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!

2018 Calendar Compilation

It’s the time of year (already!) where the Events Team need Event Organisers and Clubs to think about the events they will be promoting next year!

All information on the process will be be communicated, to Club Secretaries, this week by your Regional Development Officer regarding the 2018 process and how you can be involved in compiling the calendar within your region.  An email will also go out to all registered Event Organisers from the Scottish Cycling Events Team at the end of this week.

You can also find a list of dates for your regional calendar meeting here (the locations and times will be confirmed by your RDO, in their email);
