Membership categories are as follows:

|The above figures do not include membership of British Cycling or Cycling UK. We strongly recommend joining one of these for third party insurance purposes – accidents happen occasionally (details about the club’s own insurance policy can be seen here). Details are on the respective websites.|
(‘Second Claim’ applies to those who are already members of another club and require membership with Seacroft to take part in various time-trial/racing events.)
Membership runs from 1st February to 31st January, and subs for each year are due at the start of the membership year. If you join after 31st October, the following year’s subs are included. In other words, you receive up to 15 months membership for the price of 12.
Club Constitution & Rules.
There are many benefits to joining a cycling club:
Meeting new people and making new friends.
Organised regular rides on most Sundays with a ride leader. Routes are varied each week and generally try to keep to the quieter minor roads.
It is likely you will get to ride on roads you have not been on before.
Four different Sunday road rides to choose from for different abilities and fitness (Short Social, Elementary, Intermediate and Club) allowing you to progress and improve your fitness if you wish.
Active off road scene, mountain bike rides, cyclo cross rides, training and coaching (seasonal).
Mid week evening training and coaching sessions (seasonal).
Racing opportunities for beginners to experts, road, time trialing and cyclo cross.
Club competitions and awards.
Subsidised club kit, 1st claim members currently receive a 15% subsidy on one short sleeved and long sleeved “race” jersey see club kit.
Subsidised social events/trips/rides/meals/club-branded products.
Mechanical and kit advice, another member has probably seen it, has it and or broken it 😉
As a British Cycling affiliated club, all 1st claim members that haven’t been a member of BC before, can get 50% off the “Ride” level of membership for the first year (£21.50 instead of £43).

The club has three ways that you can get free membership for the next year
1. Marshalling or helping at club events in a calendar year
Requests for help will be made prior to each event via social media and email.
You need four points or more to qualify for free membership for the next year.
You get 2 points for helping at each of: Club Road Race (Mar), Para TT (August), Jonathan Noble Cyclo-Cross (Sep) and for timekeeping at the club evening time trials.
You get 1 point for helping at each of the four club evening time trials:
Hill Climb (Apr and Aug), 2-up 10 (Aug) or 3-up 10 (Aug).
2. Introduce a new member to the club
If you introduce someone that has not previously been a member or attended a ride, then when they have officially joined (completed the membership form and paid their subs), you will qualify for free membership in the following subscription year. The newly joining member must add your name to the membership form when they join or you should send an email to the Membership Secretary before they join in order to benefit from this.
