The UCI’s mission is to develop and promote cycling, in close collaboration with the National federations (NF), as a competitive
sport with its associated values (effort, achievement and fair play), as a recreational activity that is good for health and also as an
environmentally-friendly means of transport.
In order to carry out its mission, the UCI is supported by its administrative service, which, while respecting the values associated
with the heritage of cycling:
• offers its skills and services to the NFs and other organisations in the cycling movement,
• supports education and development activities,
• responds to the needs of cyclists through innovative, concrete initiatives,
• represents cycling on sports and public bodies,
• regulates the sport of cycling,
• organises the World Championships, World Cups and cycling events of the Olympic Games.
