Representing all professional British and Irish road cyclists at the UCI World Tour and Pro Continental level.
The establishment of BIPCA began in January 2016, when the 34 British and Irish professional riders moved to vote for an individual to represent their interests at the Cyclistes Professionnels Associes.
The CPA, formed in 1999 is an association of national athletes' unions, representing the entire professional peloton, at the highest level of the sport.
Following the initial election of a single representative, the British and Irish group has now officially formed as its own national association, BIPCA.
BIPCA is currently a vehicle through which we can take part, and contribute to the CPA, in order to progress and improve our sport.
As we move forward, our aim is to build our association into a full service athletes union for all male and female professional road cyclists within Great Britain and Ireland.
