There are many benefits to joining Dunfermline Cycling Club, not least the chance to be able to talk to like-minded people with a wealth of experience. Fellow club members will be able to give you lots of advice on what equipment to buy, which events to do, cycling etiquette, how to prepare for racing and generally make cycling a more enjoyable experience.
Joining the club will allow you to cycle on all of the our organised rides. Non-members are allowed to ride with the club five times before being expected to join. This gives non-members the chance to try out the club before committing to becoming a member. Please feel free to come along to one of our weekly rides, the Saturday cafe run is usually the best place to start. Please introduce yourself when you arrive at the meeting place and someone will show you the ropes.
New members can submit their membership application on-line through British Cycling.
You do not need BC membership but we highly recommend viewing their packages as they do include insurance required by the Club along with other benefits. Annual membership renewals are done by direct debit.
All active club members are required to have third party insurance cover. This is usually obtained by purchasing (Gold, Silver or Ride) membership of British Cycling but is also available via our affiliation to Cycling UK (CTC).
When you apply to join you will be asked to provide your British Cycling or Cycling UK membership number or provide details of your independent insurance provision.
Under 18s require parental consent to join the club and the Parental Consent form must also be completed in this instance.
