Host an Event

Opportunities to host BUCS Cycling events in the 2021-22 season are now open

Opportunities to host the BUCS Cycling 3-Up Team Time Trial and 10 Mile Time Trial are now open.

Bid Information

The BUCS Cycling programme consists of several events through the season, of these, the below events are now open for potential hosts to bid for:

  • 3-Up Team Time Trial Championships
  • 10 Mile Time Trial Championships

The BUCS Cycling programme is one of the largest at BUCS, drawing in over 1500 entries across the events each year. Athletes competing for podium positions are of a high calibre and the continued growth and popularity of the cycling programme has also resulted in an increase in participation at a lower competitor level.

In addition, with an increased focus from BUCS to ensure our competitive programme is inclusive to all, it is imperative that our chosen partner provides a competition opportunity that is appropriate and enjoyable for all, taking into consideration the infrastructure for people with a disability.

BUCS is seeking partners to manage and deliver the BUCS 3-Up Team Time Trial and BUCS 10 Mile Time Trial. This tender is for the 2021-22 season with an option to renew the partnership upon review.

A preferred entry window for each event has been outlined below. The dates must be compatible with the academic year and the other events within the programme. NB. BUCS Events are typically held on weekends.
