As an NPSO organisation, CyclingSA wants to build a strong, financially sustainable federation and a leading partner to stakeholders, inspiring a diverse nation from grassroot levels to ride bicycles, race and be a united community.
This strategic plan of CyclingSA aims to grow the sport of cycling in South Africa by setting out a path for future higher development through a number of regional training centres. It intends to encourage thought leadership and innovation on all levels to unlock the future, not only through participation but also through digital transformation.
