2021 British Cycling Technical Regulations
Process for amending the Technical Regulations
The following process has been created for updating the Technical Regulations going forward:
- Complete the Member Survey using the link below or email your suggestion to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please specify a regulation number wherever possible to assist us in reviewing your suggestion.
- Commission meetings shall take place from March onwards – they will be asked to review proposed changes to Technical Regulations (including Scottish and Welsh commissions); this will be a standing item on their agendas.
- The Member Survey will be publicised annually in April/May.
- We shall be drafting updates to the Technical Regulations, ready for next Commission meetings in September.
- Technical Commission (or Board, if necessary) to meet in December and approve any changes.
- Handbook goes to publishers in December.
Please note that the 2020 Regulations will continue to be adhered to until 28 February 2021.
