For your convenience, Cycling South Africa has developed a brand new membership platform. The new process is far simpler and can either be accessed through your desktop (at https://cyclingsa-events.co.za/app/) or via the mobile APP (currently available in the Google Play Store for Android devices, and soon to be released in the Apple App Store).

The process is far easier and simpler to use. Please take two minutes to confirm that your details are indeed correct. To find out more information about membership and our amazing membership benefits, keep reading this page.

You can renew your membership on a 12 monthly cycle. Full Racing Licences (the additional R400 option), remain a January-to-December period to comply with UCI regulations. The online system has had some further enhancements made, in that you can use your savings card, debit card or credit card to process the online payment.

Licence structure explained

Full Racing License

This category of license is for riders from the age of 17-years-old who wish to be eligible for provincial and national selection and respective colours award. The bearer of a full license is entitled to partake in national championship or series race and be seeded accordingly. Those of who race in the UCI categories (Junior, U23 and Elite) earn UCI points, which will assist them in being seeded at future UCI category events, World Cups and Championships. The cost of a full racing license is R400 per year, and the applicant has to be member of an affiliated club, as well as be a registered member of Cycling SA. These MUST be done simultaneously for a Full Racing License to be valid. Full Racing Licenses are only valid from 1 January to 31 December each year.

Membership

As from 1 November 2016, a membership of Cycling SA costs R200 per year. A membership holder is entitled to enter any event, irrespective of discipline, without having to purchase a day license. A member is allowed to participate in a national series event, but will not be eligible for national or provincial selection. A membership of Cycling SA is the most basic form of license and is an agreement of the rider to abide by the rules of the event in which they participate.

Day License

The Day-license is designed to allow the absolute newcomers of the sport to participate within the rules and regulations of the sport. These participants, who do not hold a full license or membership, need to purchase a day license. By purchasing a day license the rider agrees to participate in the event and abide with the rules of the event and those of Cycling SA for that day. A day license costs R45 and is only valid for one day.

Technical Official License

The cost of a license for Technical Officials - UCI Commissaire, National Commissaire, Judge & Time Keeper - is R50 per year.

Provincial levy

Some provinces charge an additional levy to assist with the development and running of the provincial structures. These levies vary from province to province. Your province, which is made up of the clubs, will provide the information as to what and how these funds are utilised within your province, as these are determined by the input from clubs at regional and provincial meetings.

Provincial Levies for 2016:

  • Central Gauteng Affiliation Fee R75 (Compulsory if you live in Central Gauteng)
  • Eastern Cape Affiliation Fee R50 (Compulsory if you live in Eastern Cape)
