In order to support further growth of grassroots level racing in the province, organizers may choose to register, rather than sanction, their events.
In order to provide a more accessible entry point into racing for those new to the sport, registered events are run following best practices guidelines. Registered events have fewer restrictions placed on categories and equipment regulations, differing from sanctioned events, in which organizers and riders are required to follow Cycling Canada/UCI regulations. Riders and organizers are covered under Cycling BC’s insurance policies.
There are three types of registered events: Club Activities, Grassroots Events, and Mass Participation.
