How to join

Newcomers are welcome on all our rides. You don't have to be a member to try us out, and there's no need to tell us in advance that you're coming, but we do ask you to print out and complete a guest entry form and bring it with you. Please give this to the ride leader at the start of the ride.

All our rides are listed in our monthly rides lists, which are available by following the links on the front page of our website. Read about our weekly rides programme to find out what our different rides are like. If you're not sure which rides are most suitable for you, you're welcome to contact us by email or phone.

Non-members are welcome on our rides on three occasions. After that we'll expect you to join. See below for how to do this.

There are some additional guidelines for riders under the age of 18.


We are a local group of Cycling UK, the national cycling charity. To join us you need to become a member of the national organisation. You can join online on the Cycling UK website.

Once you've joined you will be able to join our email discussion group. This is a good way to keep in touch with other members and allows you to receive the latest news about changes to our rides.

Note that if you're already a member of Cycling UK nationally then you're already a member of your local group. Let the ride leader know you're a member.
