The “core business” of CPA is defending and representing the riders

As specified in its bylaws, the CPA works to defend the interests of professional riders and to improve their working conditions

One of the CPA's key activities is ensuring that pro cyclists are represented within UCI and its Committees, in the Cycling Federations, and in other governing bodies which are actively involved in this field.

The main interlocutors of the CPA include the UCI (Union Cycliste Internationale, the International Cycling Union), the AIGCP (Association Internationale des Groupes Cyclistes Professionnels) and the AIOCC (Association Internationale des Organisateurs de Courses Cyclistes).

Joint agreement

Every two years, the CPA & the AIGCP sign a new joint agreement which establishes the minimum standards for working conditions such as wages and insurance.

CPA’s projects

The association “Cyclistes Professionnels Associés” represents the interests of the professional riders and their safety during the races come always first.

CPA Women

CPA Women is part of CPA and is the only international association of professional female riders, giving female athletes a voice.
