2023 Scottish Cycling Conference & Awards

2023 Scottish Cycling Conference & Awards


We look forward to welcoming you to Crieff Hydro in picturesque Perthshire for the 2023 Scottish Cycling Conference and Awards.

Following last year’s success, our conference, awards and AGM will be combined to create an unforgettable day as we celebrate all things cycling.

Conference and AGM

After arrivals and coffee, the conference will get underway just before am. We’ll kick start the day by taking a look back at 2023 in cycling and reflect on the 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships.

As well as keynotes speakers, there will be a number of breakout sessions, with workshops tailored to your interest areas, from Mental Health to managing social media; the preliminary conference programme can be found in the table below.

The Scottish Cycling AGM will also take place just before lunch, with key standing items distributed to clubs in the weeks’ prior, as is always the case. Our President Kathy Gilchrist will host the meeting and share her reflections on 2023.
