Members of other clubs may join Reading Cycling Club.

All members shall have the same rights but are not eligible for club championships or records and may not hold club trophies other than those won in open events if they are registered under a different prime club with either BC or CTT.

How to join us

To join the club please go to Reading CC site at British Cycling and pay for the type of membership you require.

If, for some reason, it’s completely impossible for you to pay via BC, you may also download the membership form and send a cheque to the address on the form, but online payment via BC is preferred as it vastly simplifies the club’s administration.

The club does not issue membership cards. Once you become a member you will be added to the Google Group for Reading Cycling Club and so can access any benefits. The group allows you to send e-mails to all other members and share information, photos and chat online.

You MUST be a member of Reading CC first.

The club also has a Facebook page that is available to non-members:

To me, it doesn’t matter whether it’s raining or the sun is shining or whatever: as long as I’m riding a bike I know I’m the luckiest guy in the world
