Marketing materials

Logos and branding

We are very proud of our new branding as Cycling UK. All our Member Groups and Affiliate Groups are welcome to use our new logos to customise their websites, social media and kit to help spread the word about our new identity.  All we ask is that you respect our brand guidelines and do not alter or stretch the logo in anyway.

Welsh bilingual logos are available on request.

The brand guidelines also set out which fonts to use: Karla Regular, which can be downloaded free from Google, and ITC Franklin Gothic BT Book, which is available in Word. (Note The FF Cocon Pro bold font specified in the guidelines is not currently available.)

Posters

Find below an editable PDF poster you can download and customise with your own group's details: this could be displayed in local bike shops, coffee shops or on community notice boards to let everyone know about any events or rides you've got planned.

The poster 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 size.

Postcards and business cards

We're happy to supply a range of other marketing materials such as:

  • group postcards, which outline all the benefits of Cycling UK membership and have a box for your own group's details.
  • group cycling business cards, which are easy to carry with you on a ride and are blank on the reverse, so you can put your own details on them.
  • Cycling UK Membership flyers - so you can promote your club and the charity to attract new members.

Banners, T-shirts and leaflet holders

We also supply:

  • a Cycling UK banner - great for use at events!
  • A 4-pack of Cycling UK branded navy T-shirts in a range of different sizes
  • postcard and leaflet holders - non-branded

To order a marketing pack, please complete and send us a Marketing Materials Pack Order form (below).  

We also have a limited supply of items such as teardrop flags/banners and tablecloths. While we cannot guarantee availability, if you wish to use them to promote your events they may also be requested

As a charity ourselves, Cycling UK is unfortunately not able to promote non-Cycling UK events or rides for free. However, we can help you to reach our 65,000+ members and supporters with reasonably priced adverts in Cycle magazine, CycleClips weekly e-newsletter or on our website.
