Welcome to British Cycling Yorkshire

British Cycling Yorkshire Region is an administrative arm of the National Governing Body for Cycle Sport in Great Britain. Its territory covers Yorkshire from a line drawn westwards from Whitby in the North down to areas covered by Sheffield postcodes in the South.

Yorkshire is home to many of Britain’s best riders. Reigning World, Commonwealth and National road race champion, Lizzie Armistead (now Deignan), Olympic Gold Medallist, Ed Clancy, 2009 UCI Downhill World Champion Steve Peat, Ineos World Tour rider Ben Swift, Jacob Scott, Scott Thwaites, Russell Downing, Dean Downing, Graham Briggs and former National Road Race Champion, Adam Blythe are just some of our Yorkshire talent. More recently, Yorkshire rider Tom Pidcock was crowned UCI World U23 Cyclosross Champion in 2017, UCI World U19 Time Trial Champion and European U18 Cyclocross Champion in 2018. Connor Swift became National Road Champion in 2018 and went on to join Pro Continental team Arkéa–Samsic. 2019 saw Ben Swift crowned National Road Race Champion and Joey Walker topped off a great 2019 for the Yorkshire region when was crowned National Circuit Champion at Rochester.

The Yorkshire Region is one of 10 English Regions formed by British Cycling in 2001 when the then 26 Divisions were re-structured. Yorkshire was formed from the old West Yorkshire, the East Riding and a significant proportion of the North Midlands Divisions.

The Yorkshire Region currently has over 13,000 members from a figure of over 175,000 covering the other Regions, Scotland and Wales.

British Cycling’s Regions function as Event regulators and as developers of the sport. Yorkshire Region has a particularly strong focus on development, with a dedicated Event’s Group driving this forward. With a structured approach we aim to develop opportunities in accordance with British Cycling’s Equality Policy as well as catering for each discipline and ability grouping.

As we are home to many of Britain’s top riders in all disciplines of the sport we are also proud of the immense contribution made by our volunteers who are vital to keeping our wheels turning. Of course the wheels can always move faster with more effort and more volunteers will help us to achieve that, if you want to become a part of our cycling success then please contact our Secretary Peter Root.

Please take a look at the news section as this is where all the latest developments within Yorkshire are published. If you would like your event covering or results posting, please contact us and we will help you.
