British Cycling - Who we are

Home » About us » Who we are

British Cycling is one of the world’s leading national governing bodies thanks to our ability to harness mass participation from international success.

The organisation oversees all forms of cycling in Britain. Whether you are a competitor in one of the six sporting disciplines, (BMX, mountain bike, cyclo-cross, road, track and cycle speedway) a personal challenge rider, a commuter or a leisurely weekend rider, we are committed to helping you enjoy cycling.

British Cycling has set the standard by which elite sporting success in this country is measured with unparalleled Olympic, Paralympic and major championships success, cementing our status as one of the strongest nations in competitive cycling.

We administer the sporting calendars in all domestic cycle sport and oversee cycling’s development across all disciplines, helping to ensure those who want to race can do so in a competitive and compelling environment.

Away from competition, we continue to encourage millions of people to ride their bikes throughour recreational programmes, all suited to meet an individual’s preferred form of cycling. We are also working hard to inspire the next generation of cyclists through our work with schools and community clubs to ensure that more young people are taking up the sport than ever before.

All of this is against a backdrop of increased political influence as we look to represent our 166,000 -strong membership. We lobby local and national government to make a sustained and resolute commitment to improving conditions for cyclists in order to ensure that Britain becomes a true cycling nation.
