FAQs

How do I join?

Click the link to the left called ‘Cycling Standard Membership’. Join and you can attend all our rides, socials and much much more! The SU are changing the membership prices this year so keep an eye out for more information.

I don’t have a bike, can I still join?

Absolutely! Even though it might be a good idea to have one so you can join in our rides, there are still plenty of reasons to join including our coached spin sessions (including women-only sessions) and regular social events.

Do I have go on the group rides?

Nope there's no requirement to do any riding as part of the club, but we think the group rides are one of the best ways to get involved.

Do I have to be a member to ride with the club?

For the first two weeks of term, no. After that, yes.

I am new to cycling/not very fast/not cycled in a group, does this matter?

No worries! The club is very inclusive and beginner friendly. There are rides suitable for all abilities of rider every Wednesday.

If I join, am I expected to race?

Not at all. We understand that everyone cycles for different reasons and racing isn't for everyone. However, if racing is your thing, there will be plenty of opportunities to race for UoBCC over the year, whether you’re new to racing or a national champion.

How do I get some of your awesome kit?

Thanks, we think it’s awesome too! Once you are a member, keep an eye out on the Facebook page which will let you know once it’s available. When the club order is open, there will be a link on the left where you can order some.


If you have any other questions don’t hesitate to get in touch with any of the committee, we’d love to hear from you!
