If you see the “Supported by British Cycling” button on an event, you can rest assured that it is insured and backed by the governing body of the sport in Great Britain.
Events will have complied with the Technical Regulations of the relevant branch of the sport, including provision of liability insurance. Organisers will themselves be members of British Cycling and therefore have to comply with the organisation’s rules and regulations, including equity, equality, disciplinary guidelines and safeguarding children requirements.
For event organisers
British Cycling provides a huge range of support for event organisers: this includes a highly cost-effective online entry system, event insurance, calendar co-ordination (so you don’t clash with similar events nearby), access to officials and regional event support staff to help you run your event and a central team of event support staff (t: 0161 274 2020 e: firstname.lastname@example.org) available to offer help and advice whenever you need it.
