SRAMCC and COVID
Please note that due to the COVID lockdown, all outdoor club activities have been suspended. Some SRAMCC members are riding together on organised club events and races on the Zwift platform.
We are still accepting new members into the club, whether you want to join us on Zwift, or simply get to know us socially through our Facebook pages whilst we wait for outdoor rides to restart.
How to join SRAMcc
The club has three social media presences to help people find out about SRAMcc:
- an open Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/SRAMcc/ ),
- a Twitter account,
- and this website
We then use a second, private, Facebook group to communicate with club members and to organise many of the rides and activities.
If you want to join the club then we use a “Try before you Buy policy”. Anybody can ask to be added to the private Facebook group, where you can stay for a few months, have a look round, and book onto a few rides. If you like what you find after a couple of months then we will ask you to formally join the club and stump up some cash.
The private FB page is at https://www.facebook.com/groups/sramcc .
Every few months people who join the Facebook page but don’t join the club will get deleted.
When you want to actually join SRAMcc as a paid up member this is done through the British Cycling, who administer club membership on our behalf. Click here for the Club Membership Web Portal .
There are various options and choices to make.
- You can join the club without joining British Cycling.
- You can join the club AND join British Cycling.
People who intend to take part in many organised cycling competitions will need to purchase RACE membership. Sportive club and leisure cyclist who do not compete can choose to join BC in the RIDE category, These memberships gives you access to certain benefits such as Legal Liability insurance, a newsletter, and other benefits, and also your membership helps to support BC in it’s campaigning/support work for cyclists.
See the BC Membership page for full details.
If you choose not to join BC you should consider whether you want to obtain cycling Legal Liability insurance from a different supplier. This insurance is not mandatory for joining a SRAMcc ride or event, but it may help to give you peace of mind.
If you have any questions about a specific rides or events then post the question on the relevant Facebook posting about the event. Or for general questions about the club please get back to me.
