Rides and Lockdown – Update

National Lockdown: Prime Minister Boris Johnson has set out the timeline for coronavirus restrictions to be gradually eased in England, with all legal limits on social contact to be lifted by 21 June. The plan aims to be “cautious but irreversible” and at every stage decisions would be led by “data not dates” so dates are flexible.

British Cycling is planning for a resumption of all activities and events in England following the announcement of the roadmap for the easing of lockdown restrictions. However, the current suspension of activities remains in place. 

Following a meeting with Sport England and other national governing bodies  British Cycling has  published information related to its plans for a return to sanctioned activities and events in England.  Subject to Government guidance, from March 29 British Cycling-affiliated Club rides or recreation programme rides for up to 15 participants will be permitted.
