Running an Event

Why USA Cycling?

Thank you for your interest in running a cycling event! We hope that by working together, we can help you create a race or ride that is a successful and positive experience for both you and your customers.

In addition to working with all traditional forms of bike racing – mountain bike, road, cyclocross, track, and BMX events – USA Cycling offers products, support and services for gran fondos, gravel races, fun rides, fixed gear races, hill climbs, training rides, and clinics. By running your event with USA Cycling you have access to a suite of services that will make running your event simple and straightforward.

We provide a robust suite of online event management and marketing tools, including our online registration platform, event calendars and online registration rebates that reward you as more and more riders register for your events. 

In addition to our very affordable pricing model, one of the most unique benefits to using our online registration platform is our Event Cancellation Protection Program.  Every online registration customer receives this valuable benefit at no additional cost.  You’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that your event may qualify for full or partial refunds of registration fees if weather forces you to cancel. 

Chief among the services you’ll receive when you permit your event with USA Cycling is best-in-class, cycling-event specific insurance designed with decades of experience behind it. We’ve done the leg work and have the benefit of years of insuring cycling events packed into the making a suite of insurance products that protect you and your participants. And it’s easy. In most cases, you’ll have your certificates of insurance within 24 hours of completing your permit, which makes your job easy while satisfying your venues, sponsors and municipalities.
