Try before you buy?

Okay so you're not sure whether you want to join us on not ? Not a problem, you can come along and join us on a club ride. Just tell the ride leader you're trying it out, introduce yourself and enjoy the ride. Feel free to ask questions and get what you can out of the experience. We recognise that you might want to do this more than once but we set a maximum of 3 rides before you have to sign up. Continually turning up to rides as a non-member is not fair on our paying members, and should anything happen on the ride you may not be covered by the clubs insurance.

Insurance:- are you covered? 
  • All active 'cycling' members of the club are required to have third party liability insurance. You have several options to choose from, join British Cycling as a Silver, Gold or Ride member, join CTC or speak to an insurance broker for a quote.  Occasionally we might ask for proof of cover - this is to protect you, other roads users and fellow members during club activities.

  • Access to regular weekly rides - these are on Saturdays Sundays (and Tuesdays between April-September)
