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.
CTC Derby and Burton Club Clothing
You may have seen club members in the bright yellow and blue club clothing, this is ordered periodically, with the next order due to be placed early in 2020, samples and order details available shortly.
Our Best All Rounder competition (BAR) 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.
This year we’ll try where possible to offer alternative dates for similar events to broaden the appeal and hopefully include more members. Where this is the case points will only be awarded for one event, though you’ll be very welcome to participate in as many as you like.
