History

In 1999 UK Sport and British Cycling called for a method of providing mobile safety cover for all road based sporting events (cycle racing, triathlons, marathons, etc).
Former Sussex Police Chief Inspector Andy Relf formed the NEG by putting together a team of civilian motorcycle marshals made up of off-duty police and retired police motorcyclists.
The NEG was approved by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO), RoSPA and the HSE and was accepted by British Cycling (BC) and the British Triathlon Federation (BTF) as the only organisation accredited to ensure the safety of competitors and general public when cycle race events are held on the public highway.

As the NEG expanded over the following years suitably qualified civilian motorcyclists were allowed to join, a structured training and accreditation scheme was put in place and the administration of the NEG was assisted by British Cycling.
In 2005 the Welsh National Escort Group (WNEG) was officially formed as a sister division.
By January 2007 the NEG organisation was re-branded as the NEGGB and the WNEG became the NEG Wales.
Since then the NEGGB has grown to over 100 active members with the NEG Wales operating with around 30 members.
