British Cycling is addressing the directive not to ride a bike during the hours of the Queen’s funeral

The advice was shared nationwide for cyclists, although the governing body has now removed the guidance after a backlash.

British Cycling warned: “As a mark of respect to Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth the second, British Cycling’s guidance is that no formal domestic activities should take place on the day of the State Funeral, Monday 19 September. This includes cycling events, club rides, coaching and community programs (e.g. Breeze rides).

“British Cycling strongly recommends that anyone cycling on the day of the state funeral do so outside of the times of the funeral service and associated processions, which will be confirmed later this week. As soon as they are published, we will share the details of the timings on this page. As the day of the state funeral has been set as a national bank holiday, British Cycling, like many other employers, will close for the day.”

One social media user replied: “Dear British cycling. no That’s all.”

Another added: “I saw that and thought, oh, they must only be meant in the actual area of ​​the procession.” No, British Cycling actually said they don’t think anyone should be cycling anywhere during the funeral . Pathetic.”

The guide has since changed in an update on British Cycling’s website.

The new guidance reads: “The date and time of the state funeral will be confirmed in due course. British Cycling will provide further information on the impact on events and activities scheduled to take place on the day once these details are released.” British Cycling is addressing the directive not to ride a bike during the hours of the Queen’s funeral
