Volunteering for Cycling UK

Cycling UK is a community of people who believe in cycling. There are many ways for you to play an important part in this community, using your skills to help cyclists all over the UK.

Cycling UK National Office

Our National Office in Guildford, Surrey is a busy environment where Cycling UK's experts work together to promote cycling. By volunteering to support us here, you can be part of a hardworking team at the heart of a growing charity. A range of talents can be helpful, but administration, organisation, writing and communication are the main skills needed to support our Guildford team.

We are currently recruiting for the following volunteer roles at national office:

Cycling UK Tourist Competition

Every year, cycle tourists around the UK compete in the Cycling UK Tourist Competition. This lively and hard-fought contest needs volunteers to co-ordinate the series of events and to collate results.

Cycle mechanics

Cycling UK's volunteer cycle mechanics play an important role at many events - conducting Dr Bike safety checks or supporting mass rides and sporting challenges. If you are a qualified cycle mechanic, then you can be part of the team that keeps participants' bikes safe and functional.


Cycling UK campaigns on a range of issues, fighting to keep cycling safe, accessible and fair. Cycling UK campaigners have won many successes, but fresh challenges appear every week. The Cycling UK campaigns team work at a national level, while our Local Campaigning Network deals with important local issues around the UK.

If you have skills in communication, politics or media, you can help with this important work.

Local rides

Cycling UK rides happen all over the UK. Cycling UK's local groups organise rides for everyone, from first-timers to seasoned veterans. It is Cycling UK volunteers who make all these events possible - volunteers with the skills and passion to help others develop their cycling.

Contact our Cycling UK Local Groups to find who you can help.

Inclusive cycling centres

We believe cycling is for everybody, including people with disabilities. We support a range of inclusive cycling centres around the UK, where trained staff and specialist equipment are on hand to help would-be cyclists who may have physical impairments or learning difficulties.

If you'd like to volunteer to help, find an inclusive cycling centre near you.

Bike recycling centres

Bike recycling is a great way to reduce waste, develop maintenance skills and create bikes for people who might otherwise be unable to afford them. If you have skills in maintenance or administration, why not share them?

Find your nearest bike recycling centre to learn more.

Ride marshals

Cycling UK supports high-profile events like RideLondon. Marshalling at sportives and other gatherings like these is an important way to ensure their success and safety, while being part of the excitement of mass cycling.
