As the 2017 season continues, Scottish Cycling is delighted to announce the beginning of the 2018 calendar compilation process and to welcome applications for 2018 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 2017. 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 2018 – welcome on board!
