      The following statements have been issued by the BCF in relation to the
      outbreak of Foot and Mouth disease in the UK: "The British Cycling Federation (BCF) has been advised by MAFF (Ministry of
      Agriculture, Fisheries and Food) to ask all cyclists to avoid trips to the
      countryside in any form (on foot, on bike or by car) wherever possible, even
      if the intended journey is restricted to roads. MAFF have pointed out that
      this is a request and that they cannot currently enforce it in any way.
      However, in view of the seriousness of the situation, the British Cycling
      Federation urges all cyclists to follow MAFF's advice. The implications of the current Foot and Mouth outbreak are clearly serious
      for cycling in virtually every form and for cycle sport in particular. With
      the Road and Mountain bike seasons getting underway, we are monitoring the
      situation very carefully and will be in regular touch with MAFF. In the
      meantime, if you need urgent advice from MAFF they can be contacted on a
      special Foot and Mouth helpline, 0845 050 4141."
