Membership for  entering a race

For most bike races and competitive events, you will need a race licence. To obtain a race licence, you must join British Cycling as a Member or Premium Member.

Both of these memberships come with a free provisional licence and full race licences are available as an optional extra during sign up. Full race licences are required for most road races, and to earn points in any national or regional rankings.
