Scottish Cycling Event Levy Cost & Breakdown

Scottish Cycling Event Levy Cost & Breakdown

Home » About us

To allow us to provide the ongoing support of event delivery in Scotland, and to ensure that event organisers and riders are fully insured while racing, Scottish Cycling have worked with British Cycling to develop a payment structure to suit all categories of event.

There is a rider levy (per rider/per day of racing) payable after the event has taken place. The amount each rider pays depends on the category of the race and is usually included as part of the entry fee.

The levy fees in Scotland are slightly different to those in England and Wales, please see below:
