Event Sanctioning & Registration

In order to support the growth of cycling events throughout the province, we offer several levels for event sanctioning and registration. These levels are designed to provide options for organizers and riders: from local grassroots series, to mass-participation fondos, all the way to the provincial, national, and international level events, drawing professional cyclists from across the province and around the world.

All organizers interested in hosting a registered or sanctioned Cycling BC event should submit an expression of interest form (see below) for review.

Please contact Cory Ostertag at cory@cyclingbc.net for information about sanctioning/registering your event for 2019.

Sanctioned Events

Cycling BC sanctioning is an official designation approving and licensing cycling events in the province of British Columbia consistent with UCI and Cycling Canada rules and regulations. Organizers who sanction their events with Cycling BC are committed to following the rules and regulations of the sport, to fair play, and to providing a safe environment for racers and spectators alike. As leaders in the community, organizers, clubs, volunteers, and race officials are working together to grow the sport of cycling in our province through sanctioned events.

Registered Events

In order to support further growth of grassroots level racing in the province, organizers may choose to register, rather than sanction, their events. Registered events are run following best practices, and have fewer restrictions placed on categories and equipment regulations, in order to provide a more accessible entry point into racing for those new to the sport.

Benefits of Registering an Event

Inclusion in provincial race calendar
Accessible entry point into the sport for new racers
Increased participation in grassroots events
Safe race environment, run to best practices
Liability insurance
Sport Accident insurance coverage for licensed riders
One-day event insurance available for unlicensed riders
