You may be a bit daunted about the thought of joining a cycling club if you have never been a member of one before.  Don’t be, we have members with a wide range of ability, age and commitment.  Whatever your standard of fitness, you’ll be more than welcome.  You are bound to find someone in the club who is about the same standard as you.

The best way to find out if you want to join us is to come along to one of our club runs:

Beginners:  The first Saturday ride of every month includes a beginner’s run – see the RUNS page

Experienced riders:  Try a Sat ride - (7.30am or 9am from Warwick Castle Gates).  You don’t have to join the club to come cycling with us and you will soon find your fitness improving after a few rides. So why not come along and see if you like it?

Note that it is a requirement of the Club that you have third party insurance that covers you for cycling related activities and you will be required to confirm this when you apply to join the club.  The recommended way to arrange this is via membership of a cycling organization such as British Cycling or CTC, where insurance is provided as part of the membership.

Note that whether you have a single membership or family membership, your kids (if under the age of 18) may join for free.  Simply advise their names and ages where prompted.

The Club year runs from 1st January through to 31st December.  If you join after 1 October, your membership will also be valid for the following year.

What does the membership subscription cover?

The club is a non profit making organization and your membership subscription covers the cost of running the club, including the club affiliation to British Cycling, Cycling Time Trials and British Triathlon Association.

Membership also provides access to our super range of subsidised club clothing, which we encourage all members to wear when riding with the club.  We also put on a variety of subsidised social events throughout the year including the Annual Dinner and prize-giving.  And of course free entry to our many regular club runs http://www.kenilworthwheelers.co.uk/runs/
