How to become a cycling volunteer

If you like the idea of helping out within the world of cycling, there are three main areas you can give your time to – coaching, officiating and club management.

Coaching is key to cycling performance at every level, from teaching basic bike handling skills in a school or club to training athletes for elite competitions.

British Cycling’s coaching courses give you the chance to coach at the level and in the discipline you want.

Find out more about the coaching awards, including the discipline-specific Level 2 and Level 3 awards.


With thousands of cycling events every year and an ever increasing appetite to get riding, officials are needed more than ever to make sure they are safe and fun.

British Cycling has information of training courses, whether you want to become a commissaire and officiate at regional or national events, or help out at your local Go Ride racing event.

For more information about local opportunities, contact your Regional Events Officer.

Club management

If the workings of a cycling club, its activities and its different volunteers is what gets you interested, then club management may be for you.
