National rider associations

Riders can participate in the life of the CPA either as individual members or through their national association. These bodies have existed for a very long time in many nations to help the category of riders in their country. Their function is crucial in safeguarding the rights and improving the working conditions of the professional cyclists at the local level. The CPA is ready to support the establishment of new rider associations around the world and has provided funds to do so.
