Youth Membership

Whilst Berkhamsted Cycling Club (BCC) is nominally an adult cycling club, the Club is very happy to accommodate competent youth members aged 12-17.  Youth members should be able to cycle competently in a group, meeting at least the minimum 12 mph average; this will be gauged by one of the Club’s Ride Co-ordinator team.  The number of 12-15 year old places is limited in the Club to a maximum of 3 owing to the necessary safeguarding requirements.  The current number can be ascertained from the Membership Secretary.

BCC has both a formal Club Welfare Officer, to oversee the necessary safeguarding requirements, and a Child Protection Statement.  Any 12-17 year old wishing to become a Club member will require parental agreement.

Supporter Membership

The club has a membership category for Supporters and Social Membership designed for partners and children. For £10.00 per year, the member may join social events and enjoy the member benefits on the website (but not voting at AGM or becoming a Committee member).
Supporters can upgrade to full cycling membership at any point (pro rata for that year).
The membership is available on our club page.  https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/club/profile/7006/berkhamsted-cycling-club/
