Club Mark

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.

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 guardians to have confidence in choosing the right cycling club for their young people.


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 with a Cycling Ireland Membership Development Officer -
