Joining a cycling club for the first time can seem a daunting prospect. Questions such as "Am I fast enough to keep up?", "What if I can't ride that far?" often cross people's minds.
Several of our members have opted to be cycling buddies for new starters. They will arrange to ride with you to your first club ride or event so you will already know at least one person and you don't have to arrive alone. They will commit to riding the whole of the first event with you. If for any reason you decide it's not for you, they will ensure you get home safely.
If you wish to take advantage of our buddy system drop us an message using the Contact Us button below. One of our buddies will contact you to discuss your requirements and arrange to mentor you on a future ride.
Membership runs from 1st Jan to 31st Dec each year. Joiners who are new to the club and start 6 months or more into the year will only pay for half of that year.

We are currently updating the membership process to allow you to join or renew online. Current membership expires on 31st December. In November all our members will receive an email inviting them to renew via the new online process.
All club members are expected to hold 3rd Party Liability Insurance during their membership.
This means that if you cause an accident, damage someone else's property or injure someone whilst out cycling then you have insurance in place to cover any costs. Insurance is available from as little as £25 per year that will provide up to £10 million of cover.
If you are thinking of joining the club and would like to try a few club runs or training rides whilst you decide then the club has an insurance policy that will cover you for up to three rides, thereafter you will be expected to join the club and sort your own 3rd party insurance.
It is the individual member's responsibility to ensure they have sufficient appropriate third party insurance in place.
The club currently affiliates to Cycle UK and British Cycling allowing the club members access to their affiliate insurance schemes.
Other insurance providers are available.
Membership of the National Clarion is on an individual basis. For the avoidance of doubt, no member of the club is obliged to join the (National) Clarion Cycling Club. If you wish to join then you must do so individually via their website (https://clarioncc.org/join-us/)
CCW does not hold any information about individual National Clarion Membership.
