As the 2018 season continues, Scottish Cycling is delighted to announce the beginning of the 2019 calendar compilation process and now welcomes applications for 2019 Scottish National Championship and Series events.
Scottish Cycling would like to extend thanks and appreciation to the Event Organisers and Clubs that promoted, or are still to promote, a Scottish Cycling event in 2018. After inclement weather causing a false start to the year, it’s been an unusual season so far! Your perseverance to continue to deliver quality events despite this is truly appreciated. As the popularity of cycling continues to grow, participation in Scottish Cycling events continues to rise, thanks in no small part to the hard work of Event Organisers and Club volunteers. If you are a new Event Organiser for 2019 – welcome on board!
