It would seem thatthe various lockdowns have produced some people who have become a lot fitter and some people who have become less fit. I am definitely in the latter camp. Back in the Normal Times, I was pretty much reduced to a cycle commute on the Dahon, split into two parts of about 2 miles...
I’ve been BC member for a couple of years. It’s just really for the insurance - I’ve never used any of the other facilities. Maybe occasionally the Halfords discount...
Anyway - renewal is due shortly, wondering if I should give cyclingUK a try. Cost are similar.
Any special offers on the go...
I have just joined it for the following reasons:
- 10% off Harfords, Evans and some others.
- Third liability insurance.
- Free front and back lights as a welcome gift although I don't ride at night but useful in poor visibility in daylight.
Are these good enough reasons to join?
so I put my postcode in the ''local events'' search box on the British Cycling website and it came back with loads of local free events....GREAT !! - I initially thought until I checked out the conditions....Most stated
'' women only''
I appreciate that some women prefer to cycle in groups of...
Just logged onto my HSBC account and Chris Hoy pops up!

Existing BC members can get a gift.
Not looked into the details yet, but will later.
Evening all, i am a newly qualified ride leader for British Cycling.

Hi Folks, I've not really been on here much lately... Just popping in to read the amazing Jokes :whistle: in the café
No real reason for the absence just busy with other things and cycling a lot during the summer (and in September for Cancer research 300 mile did 504 and raised £250 so pretty...
I have aversion to paying for things I don't need/use, so is £35.10 a fair price for British Cycling membership, it seems expensive to me for the benefits.
Priority access to tickets I'll not use this
Weekly Member Newsletter I'm not interested in this
10% off in Halfords stores nationwide I...
Trying to join Let's ride so I can participate in my local social cycling group. I'm concerned about the amount of personal information required in order to make a profile though. They require home and mobile numbers, date of birth, home address and postcode. I tried filling in the form without...
My Cycling UK membership is up just before I need it for a Fridays run. As The Fridays now accept both as a requirement for their rides is there a compelling reason to choose one over the other? They both have the Halfords discount which is usefull for sundries.......anything else worth considering?
BC have voted to accept government proposals to make the sport's governing body more independent and diverse:
I guess they didn't have a choice if they wanted to keep their funding, but it will be interesting to see if spreading the funds wider has...
First up apologies if this has already been discussed but I couldn't find a thread on it.
I'm thinking of joining one of the above for the insurance mainly.
What are the advantages of either?
I know BC do a Halfords discount but CU does seem to be getting stuck into issues regarding cyclist...
Having bought this last year it's been sat unused. I'm guilty of buying a jersey that I'll never use - aren't we all sometimes :blush:
Therefore it is better going to someone who will use it, hang it on a wall or pay more interest than I have ended up doing due to my health issues. The retro...
British Cycling has announced that HSBC UK is to become its new lead partner for the next eight years commencing from January 1.
The two will work across the sport from participation at grassroots level and major organised cycling events through to the highest level of performance with the...
While I'm at home with feet up and not out riding on a nice cool still day like today (see my seizure thread for why rather than throw bricks here please :) )
I'm looking at getting back on the BC bandwagon and joining up. The below clip cut from their Legal support info on the Ride membership...
