What's the difference between a membership and a race license?
A USA Cycling Membership gives riders access to deals, perks, and discounts while helping to fund the sport of cycling in America.
A Race License is for riders that compete in categorized events and ensures safe and measured racing.
The $50 Member-level includes (2) One Day Licenses to get riders involved in local events but if you race in categories above Novice/Cat 5 regularly, you’ll need to upgrade to the $100 Racer Membership.
Once you’ve signed up for your membership, you’ll have a member account where you can view and update your personal information, change your subscriptions, manage your race license, and access your member benefits. You’ll see a page dedicated to partner discounts on products and services and partner events that provide USA Cycling member benefits. This page will connect you to any of our partners to tap into your benefits.
USA Cycling members are rewarded with deals on cycling products, services, legal support, and free coaching consultations. Also included are discounts from partner brands like Tissot, Spot Insurance, Hyperice, TrainingPeaks, Athletic Greens, VeloNews, Cuore of Switzerland, Levi's, ExpertVoice, Skratch Labs, and more.
Even if your summer doesn't revolve around racing, we want every rider to get on as many start lines as possible! That is why you get access to a Novice Race License to ride in sanctioned events in entry level categories with your USA Cycling Membership.
Passionate riders from around the country are what make cycling special. Our community of riders fund the development programs, grassroots participation efforts and world class athlete performances essential to the growth of cycling in America with their membership.
Not only is every rider covered with best-in-class event insurance at USA Cycling permitted events, but every member and supporter of USA Cycling automatically qualifies for $40/year rider accident insurance from Spot Insurance ($300 value). Spot provides on-the-bike injury coverage up to $25,000. Plus, riders get deals from other companies that prioritize safety like a free consultation from Bike Law and $15 tests from USA Concussion Testing.
As a USA Cycling Member, you are granted exclusive event experiences like discounts on entry fees, preferred start spots, beer tents, and more!
More than a Membership
We champion rider programs for cyclists of all ages, skill levels, and backgrounds by sharing expertise early and often to create lifelong riders. We want more people on bikes more often, and you help that happen.
We champion participation in grassroots cycling by promoting, organizing and subsidizing the largest network of races and rides in the country, with a goal of making the sport more accessible in the United States.
We champion the world class performances of over 150 Olympic, world, and national teams' athletes. From coaching and training to travel and equipment, we invest the money, time and effort necessary to cross the finish line first.
Membership in USA Cycling gets you access to America's largest cycling club and along with that discounts on cycling products and services that provide value far greater than the $50 annual fee. For just $100 (or $50 if upgrading from only a membership), a race licenses gets you all the perks and advantages of membership with the added value of access to over 2,500 sanctioned competitive events every year.
Junior Memberships and Race Licenses are both completely FREE. USA Cycling believes the best way to fall in love with the sport is to ride early and often and we want it to be as easy as possible for young riders to get involved and get riding.
