The Icelandic Cyclists' Federation

Icelandic Cyclists' Federation represents the interests of all cyclists in Iceland.

Our official member organizations include three of the most active cycling clubs in Iceland, The Icelandic mountainbike club, The Cycling Club of Reykjavik and Hjólamenn.

 

Organization

The Icelandic Cyclists' Federation was established in 1995 as an umbrella organisation for touring, commuting and sports cyclists  in cooperation with a national body for non-competitive sports (Íþróttir fyrir alla), under the Icelandic Sports Association. The official name is Landssamtök hjólreiðamanna (in Icelandic), abbreviated LHM.

Board members of the clubs under the umbrella have often had representatives in the board of LHM.

 

Strategy and vision

LHM promotes cycling as a sustainable and healthy means of transportation and recreation, a competitive sport and a family-friendly non-competitive sports activity.

LHM represents cyclists interests at the local and national level.

LHM is a member of the European Cyclists' Federation.
