Frequently Asked Questions
I'm not a member at the moment, but want to take part in a sportive/race at the weekend.
A If you want to process a licence quickly, the only way to do this is by applying online. Once you pay online your licence number appears on your profile and you are considered insured and covered for participation in events and training from that point on. You should print this screen and present it to the race organiser on the day. You will also receive an email when you pay that serves as a temporary licence until your actual licence arrives in the post which could also be presented to the event organiser.
If you are joining a club, you should contact your club secretary to let them know that you are waiting their approval so that you can finalise your membership. Memberships where you are applying to join as part of a club can only be processed with the approval of the club secretary. This can take up to 72 hours.
Please note that the Cycling Ireland office hours are Monday to Friday 09.00-17.00. If you apply after hours, memberships will not be processed until the following working day. This would mean that if you wanted to cycle at the weekend, and started the application process at 22.00 on the Friday evening, your membership will not be processed until the Monday (or Tuesday if it's a bank holiday in the Republic of Ireland) and you would not be able to ride at the weekend. Please note that club secretaries have up to 72 hours to approve members so you should factor this in when applying for membership. Cycling Ireland cannot approve memberships without explicit permission from the club secretary.
I have got enough points to have my licence upgraded – what is the process for this?
After each race the results are submitted to Cycling Ireland within 7 days of the event.
Once these are submitted the grading officer will review the results and award points to
those who got placed. You will then be immediately upgraded on the system and a new
licence and race numbers will be issued automatically within 10 working days. If you
wish to race at the higher grade before you receive your new numbers please log in
to your account, print out a copy of your member profile page
(which will display your new licence number) and bring this with you on the day of race.
You will then be given temporary numbers for the day.
Once you have received your new card and numbers please return the
old ones to Cycling Ireland.
I have not received my licence or race numbers yet - can I still race?
A As soon as you have registered and paid you will receive a licence number. You are then insured and can enter events. If you have not received your card or race numbers you can download a PDF copy of your licence from the "My Licence" tile of your online account. You can show this at sign on for events and will be issued with temporary numbers for the day. You do not need to purchase a one day licence if you have already paid for annual membership.
- q How to Transfer Club
As club secretary how do I view members and manage them?
A Three club officials in every club have access to all the members in their club. When that official logs into their profile (with their email address and password in the log in section) they can add, renew and edit members. They can also renew the club membership here.
To view the club members go to "members" in the black tab, here you can view, edit, renew and manage your members. Under "profile" and "club management" you can renew your club affiliation.
I am an existing member, but cannot log in
A The most common reason for an existing member having trouble logging in is that we do not have a registered email address for them or the email address noted in your profile is incorrect. In this instance you must contact your club secretary to update your email and reset your password.
It is also possible you have a duplicate profile on our system. As your email is one of the unique identifiers for login purposes, if another profile is using the same email address it will cause login difficulties
I cannot log into the new system
A Here are the common reasons why you might not be able to log in:
You are already registered. If you have been a member with CI before the new system was introduced, you can still log in with your old email address, however you must request a new password.
If you are having any other issues, see our help page here
What is my "username" when I try to log in?
A Your username is the email address you used to register with
I have requested a password reset but I have not received it
A Check your spam folders. Be sure that you are using the right e-mail address. If you have still not received your password please email us using the Contact Us form
