  • How does USA Cycling define ‘family’ for the purpose of membership?

    Up to two adults living at the same address and up to five kids 18 and under at that same address. If you have more than five kids, please contact us and we’ll manually add them to your family plan at no additional charge.

  • What’s the difference between a membership and a license?

    All USA Cycling memberships include a Novice race license (at no extra cost) that you’re welcome to use at thousands of events.

    If you race in categories above Novice/Cat 5, you’ll need to upgrade with a $50 Racing Add-On.

    Riders earn their racing category through experience and/or results. This ensures safe and measured racing.
