Cycling Ireland Clubmark Scheme

The Cycling Ireland Clubmark scheme provides accreditation to Cycling Clubs which demonstrate minimum operating standards in the areas of coaching, management, safety, community engagement and safeguarding. Cycling Ireland Clubmark status will help clubs to be recognized as a safe, rewarding and fulfilling place for participants of all ages to enjoy cycling and stay involved throughout their lives.

Cycling Ireland values the essential and significant role that cycling clubs, volunteers, coaches and officials play in the development of the sport, from providing outlets for participation through to competitive opportunities.

Clubmark is about helping cycling clubs work towards and achieve recognition for their hard work and dedication in creating a positive and safe environment that ensures the welfare of members. It also helps parents and carers to have confidence in choosing the right cycling club for their young people.

The Process:

Registration for all Cycling Clubs.
All clubs registering to work towards Clubmark accreditation through the Cycling Ireland Scheme must have a minimum of 20 registered Cycling Ireland members and they must register their interest on the Clubmark website:

When a club who meets this minimum criteria logs onto the Clubmark online system they will be provided with 3 options for the accreditation route that they wish to pursue. These are as follows:

  • Junior Only Club

Minimum criteria are clear and unambiguous on online system.
