As part of the government’s Red Tape Challenge to reduce regulatory burdens, in 2013 the Department of Transport issued a consultation document seeking views on making the process of permitting cycle races on the highway clearer for organisers, police and the public.
In June 2015 TLI Cycling, along with BC, the LVRC and other cycling bodies responded favourably to the consultation document, and the summary of those responses was published in August 2015 and set out how the Government intended to change the current regulations.
However, since then - silence. We understand that the Welsh Assembly has approved the proposed changes, but we have heard nothing from Westminster regarding the future of racing on English roads.
TLI Cycling asks WHY?
