While we always welcome new riders, and offer the availability to ‘come and try’, riders who are not affiliated to a club will need to apply for membership in order to continue participation in the organised group rides and time trials. Riders who are affiliated to another BC club and are riding club events regularly should support the club by taking out Second Claim Membership. This is a reduced cost for those who have already affiliated to BC or CTT. A lot of effort goes into organizing club events (a lot of it unseen) and although we welcome all cyclists those that want to enjoy more than casual use of these activities and events should support the club and the members by joining

Please note the following: Anyone racing in the club’s name or colours, whether the events are organised under the rules of British Cycling, Cycling Time Trials, LVRC etc, must have a valid membership before competing. If you have not renewed beforehand you may not be covered by the organising body’s insurance in the event of an incident. 

It is important to note that those participating in the Club Time Trials Series and SCCA series will only receive points if associated with the club through membership.
