From the daily commute to the finish line, we are working to improve cycling for every rider. Find out more about our work across the breadth of cycle sport, recreational and utility cycling. No matter how you ride, we are working hard for you.
Commuters: British Cycling and Sky aim to get 1 million more people cycling by 2013 and getting commuters out of their cars and onto two wheels is a big part of that ambition. We know that commuting by bike is great for our bodies, our cities and our planet, but what is British Cycling doing for bike commuters?
Track Riders: Inspired by the success of the GB Cycling Team's Track riders, Track Racing is currently more popular than ever. Based on a strong grass-roots structure, with a growing number of new and refurbished facilities, Track Racing is integral to all of British Cycling's major events, development and club programmes.
Young Riders: With clubs, coaching, events, newsletters, websites and events, British Cycling provides young cyclists with a fantastic, fun range of cycling opportunities. Find out more about Go-Ride, Go-Ride Racing, Sky Ride and The Hub, British Cycling's membership package, especially tailored for young riders.
Beginners: At British Cycling, we never forget what it's like to ride a bike for the first time. Cycling opens up a new world of possibilities, whether that's getting fit, getting to work on time or taking your first steps into sport. We've got a whole range of ways to help you get into cycling and get the most out of your new adventures on two wheels.
Road Racing: With around 3,500 races across nearly 900 events for all abilities, new circuits, our ‘Keep Cycle Racing on the Roads' campaign and the continued success of the GB Team, British Cycling is continually working to support the road racing community.
Mountain Biking: An award-winning cross country World Cup event and track open to the public 365 days a year, medals at World and European Championships, industry-leading mountain bike coaching and leadership courses, financial support of the British race Series', a preferential partnership with Forestry Commission England and a move to open sections of bridleways for racing are just a few examples.
Cyclo-Cross: Nearly doubling in participation since the Beijing Olympics and the starting point for World and Olympic Champions thanks to Go-Ride Racing - British Cycling's commitment and ongoing development of cyclo-cross has impacted the landscape of all cycling disciplines.
Women: Tracy Moseley, Victoria Pendleton, Shanaze Reade, Emma Pooley, Manon Carpenter, Nicole Cooke, Annie Last, Helen Wyman, Lizzie Armitstead, Lucy Garner, Laura Trott... it’s clear that British women are spoilt for choice in terms of cycling role models. However, in terms of participation, there’s a big gender gap to close. From Breeze rides to podium performers we look at how British Cycling is closing the cycling gap.
Facilities: Forming part of British Cycling’s Whole Sport Plan, expanding the nationwide network of traffic free cycling facilities will continue to be a key goal for the organisation in 2012 and beyond – building on the range of amenities opened across all cycling disciplines in 2011.
