National-level events
Due to the roadmap set out above 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 our team continues to work with event organisers to
find alternative dates for those looking to reschedule.
With restrictions loosening as we progress through the Government’s roadmap, we are
hopeful that we will be able to deliver a full and healthy calendar of national events
across the disciplines in the second half of the year.
British Cycling also remains committed to delivering the 2021 HSBC UK | National Road
Championships, however the dates in the Government’s roadmap present some
significant challenges for the current June date and we are continuing to explore all
options. A further update will be provided in due course.
