British Cycling is the National Governing Body for cycling in Great Britain, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.  It has the ambition of increasing membership to 100,000 in 2013, alongside broader goals of inspiring participation in cycling as sport, recreation and sustainable transport through achieving worldwide success in cycle sport.

British Cycling's Cycle Sport staff underpin and co-ordinate the organisation of over 3000 sporting and recreational cycling events every year. Across six disciplines of cycle sport, a structured calendar of events provides a smooth pathway from grass-roots to elite level competition.

British Cycling's Coaching and Education department supports a network of qualified coaches through a range of coaching qualifications and courses. These coaches play a vital role in the development of cycling from club level right through to the GB Cycling Team.

British Cycling membership provides support and benefits to all levels of cyclists. Members enjoy discounts from top cycle retailers plus legal support and insurance. In addition, by joining British Cycling, you are actively supporting all the work we do, helping us to invest in cycling facilities, supporting the future of on and off road cycling.

  • Regional Board

    British Cycling's North East Region is governed by the Regional Board, which comprises a number of volunteers.  The board meet approximately every 6-8 weeks, meetings take place mid week usually in the middle of the region around the Durham area.

  • Communications Support Workgroup
  • Events Support Workgroup
  • Youth and Junior Development Workgroup
  • Regional Byelaws

    The North East Region is in the process of adopting a set of regional byelaws, which will be published here once they have been agreed.

  • AGMs

    The Regional Board hold its Annual General Meeting in September. 

    The AGM enables Regional officials to be elected, as well as local Propositions for the November National Council meeting to be formally constructed. Regional AGM’s also provide an opportunity for each affiliated club to comment upon local initiatives, to comment upon the local competition programme, or to ask about the latest development of Regional cycling facilities.

    Details of each AGM are primarily sent to the secretaries of affiliated clubs for onward circulation within that club.  We want as many clubs as possible to attend their Regional AGM. The Regional AGM’s are open to all local members of the British Cycling Federation, though the number of votes for each club are determined by your BC membership numbers as follows: up to 9 members = 1 delegate, 10 to 24 = 2 delegates, 25-39 = 3 delegates, 40-54 = 4 delegates, 55+ = 5 delegates.
