British Cycling has had its best month for membership growth in the organisation's history, adding over 2,400 new members in July and bringing its total membership to over 51,000, Chief Executive Ian Drake announced today. Since Bradley Wiggins crossed the finishing line on the Champs Elysees on 22 July over 1,000 more cyclists have signed up to receive British Cycling member benefits.

Ian Drake, British Cycling Chief Executive, said:

"This surge in membership comes in the middle of a great summer for British Cycling.

"We recently passed 50,000 members and were delighted by Sport England figures which showed 160,000 more people are cycling than were six months ago.

"July has been a bumper month. We’ve celebrated success by fellow British Cycling members Bradley Wiggins, Britain's first Tour de France winner, and Lizzie Armitstead, whose medal in the London 2012 women's road race on Sunday drew in unprecedented crowds.

"There is more great cycling to come in the Olympics and Paralympics and I believe we have already established a legacy for the sport. Continued success will inspire thousands more to join British Cycling."

British Cycling provides a range of benefits to support its members including free legal assistance, up to £10 million liability insurance and discounts on cycling purchases. Members also get priority access to tickets for major cycling events like the Glasgow Track World Cup this November. British Cycling puts on nearly 4,000 events a year and speaks out on issues that matter to cyclists. All membership revenue is invested back into the sport.
