Thinking of joining us?

We'd love to have you

We welcome all new and prospective members. We know joining a club can be daunting, especially with the elitism in cycling so we want to scrap that and make everyone feel welcome. 

Whether you’re a cafe rider or want to dip a toe into the world of competitive cycling we have something to offer all road cyclists. As well as the weekly club rides, BSCC are affiliated to British Cycling, Cycling Time Trials and Western Time Trials Association. We’ll also be found dabbling in the muddy disciplines of cyclocross, gravel and cross country mountain biking.

So, how do you join?

You probably want to try out one of our regular rides before you buy membership. You are welcome to come along to one of our Sunday club rides or introductory rides first. If you’re not sure about which group to join, or just want to have someone looking out for you, contact us so that we can hook you up with a buddy.

If you’ve already been out on a ride with us or just know that BSCC is the club for you then go ahead and click the button below. We use the platform RiderHQ to handle all new and renewing memberships. 

Full annual membership from 1st September each year is £12 for adults, reduced pro rata depending on when in the year you join. Junior (under 18) and Super Senior (60+) membership is £1. There is an additional one-off joining fee of £10 for all new or lapsed members, and renewal for all members is 1st September annually.

Wear the red and gold

Joining a cycling club for many is about the feeling of belonging, of being a part of something bigger. Red and gold are the original colours of Bristol South and our retro inspired club kit has been fabled to be worth at least an additional 5 watts on the Sunday ride. 

Our club kit is manufactured by BioRacer and is available to members at regular intervals through a club order. If you want to look at what’s available the site is here, but you can only place orders during the advised order windows (3 – 4 times a year).
Custom skinsuits are also available made to order from NoPinz, contact us for the password.
Can’t wait for a club kit order window to open? We have some kit in stock in the club shop.
