Tourist Competition events in 2018

Welcome to the home of the Cycling UK Tourist Competition!

For more than 30 years Cycling UK members have been touring the country and competing against fellow members for the highest number of points in organised rides.

We would like to encourage more members to cycle more often by participating in multiple events and have fun, achieve and get fit. As seen in our list of events above there are family events, map-reading, treasure hunts, freewheeling, hillclimbs, tours  and more to choose from. Last year, we had over 500 people take part in 90 Tourist Competition events put on by various Member Groups all over the country.

Please see the Tourist Competition results and awards for 2017 below. 

Congratulations to all participants, and thank you also to all organisers for the work you've put in to the rides over the last year. 

How to Register for the 2018 Tourist Competition

Due to feedback from last year, there have been a couple of changes made to the registration process.

To take part in the Tourist Competition, you will need to register as an individual participant, the deadline has now been extended to midnight on 31 October 2018. 

If you would prefer to register for the Competition using snail mail or email, please give us a call or email us using the contact details below. Because of this update to the Tourist Competition rules, the only information you will need to give any ride organiser is your name and membership number. Easy!

Event organisers; you now have a dedicated Tourist Competition tick box to fill in when registering your event, or via your group publicity page. If you would prefer to register your event via email, please use the 2018 Registration Form below and send it to: competitions@cyclinguk.org. Don't forget to send in your results, please use the 2018 Results Template below and email it to the email address above.  

The rules for the 2018 points system has also been given a minor change - every ride except Category E rides are ten points, no matter how many an individual has participated in. Please refer to the full 2018 Tourist Competition Rules below for more information.

Mille Miglia

For over ten years, Tourist Competition participants could also gain awards in an additional element of the Cycling UK Tourist Competition; the Mille Miglia. Each rider's distance cycled in Tourist Competitions over the year was totted up, and FREE Gold, Silver and Bronze certificates were awarded according to total distance ridden.

Please find below the Results for the 2017 Mille Miglia.

Because of the waning popularity of this element of the Competition, the Mille Miglia will be taking a break for the 2018 season. We will be reviewing all our competitions and rides throughout the year - so if you would like this element to make a return, please let us know.
