Riders and Associations members of the CPA

Full Members of the CPA are all the licensed professional riders who belong to the UCI World Teams and Professional Continental Teams. Also national cycling associations are members

The CPA is composed of several national associations, which are in charge of dealing with the riders' needs at a local level. Each association functions according to its own bylaws and regulations, and act as a cyclists' national union to provide assistance to the riders in the event of contractual, legal, tax or pension issues. They work in close cooperation with the national federations in their respective countries, and they actively engage in training new professionals and in reintegrating former riders into work after the end of their careers. They are also in charge of promoting cycling among young people, and of developing initiatives aimed at, among others, spreading the culture of road safety. They are mostly funded by a share (3%) of the riders' prizes for races organised in their specific countries, as well as by means of sponsorships for events they organise.

The member associations of the CPA act as a connecting link between the CPA and the riders, and play a paramount role in the smooth functioning of the rider representation system as a whole.
The first associations to join the CPA were those from countries with a long-standing cycling tradition, i.e. Italy, France, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Portugal. In more recent years, the CPA has promoted the creation of new national associations in countries such as the USA and Canada. The countries where the CPA has recently tried to found new cyclists’ members unions are: Australia, England, Germany, Poland, Slovakia and Africa.
