Join a winning team
There’s a cycling revolution going on in the UK at all levels from our top professionals in the GB Team, to grass roots cyclists who are just starting out.
In fact, there are now 40,000 members double the amount in 2007. This milestone was reached one day after Mark Cavendish was crowned World Road Racing Champion.
In the words of Sir Chris Hoy MBE (multiple World & Olympic champion):
“With your help British Cycling is providing support to all cyclists, however they ride. That could mean building new cycling facilities, putting on more cycling events or looking after the day to day needs of members who ride to work, ride to race, or just ride for the fun of it. Being a member of British Cycling makes you one of the team!”
