Sky and British Cycling are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. We actively work to ensure that our website is accessible and usable by people of all abilities.

Accessibility guidelines

We are aware that our website may not be accessible throughout. Our aim is to ensure that all pages of this website conform to level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0). These guidelines are the internationally recognised benchmark for building accessible websites.

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines also makes web content more user friendly for all people.

  • 1.1.1 Non-text Content

Where possible we are working with these parties to resolve any outstanding non-conformances.
