Scottish Cycling is fully committed to ensuring that all cyclists, parents, coaches and officials have only positive experiences when participating in the sport.

Scottish Cycling, as part of British Cycling, has adopted the Policy and Procedures for the protection of Children and Vulnerable adults in cycling.

We have been working with Children 1st, Sportscotland and Respect Me to ensure that our child protection procedures and policies reflect current best practice following a Scottish Cycling Safeguarding Review in November 2015.

No matter what role you play in supporting the sport of cycling in Scotland it is important to familiarise yourself with the following key documents: -
