Club Membership

New For 2019 / 2020 Membership

From 2020 onwards Cheltenham & County Cycle Club is intended to cease as a named club and all members are to apply to join a new Company called Cheltenham & County Cycle Club Limited, which is a Company Limited by Guarantee.

New members need to apply through the British Cycling Portal,

In addition members joining the Company need to agree to Guarantee the debts of the Company up to a maximum amount of £1, if the Company is wound up, while being a member and for a period of up to 12 months after the members membership ends.

Members also authorise the Company to register their name on the Companies register of members.

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. Due to the importance of your help we offer to pay £10 towards your costs associated with helping at an event we are organising (this does not apply to the TT Series).

Please note that all members who partake in our club 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 children on any C&CCC ride / event is 14.  Young riders aged 14 to 17 may participate but must be accompanied on a ride and they must be a club member.  Parental permission is also required along with a signed Parental Consent Form received from our Membership Secretary. 

A ride leader may still decide that, prior to a ride starting, that an accompanied young rider cannot participate in a particular group ride / event, so parents should plan for this possible outcome, though a  rare event.
