Club Rules

It is recommended that members hold insurance against third party liability incurred during cycling activities, such as provided by membership of Cycling UK (ex-CTC) or British Cycling (BC).

Amateur sports clubs are only as good as the efforts put in by the members to organise rides, races, competitions and other functions, so please consider volunteering to help out. Every little bit helps!
