Our approach to linking to external websites
The British Cycling website includes links to both internal and external (non-British Cycling) websites. We select links that are editorially relevant to the content they are linking from and are suitable for the likely audience.
These links are included for a number of reasons, including:
For further relevant information or other key source material; for background information; for useful practical information; for entertainment or enjoyment; for further informed comment. We link to sites purely on editorial merit. These will most often be free to access, but users may sometimes be asked to register or subscribe before viewing content.
Links to external websites
External links are selected and reviewed when the page is published. However, the British Cycling is not responsible for the content of external websites. This is because: British Cycling does not produce them or maintain/update them; we cannot change them; they can be changed without our knowledge or agreement.
Some of our external links may be to websites which also offer commercial services, such as online purchases. The inclusion of a link to an external website should not be understood to be an endorsement of that website or the site's owners (or their products/services).
Links to user generated material
Some of the content we link to on both British Cycling sites and external ones is generated by members of the public (messageboards and photo-sharing sites for example). The views expressed are those of the public and unless specifically stated are not those of British Cycling. If you consider this content to be in breach of the house rules as indicated on the website, please alert the moderators or site owners on the sites where the material appears.
Sign posts and content information
Increasingly, we are making more video and audio content available online (via a video or radio player). ny material on the British Cycling must be suitable for a general audience including children.The first click from the British Cycling website should not normally lead straight to a page which includes material which is unsuitable for a general audience.
