, we have created two pages which set out how riders can obtain either a full Race Licence or Day Licence.

If you have any questions on this, please email events@britishcycling.org.uk.
