Benefits

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.

Three different Sunday rides to choose from for different abilities and fitness (Social, Intermediate and Club) allowing you to progress and improve your fitness if you wish.

Subsidised club kit.
1st claim members currently receive a 15% subsidy on one short sleeved and long sleeved “race” jersey see club kit.

Subsidised trips/rides/meals/club-branded products.
