The first edition of the combined UCI Cycling World Championships will be held between August 3-13, 2023 in Glasgow, with the summer date sparking a number of clashes with the traditional road racing calendar. 

Described as an '11-day mega event' by the UCI, the Glasgow 2023 World Championships will bring together 13 different cycling World Championships, across at least six different locations around Glasgow and southern Scotland. The event will award rainbow jerseys for road racing, time trials, track, BMX, indoor cycling and para-cycling.
