At British Cycling, we are always looking for volunteers from all backgrounds to support the programmes and activities available across the nation, therefore if you have a skill you want to share, a desire to meet new people or a passion to get more involved in cycling then there’s a volunteering role for you.
Whether you can give up an hour or 100 hours, it all contributes to inspiring more people to get out on their bike, no matter the activity.
Every person's motivation to volunteer is different but whatever your reasons, our number one priority is to make sure that you have a great experience and it in return, we hope that you will be able to:
- make a difference
- do something you enjoy
- gain a lot of satisfaction from helping others
- meet new people
- develop existing and new skills
- give something back to cycling
- benefit your health
- meet new people or get involved by volunteering with a friend or partner
So how can I get involved?
Coaching is at the heart of the sport at every level whether teaching basic bike handling skills in a club through to training athletes for the Olympic Games.
There are thousands of cycling events every year, from local races to National Championships. Volunteer roles at events can range from providing refreshments or manning sign on, to being an appointed official to ensure the events are safe, fair and most importantly fun, or getting stuck into organising an event yourself to create opportunities for riders to participate in your local area.
Cycling clubs are run by dedicated volunteers who work hard behind the scenes to make the club work, with a number of different volunteering opportunities to meet a range of skills why not get involved.
If you are interested in leading rides and inspiring more people to take part in cycling or helping out at pop up events around the country then our recreation programmes are a great way to make a difference.
