Frequently Asked Questions
What Is The Difference Between a Membership And a Race License?
There are two ways to get involved with the USA Cycling community, either by becoming a member or becoming a license holder. Our new membership is designed for enthusiasts looking to join the USA Cycling community and enhance their riding, but not intending to compete in traditional USA Cycling sanctioned events. So, if you are only planning to ride in fun rides, on your own or with friends, our membership is the best option for you.
Race licenses are for those who intend to race in USA Cycling sanctioned races. All license holders automatically receive a basic membership with their license.
Do I Have To Buy A License To Participate In A USA Cycling Race?
Not necessarily. USA Cycling sanctions events such as gran fondos and gravel grinders that do not require you to have a license – though you may want one to get event related benefits such as supplemental medical insurance.
USA Cycling sanctions races which do require a racing license, but one-day licenses are available. Beginner level racers can try out racing with a one-day license for $10 per day - just register for the event and add the one-day at checkout. Experienced racers may use one $25 one-day license per year in lieu of an annual membership, but racing more than once in an experienced category requires an annual license.

Do I Have To Create An Account To Buy A Membership?
No, you do not need to create an account to purchase a membership. However, we do encourage you to set one up after you complete your purchase so that you can access your member benefits at any time.
For Race Licenses, however, you will need to create an account to complete your purchase. If you have previously been a member and already have an account, login with the same email address and password that you have been using. If you have any problems with your account or logging in, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I Buy A Membership or License For Someone Else?
Absolutely. If you're buying for someone who may already have an existing USA Cycling account, you can look them up and purchase on their behalf. If you are buying for someone who does not yet have a USA Cycling account, you will create a new profile for that person under your account. We even offer the option to have the receipt sent to you instead of the gift recipient to keep it a surprise.
