The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) is the international governing body for the sport of cycling, based in Switzerland. It oversees world championships for road, mountain bike, track, and cyclocross disciplines, sanctions all major international competitions, and tabulates points rankings for the disciplines throughout the season, among other responsibilities.

Brian Cookson is the UCI’s current president, and he has tried to usher in a new era of transparency after presidents Pat McQuaid and Hein Verbruggen who were sometimes under fire for alleged corruption or cover-ups.

In one form or another, the organization has existed since 1900.
