Scottish Cycling affiliated clubs are the backbone of our sport. They provide the environment and community to welcome cyclists of any ability to find a place that suits them. We understand this and are focussed on providing the best possible service to enable new and seasoned clubs to establish and develop.

Affiliate your Club to Scottish Cycling

Scottish Cycling is delighted to announce that affiliation for 2021 is now open. This year, affiliation will take place via our new Club Management System, ServeSport. 

Affiliate your Club

We know that this has been a challenging year, so we really appreciate your continued commitment and support for cycling.  Cycling is well positioned to make a significant contribution to the 'new normal’ as it emerges, and we look forward to working with you and your club as we consider how we can play a part in this. 

Affiliation Guides

To support your club in completing affiliation this year, we have recorded two videos which provide a step-by-step guide to using the new system. They can be found by clicking the appropriate link below.

Minimum Operating Standards

Alongside this year’s affiliation, Scottish Cycling are introducing Minimum Operating Standards for clubs so that we can work with you to ensure that you have all the correct policies and procedures in place. These standards will lead to a safe and supported environment to protect both your club and your members. 

We recognise that not all clubs operate in the same way, and cater to different audiences, so we have reflected this in the standards.

We are taking a phased approach to the introduction of the standards over the next two years. The standards which are mandatory for affiliation in 2021 are highlighted in yellow in the table on this page here

While the full standards will not be in place until 2022, we would encourage all clubs to begin the process of understanding and implementing the standards in advance of this. This will ensure that your affiliation for 2022 can be processed as quickly as possible.

Setting up a new Club

If you are looking to set up a new club, then please contact clubdevelopment@scottishcycling.org.uk and we will send you a step-by-step start up guide.

It is also good to talk this through, so feel free to arrange a good time to call, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Club Development Framework

We have created a framework to guide the development of our clubs. If you are interested in developing and growing your club, then the framework is a great place to start. It provides a flexible pathway for clubs to progress and is resourced by an extensive collection of templates, guides and supported by staff that will help facilitate the journey.

The framework can be accessed here. If you identify areas where your club might need some help, then please get in touch to talk about the most suitable resources and guides for you. We are currently creating an online platform to facilitate club development; this will be released in 2021 so please check back for information.
