Are you covered?!

Insurance: are you covered should something happen to you or your bike when out on club runs or even when commuting or out on your own?

If you’re not covered please look into British Cycling Membership, this will cover you for any claims. For full information check the British Cycling site.

you will be covered for 3rd Party Liability, are you being blamed for an incident? (see here)

Legal Support, have you been in an incident where someone else is to blame? (see here)

Other organisations offer insurance (such as CTC) but the majority of our members use British Cycling. If you want to know more look on the BC Site or contact us. (links above and below)

If you are  CLUB member and joining British cycling for the first time, grab a discount on your first year of membership with the club , see here for more info

if you are an ‘old’ member of BC or have lapsed

Thinking of joining?

There’s never been a better time to come and try the club, we’re fast approaching the 90-100 members bracket and now the weather is warming up club activity is stepping up, we’ve the club rides, easy wheelers and development rides every other week as well as trips away, sportives and many other events tackled as a club.
Once you join you can enter our members area where individual members plan their own rides through the week, this includes speed loops, hill training loops, race training as well as more social / steady paced rides.
Visit our site at
Or to join us

Check our events tab in Facebook for our latest event schedule. Non members are more than welcome to join us for a few rides to see what the club is like, no fuss no hassle it’s as easy as just letting us know via a post on the event page that you can make it

We hope to see some new faces in the coming weeks, the return of some riders we seen last year and the regular faces.

Something to sell?

Just a heads up that members can sell items on the Members Chat Page, Facebook has released a new scheme where we can allow our members a specific medium to sell any cycling stuff they may have on offer.

It’s free to use for our members and another benefit of our members page.
