Covid Update 23 February 2021

The UK Government announced its roadmap out of lockdown on the 22nd of February. The announcement only applies to England. We will update our guidance for the other nations of the UK following their respective announcements.

  • AUK is able to re-commence the validation of events of up to 300km that take place solely within England from the 29th of March. This applies to calendar and permanent events.
  • Permanent events will initially be limited to 6 participants per event route each day until the 17th May or, if later, the start of Step 3 when it will increase to 30. Permanent events of up to 600km will also be validated from the start of Step 3.
  • Calendar and permanent events of any length will be validated from the 21st of June or, if later, the start of Step 4.
  • AUK organisers should contact their regional delegate for further guidance.

All events will be subject to the guidance and behaviour codes published at Riders will remain responsible for their own compliance with applicable guidance and legislation. In particular, riders should be aware of any restrictions on travel which will apply to travel to and from events other than by bike.
