The club is run entirely by volunteers, and we ask all members to help the club by marshalling or otherwise assisting if possible at one of our open races during the season, and to wear club kit in races and club training rides wherever possible. We also insist that you wear a helmet on club rides.

We also ask that members and prospective members read and make themselves familiar with the Club Ride Guidelines and Code of Conduct and the Club Rules.

A note about first and second claim membership – this is only relevant to those who are members of two or more clubs. In that case, first claim is the club you wish to compete for. Second claim is another club you may join but cannot compete for in open events. So, if you are joining one club only you are always first claim; it’s nothing to do with renewals.

How do I join?

Joining the club involves a few different steps, but we do our best to keep you informed along the way and to make this as painless as possible:

  1. Register on the site by filling out our online registration form . This will ask for personal details and emergency contact numbers.
  2. You will receive an automated email response with a link for you to confirm your email address, and with a link to the next step of the process – buying a membership. Check your junk/spam folder (and your Promotions tab if you’re on Gmail) if you don’t see this email.
  3. Make sure you are logged in to our website, and then use the Buy Membership page to join the club. You can pay online via credit card or debit card. Or you can pay manually (see below).
  4. Once we have received your payment, we will then check and approve your application, and we will email you when that has been completed. Then you will have full access to all the members’ features of the site.
    Please note that if you don’t complete step 3 within one month of registration, your account will be removed.

If you can’t or don’t want to pay online, then payment can be made via cheque by post to the Membership Secretary, or by bank transfer. Contact the Membership Secretary for details.
