Membership

Welcome to our club

Joining BCDS couldn't be simpler and to help integrate you straight away into our club we will even give you a free club shirt to help you feel like part of the team straight away.

So why join a club?

Whether a seasoned pro or beginner to cycling there is nothing better than ridding with like minded people to help your own skill development, challenge yourself further and of course receive the support from a sociable bunch.


So who do BCDS cater for?

We are an accredited go-ride club, this means we provide something for everyone, particularly kids. Even if you don’t ride yourself we have plenty of opportunities for you to get involved with the club and help us to grow this fantastic sport.

On the ridding front we are a predominantly Road focussed club but do have sections within the club that take part in a wide range of disciplines including Track Racing and Cyclo-Cross through the winter. Our Go-Ride section encourages young people to develop skills across all disciplines of the sport to allow them to become a more complete rider. For the younger riders who have just started riding for the first time why not look at our Go-Ride membership package.

What do I get for my Membership?

New Members are entitled to a free BCDS cycling shirt upon joining (1 shirt per family membership). Members get discount on coaching sessions including club sessions at Newport Velodrome , priority access to a number of events such as local sportives including free entry for eligible youth riders to the Great Weston Ride and discounted membership to our national governing body, British Cycling but above all you’ll be part of a fantastic group of individuals dedicated to growing the sport & opportunities of cyclists in the Bristol area.

So what do I need to join?

Prospective members will need to take out British Cycling membership, there are a wide range of packages available to suit all, including the Fan package for non-riding members. It is a condition of club membership that all riders have either a Ride or Race (at least Silver)membership, as these packages include a number of benefits to cyclists on the road such as insurance cover.

Non ridding family members can take advantage of the new Fan package offered from British Cycling which allows you to show your support for our sport as well as giving you priority access as a spectator to major cycling events, as well of course as supporting the worlds No1 cycling nation.

Young riders who only take part in club sessions in traffic free areas may be best suited to our Go-Ride membership package.
