Cycling Pulse is a site that lists competitive and non-competitive cycling events in the UK and geared for the avid bike club cyclist, whether he is a time triallist, track rider, road racer, sportive rider, charity ride participant or organized bike tour cyclist. What is a sportive? Many cyclosportive events attract a wide range of riders, from dedicated racing cyclists to leisure cyclists wanting a challenging ride, allows them to test themselves over a race-proven route.
It is also for cyclists that are new to cycling, such as beginners who wish to become better cyclists, enter the world of more competitive cycling or go on sponsored bike tours or charitable event rides. It is not really geared for the family or leisure cyclist who rides a bike once a month.
Cyclists can register online for thousands of events, record their results and create a calendar for events they wish to participate in. They can also purchase their Electronic Racing Tag, which is used in Electronic Timed Events. The tag is called Pulse.
It is also for Event Organisers to list and manage their event, promote their event, purchase event insurance and use other Cycling Pulse services.
The site will hold RSS feeds of events, provide news in the cycling community, calendars for cyclists to plan as well as a My CyclingPulse section where cyclists can plug in their results, training results etc.
