Discounted British Cycling membership for club members new to BC
The codes to use are in the members forums for FCCC members interested in joining BC for the first time. They are offering Year 1 membership discounts - example Year 1 costs are (normal price in brackets):
Senior memberships -
- Race Bronze Free (£20)
- Senior Race Silver £20 (£40)
- Race Gold £49 (£69)
- Ride £16 (£32).
CTC affiliation - membership and third-party insurance benefits for members.
FCCC is affiliated to the CTC.
FCCC members pay only £16 for CTC affiliate membership - a huge saving as full membership is £41. The club has invested to get this scheme up and running, and hopefully more members will sign up during the next year. Details of how to join are in the members forums. Please contact Nick if you have any questions.
Benefits of affiliate membership include third-party insurance, the CTC email newsletter, free cycling-related legal advice and various discounts including the CTC shop, which is basically a 12% discount on the Wiggle site.
For completeness, please note that you don't get the following CTC benefits through affiliated membership - the paper magazine, access to the members area / forums on their website or access to CTC’s other legal, touring and technical helplines. Bike insurance is not included in either standard or affiliated CTC membership.
Discounts on energy drinks and other nutrition products
Members of the club can obtain big discounts (30% or more on top brands) on sports drinks, gels, recovery drinks, energy bars etc.. Some of our members save two or three times the cost of membership on this alone! Prices and details of how the order process works can be found in the members-only forums. Please contact Stuart if you want to place an order.
New Web Store
We have installed some new software so that we can, eventually, order club kit online for collection at club nights. While we get this set up, we have set the shop up for GT85, inflators etc. You can order these online and then collect from Bob (at the moment) on club nights. Let him know if you see any 'funnies' (there's a menu item next to memberships if you are logged in as a club member). You can add comments for reviews of products on the shop.
Bike For Sale
We don't usually carry personal ads, but thanks to Chris Young for sending through a picture of (he says) his wife's bike which is for sale. It doesn't go so well on the road, and is not heavily used but check it out in the gallery.
