Registering events and rides (detailed guide)

This guide shows you how to setup events and rides on the website.

First, it’s important to know the difference between a ride and an event. The information below will help you differentiate between the two.

  • Ride for regular group rides or socials such as club runs or AGMs. These can be recurring, such as once month on a Saturday or every Wednesday.
  • Event for rides open to both Cycling UK members and the public.

Note: we require events with more than 200 riders to be registered with us for insurance purposes.

  1. Go to your group’s publicity page and select the ‘Node’ tab at the top of the page.
  2. Here you will see events, child pages and posts related to your group.
  3. Click Add New Content.
  4. Click Group node (Event) to add an event.

The following fields are the minimum that we require you to complete for a ride or an event:

  • Event type – select ride, event or one of the other options, such as Bike Week Event.
  • Name – for example, “Romsey Round 75 miles”.
  • Date and time – for example, “02/02/2014” and “09:00”.
  • Type – for example, a “road ride” or “AGM”.
  • Location

There is help text below each field on the event creation and edit pages.
