CANCELLED: Battle of Britain Round 1
British Cycling has announced its return to activity plans which are listed below. Due to the roadmap set out below and uncertainty facing event organisers, a number of national events which were set to take place in April, May and June have now been either postponed or cancelled and unfortunately one of the cancelled events is the first round of the Men’s & Women’s Battle of Britain & Elite Grand Prix which was due to take place on April 17 & 18.
This guidance has been created following confirmation that all British Cycling-sanctioned activity in England falls under the UK Government’s definition of organised sport, provided that all involved follow the relevant Covid-secure protocols. Informal activity – such as going for a bike ride with friends – will remain subject to the Government’s general guidance on exercise and social distancing.
