We are a Member Group of Cycling UK and most of our activities are run for Cycling UK members.  We welcome guests who can ride with us a few times before deciding if we’re the club for them, we can then arrange a free no obligation three month trial membership which will include many of the benefits of full membership.

Cycling UK membership has many benefits, including six issues a year of Cycle magazine, third party insurance and legal helpline, as well as various discounts and being able to ride with any of the nationwide Member Groups.

Full membership costs £45 a year or £3.75 a month with other rates for seniors, households, students and unwaged.


You may have seen our bright blue and yellow jerseys and other club kit.  This is ordered periodically when there’s the demand.  If you’re interested in wearing our club kit, please let us know and we’ll be in touch when we’re next ordering.

In conjunction with Mercia CC we produce a quarterly magazine, full of news, ride reports, touring tales, maybe a joke or two, reviews and photos.  Subscriptions are £6 a year or £1.50 an issue including postage.  Please contact us if you’d like to subscribe or advertise or have something  included.

Our Best All Rounder competition has been running for many years with a trophy and small prize presented annually.

We are at heart a non-competitive cycling club and the events that make up this competition are more about fun and participation than winners.

The events and other activities that make up the BAR are decided each year at the AGM, some are regular features others less so or unique.

Points in 2017 are awarded for:

  • Hill Climb and Freewheel competition – Completed
  • Photo Competition – Completed
  • Awheel magazine contribution
  • Rough Stuff Ride –
  • Standard Rides –
  • Moira Audax –

Further details will be found on the rides pages.
