The 2016 European Road Cycling Championships was the 22nd running of the European Road Cycling Championships, that took place over 14–18 September 2016 in Plumelec, France. The event consisted of a total of 5 road races and 5 time trials, regulated by the Union Européenne de Cyclisme (UEC). The 2016 championships were the first to be run with elite events for riders over 23 years of age, although the women's under-23 events were combined with the women's elite events.

Relocation of the championships[edit]

Initially the championships were planned to be held in Nice, France.[1] However, on 5 August, three weeks after the Bastille Day terrorist attack in Nice, mayor Philippe Pradal [fr] cancelled their hosting of the event, stating that the championships would require a large police presence which had not yet been guaranteed to him. The Union Européenne de Cyclisme (UEC) further explained that the "huge security presence" could not be guaranteed in Nice due to "the significant constraints".[2]

The European Cycling Union received several new applications: from Yorkshire in the United Kingdom, Trentino and the Marche region in Italy and the French application of the Plumelec-Morbihan department within the French Brittany region. On 13 August, it was announced that the championships would be held in Plumelec-Morbihan.[3]
