There are THREE types of Heart of England Cycling Club Membership. New Memberships are available for 5 years (from 1 January in the year of joining) at the reduced rate of £30 for the 5 years or, for 1 year (from 1 January in the year of joining)  at £10. There is also our FREE Two Week Trial membership. 

Membership is open to over 18s only. It is a club rule that all riders must have Third Party Liability Insurance that provides cover when cycling. Therefore, Membership Applications that do not state Insurance details will be rejected..

NEW MEMBERS should first read the Club Constitution, and Advice to Riders (both under the Administration tab) and check their Third Party Liability Insurance. Then download the Membership Application form (see below) and complete all the details requested. We do not allow ‘Guest Riders’, BUT you can have a free two week trial; just complete a Membership Application Form, you can submit in advance or bring with you on your first ride.

1    Third Party Liability Insurance is required  (It should provide cover of at least £10m when cycling)

2    Membership of Cycling UK or British Cycling (Ride/Race) provides adequate cover. You may have your own alternative Third-party liability insurance* at an equivalent or higher level than Cycling UK/British Cycling member insurance. The Membership Secretary may request confirmation of insurance cover. Members with the (preferred) FIVE YEAR membership undertake to maintain the required insurance cover for the duration of membership.

3    Insurance Details  Please include your CUK/BC membership number or name of alternative insurer and policy number where requested on the Membership Form.
