Membership is  now done online at British cycling

As a British Cycling affiliated club, we follow the Byelaws, Technical Regulations, Code of Conduct, Child Protection and Anti-Doping policies of British Cycling.

Club membership is open to:

  • Adult (18yrs and over)
  • Junior (between 5yrs and 17yrs)
  • Affiliate (18 yrs and over)

Why must parents join as well?

Even if parents don’t wish to bike themselves, by becoming Affiliate members (free) they take a role within our club and therefore take some responsibility for what we do. This is to ensure that parents are an integral part of the club and have a say in the way we operate (Affiliate Members are eligible to be elected onto the SMBC Committee).It also means that the more experienced adult members of our club can feel happy about taking children of other members out on trips and on coaching sessions. Affiliate Members will be fully informed about who is taking their children, where to, and what they will be doing. It’s up to the Affiliate Member parent to decide if they are happy with the arrangements before allowing their child to participate. We encourage Affiliate Member parents to attend our meets and events with their children. You may be required to transport your children to event locations if transport places are limited. We also encourage parents to have a go as well as we will be happy to help.
