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.

Sanctioned Events

Cycling BC sanctioning is an official designation approving and licensing cycling events in the province of British Columbia. 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.

Benefits of sanctioning

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.

Increased participation in grassroots events
Safe race environment, run to best practices
Liability insurance
