Membership is £15 per year for riders having us as their main club, and £10 for members of other clubs (also known as a second claim, you will gain points in events for your main club and to qualify you must be a part of a BC affiliated club) British Cycling levy a £1 fee to process all memberships. This enables us as a club, and British Cycling to keep memberships relevant and all online. All BCC memberships are manually verified so please don’t be alarmed if we take a while to ‘accept’ you. If you have any issues with paying online, get in touch and we’ll see how we can help.

Membership year runs from 1st January until 31st December. Members Joining from June onwards will be eligible for a ‘half year’ subscription.

If you have never rode with us drop us a message and let us know you want to come along, you can tweet us, join in on one of our events on Facebook or use the contact form on the website. All we ask is if your plans change you let us know so we are roughly knowing who to expect.
We encourage you you to come along for a couple of rides to see what we are about, then we strongly encourage people to join us if they feel we are the right club for them, we appreciated those new to clubs and group riding can find it a little daunting, so let us know you’re new and we’ll make sure you are looked after.

On official rides we don’t have any steadfast rules but, we take a common sense approach, we do ask all riders wear an appropriate cycling helmet, and are dressed appropriately for the weather (cold etc etc)
Other than that we require all riders to ride responsibly, not put other riders, road users or pedestrians at risk and obey relevant traffic laws and regulations whenever out in public. Ride leaders (usually experienced members) may ask for help to keep the ride safe, please listen and follow any instructions, calls, or hand signals.

full member terms can be found here

All rides are created on as Facebook events they can be found on our events page or on the right hand side of the website, and in the main carry a ride summary as well as a GPS file for anyone with a Garmin or GPS device. The page is ‘public’ so open so you don’t have to be an active Facebook member to view events.

    Hi would you welcome someone on a hybrid type bike ? I have competed a few of the local sportives generally the small routes 50-70miles.
    Cheers Keith

  2. Blaydon Cycle Club says:

    we have had one person on a Hybrid who managed to keep up, generally if you can do a 40 odd mile route anywhere between 12-14mph you should be fine. it’s a hard one to judge from the question alone. but feel free to try us out. most of the riders are on road bikes.

  3. Craig Hall says:

    Just on the back of that hybrid comment. I am new to cycling and so far enjoying it I have purchased a cyclocross bike do you think that this type bike would be ok with your road bikes (with them being slightly heavier)

  4. Rob says:

    Hi craig – sorry no one has got back to you! I’ve done a few rides on a cx bike, without really knowing properly what your level of riding is, I would perhaps suggest turning up at a ‘Development Ride’ see how you do on that bit/ly/blaydonevents for all our rides. But in short we’ve had a few members on CX bikes who’ve managed fine!
