British Cycling Group Bans Transgender Males From Women’s Competitions

British Cycling, the regulatory body responsible for overseeing cycling in the UK, has announced its decision to prohibit biological males from participating in women’s cycling competitions. The new policy will restrict the events exclusively to biological females.

In the past, British Cycling had permitted “transgender” males who identified as women to compete in women’s events under specific conditions. However, this policy was put on hold pending further investigation last year.

The regulatory body’s recent announcement signifies a shift in its approach, as it now aims to ensure that only biological females are eligible to participate in women’s cycling competitions.
