Membership of the Club shall be open to anyone interested in the sport regardless of sex, age, disability, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, religion or other beliefs.
The Club offers different levels of membership and subscription on a non-discriminatory and fair basis and will keep subscriptions at levels that will not pose a significant obstacle to people participating. All ages based on the date of joining and is valid for the subscription period.
Joining the Club entitles members to participate in club rides and events, purchase club kit, receive a discount at Broadribb Cycles and receive discount at Banbury Bike Box Hire. These may change over time and updates will be published as appropriate.
It is a condition of membership that members assist with the running of the club’s events, e.g. pushing-off, marshalling, time-keeping.
