Support for cycling groups

Touring cyclist riding up a hill
Cycling UK supports hundreds of local cycling groups and clubs across the UK
What do you do if new riders turn up? How do you record a risk assessment? What is the situation if a young person turns up to do a ride? All these questions can be answered by consulting Cycling UK's resources for ride and event organisers.

In this section, you will find guidance Cycling UK issues to ride and event organisers in order to comply with our insurance requirements.

Charity rides and sportives - organising and taking part in one

Charity rides are increasingly popular. Cycling UK has a useful guide to how to prepare for your first charity ride. We also have comprehensive hints and tips for organisers of charity rides and sportives.


For information on protecting event organisers, ride leaders and individual riders against claims made against them, see our section on insurance.

Promotion and logos

We have recently produced a Social Media Toolkit for cycling groups, in conjunction with Allianz Insurance. It can be found below. We are also making available a set of logos for our new brand, Cycling UK. Note that the two fonts that you can use currently are Karla Regular, which can be downloaded free from Google, and ITC Franklin Gothic BT Book, which is available in Word. The FF Cocon Pro bold font is not currently available due to technical issues. We will let everyone know when it is.

Feel free to use them in your materials and local web sites etc but bear in mind the restrictions on use set out in the Cycling UK Brand Kit, also below.

Below is a poster template you can use to promote your Member Group. It contains an editable box at the bottom, in which you can use to insert your own wording and then print off your own printer or locally in colour. Just save the poster first, then edit to suit your own group by clicking in the box and typing in your own wording. It is A3 size, but can be printed at A3 or A4 just as well.
