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.

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. The BAR Competition is decided on a points scoring basis.

Events in the 2019 Competition are:

Awheel magazine contribution – open all year

Photo competition – Completed

Rough Stuff Ride – Date TBC

Night Ride –  6/7 July

Standard Rides – 14 July

Moira Audaxes (200km and 100km rides)  – 1 Sept

Hill Climb and Freewheel competition – 6 October

The winner of the 2017/18 competition was Glen Corcoran. A thoroughly deserved award, Glen does not miss many of the rides. 2nd was Darron Nicholls and 3rd Ian Hill. The award was made at the Sunday Christmas lunch at The Hilton House Hotel.

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.
