Membership licence requirements

  • All memberships are based on a calendar-year cycle ending December 31.
  • All members must reside in British Columbia for 6+ months of the calendar year in order to be eligible for a licence.
  • All members must be covered under the BC Medical Services Plan (MSP).
  • UCI Race licence holders must upload a passport-style photo during registration. UCI licences are not issued without a suitable photo. If you previously registered without a photo, click here to upload your photo.
  • All members must sign Cycling BC’s liability waiver and code of conduct during registration. For riders under 19 years of age, a parent/guardian must sign the electronic waiver.
  • All members must choose a primary discipline (BMX- Bicycle Moto Cross | CX- Cyclo-Cross | DH- Downhill | XC- Cross-Country | Road | Track) and select all other disciplines in which they plan to race.
  • All members who wish to race in BC and accumulate upgrade points should purchase the Provincial Race licence.
  • All members who wish to compete outside British Columbia or at a UCI event must hold a UCI Race or UCI Para license.
  • Important note for all UCI Athletes over 35 years old: A master athlete may not change their UCI category indicated on their license at any point during the year. However, for non-UCI events, Cycling BC guidelines allow masters riders to choose what category they wish to compete in.
  • UCI licence ability categories are NOT CONFIRMED unless the licence status is listed as ‘Issued’
  • Verify the membership or licence status using the Cycling BC Member Lookup Tool or Accreditation Registry.

Additional information

* Cycling BC “CYCLING FOR ALL” membership holders may enter in open, novice, or category 5 events if the categories are offered. However, a PROVINCIAL RACE license is required to accumulate upgrade points and advance to Category 4.

** National Events often have dual sanctions. Cycling Canada/UCI administers Championship and Cup categories, and participants require a UCI race licence. Cycling BC administers non-championship (“sport” or “challenge”) categories, and Provincial Race Licences are accepted. Refer to each event’s technical guide for event-specific licence requirements before registering.

*** Members must hold the appropriate credentials to receive a UCI Technical licence.

**** Anyone purchasing a technical licence in addition to a BC or UCI licence will only pay one licence fee, whichever is greater.
