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.
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 Region currently has over 13,000 members from a figure of over 160,000 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.
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 by clicking here.
