United States | Southeast | Virginia >> Most UK Cycling events will be postponed in June due to Coronavirus

Most UK Cycling events will be postponed until at least June to help fight Coronavirus

British Cycling has taken the decision to extend its suspension on sanctioned cycling activities to 30 June at the very least. Currently still allowed to ride a bike outside for exercise

Some of Britain's premier events including the Fred Whitton Challenge and the Yorkshire’s Premier Sportive the White Rose Classic are effected.

British cycling said "With all UK Government guidance pointing towards a period during which the nation is being urged to come together to fight the spread of the virus, and the unprecedented burden currently on our emergency and public services, we felt that this is the most responsible – and only – course of action we could take at this moment."

Currently allowed to Ride a Bike for Exercise

Cycling is still allowed in the UK following the current public health restrictions

Riding a bike is a great way to aid your physical and mental health, provided that guidance on social distancing is followed. We urge all cyclists to only ride on routes you know well, that are close to home and that are well within your ability level - this is a time for calm recreation, not for challenging yourself.

Now, more than ever, we must ride our bikes responsibly - that means only going out on our own, or with people we live with, and keeping two metres apart from anyone we meet, stopping and waiting for people to pass when necessary. Doing this to protect ourselves and others, and to make it safe for everyone to ride.

If the cycling community continues to behave responsibly then we all hope to keep the roads and trails open for use, so that we can all manage our health during the coming weeks and months.
