Club members are the life blood of our club. With that in mind, we encourage all club members to volunteer at one or two of the many events we hold each year, be it helping with the signing on process at Road Race or CX events, marshalling or distributing course signage, anything you can do to help share the load is appreciated and is a great way to meet other club members.
Membership runs from January 1st-December 31st and so all renewal Membership Payments will be due for payment at the beginning of each year. To pay for membership, the only accepted method is via the payment portal on the British Cycling website (please note that you DO NOT need to join BC, but you will need to register). A handy guide is available via the Membership Secretary. Alternatively, in exceptional circumstances, we may be able to accept a cheque if you are having problems with working online, again contact the Membership Secretary for more info via our club contact page.
The vast majority of club members are now online and this means that communicating within the Club can be carried out much more efficiently. Please help us to keep an up to date register of members’ e-mail addresses by updating your profile on British Cycling with the appropriate contact details (help/guidance is available from our Membership Secretary, if required).
Please note that all members who partake in cycling activities will be expected to comply with the appropriate Ride Etiquette, either Road or MTB. In addition, all members who are under 18 years old will need to ensure that a parental consent form is completed (which will be available from the Membership Secretary on application to join).
Please note that the minimum age for unaccompanied children on any C&CCC ride/event is 13. Young riders aged 13 to 17 may participate unaccompanied but they must be members, have parental permission and a signed Parental Consent Form. There is no lower age limit if accompanied by a parent or responsible adult acting in loco parentis, but a signed Parental Consent Form is still needed. A ride leader may still decide that, prior to a ride starting, an unaccompanied young rider cannot participate in a particular group ride/event so parents should plan for this possible outcome, although this will be a very rare event.
