This is one of the best times of the year if you are a fan of road racing in the sport of cycling. In fact, if you’ve yet to check out the upcoming world championships, I’d recommend looking at my full UCI Road World Championships preview when you can. This contains a ton of key information about the event. However, right here, I will be keeping the focus on the UCI Road World Championships schedule for 2023.

UCI Road World Championships Schedule

Fortunately, the schedule is packed for these championships, so we’ve got loads of high-quality races to watch. As for when the action will begin, the individual races will start on Saturday, August 5th. From here, there will be races each and every day until the UCI Road World Championships come to a close on Sunday, August 13th. With this said, as you might be aware, these championships offer a blend of adult and youth races between these dates.

Not only that, but the races are varied in how they operate too. Some are road races, others are individual time trials, and there is one mixed relay event. This means there is something for everyone. And now, let’s delve deeper into the complete UCI Road World Championships schedule.

UCI Road World Championships Schedule – Event Overview

This year is the 96th installment of the UCI Road World Championships. And over the years, this event has gone through quite a transformation. What started out as an event for amateurs has evolved to become one of the premium events in the sport of cycling. In fact, this time around, there are 13 races involved in the UCI Road World Championships. All of these races are set to be held in Scotland this year, which guarantees some exciting courses and quite spectacular scenery too.

However, in terms of the overview of the UCI Road World Championships schedule, I figured it’s best to let you know what’s happening on certain days. So below, I’ve provided a brief run-through of the events by date.
