Cycle Sportives To Resume From September

Cycle Sportives To Resume From September

Added by Admin 20/08/2020

We are pleased to announce that British Cycling has given the official guidance for sportive cycling events to go ahead from September. As always we are on hand to provide you with a first class socially distanced timing solution.

Events will initially be capped at 600 riders, while a number of new measures in place to ensure a fun, safe and Covid-secure environment. The full guidance can be found here, with key points including:

  • Participants will not ride in groups of more than six at any point during the event, in line with current Government guidance for group riding.
  • Riders will be released from the start line in waves of no more than six riders, with waves departing at 45-second intervals. Start times will be allocated to ensure that no more than 24 riders are in the vicinity of the start line at any time.
  • Organisers must ensure that event village, feed station and start/finish infrastructure is large enough to accommodate social distancing, and that riders can access their goody bags, medals or refreshments via a ‘self-serve’ system.
  • Events must also ensure that they are aware of and adhere to any relevant local restrictions.

We are available to provide a safe and secure socially distancing timing solution for your sporting events, with rider times uploaded in real time to our rider results page.
