In 2023, Glasgow and Scotland are hosting the first ever UCI Cycling World Championships, and we want you to join us in following the action and celebrating the chance to combine our love of Scotland and cycling!

From 3-13 August 2023, 13 separate UCI World Championships are scheduled with more than 2600 athletes competing to win over 200 rainbow jerseys. The world's greatest riders will get together in Glasgow and across Scotland to compete at the highest level, make history, and show the world the power of the bike.

Many of the competitions will be taking place in venues across Glasgow, and you can also find further events across Scotland: Fort William, Edinburgh, Loch Lomond and Glentress Forest will all play host to cyclists and spectators this summer.
