British Cycling’s membership has surpassed 125,000 for the first time in the organisation’s history - with 75,000 people signing up since 2012.

A statement from the organisation said: "The milestone is a significant step for British Cycling, cementing its standing as the largest organisation representing cyclists in Britain," a reference to Cycling UK, formerly CTC, which has 67,000 members.

Sir Chris Hoy said: “The fact that 75,000 people have joined British Cycling since 2012 shows that cycling is truly booming.

"I know the inspiration from Rio will compel thousands more to join us. The great thing about cycling is that it offers something for everyone, however you want to ride.”

British Cycling’s membership was just 15,000 in 2005. There has been continuous double-digit growth every year since.


British Cycling’s president Bob Howden, said:

“In reaching 125,000 members, we have once again highlighted our ability to achieve ambitious targets. With our members’ backing, we will continue to strive for further elite success and more people cycling more often as we continue to make cycling appealing to all.
