Whether you have enjoyed one of our events recently or have just been following our web site, I hope that you will consider joining the club and supporting us further. The club generally caters for ‘improving’ riders although there is a wide range of age and ability levels within the club.

There is a full program of club runs throughout the year. New faces are always welcome, please email to let us know that you are coming. We ask potential members attending club runs to join the club after five rides. Please refer to the notes on insurance below.

There is a wide range of interest groups within the club in both recreational and competitive fields. The club currently has over 100 members so there will always be riders who can inspire you to take on the next challenge in your chosen area of cycling.

Whether you are an experienced time trialist or a complete beginner, please consider joining in with our programme of time trials which run throughout the spring and summer months.  All abilities and any type of bikes are welcome!

Membership runs for the Calendar year although if joining after 30th September (the end of the season), this will not expire until the end of the following year.

We ask that all members who participate in group rides, such as our club runs, also join either Cycling UK or British Cycling (BC)*. Membership of these organisations provides 3rd party liability insurance cover. This provides cover if claims are made against you in the event of an accident. Claims could be made by other riders or road users in general. Membership of the Didcot Phoenix Cycling Club, does not in itself provide any insurance benefits. Potential new members will only be covered for their first five rides by the club’s insurance whilst they have a genuine interest in joining the club.

Affiliate membership of Cycling UK can be bought through the club for just £24. This does not have all the benefits of full Cycling UK membership but provides the necessary insurance cover.

First time members of British Cycling can benefit from an introductory discount through membership of the club. Please note that only the Race Gold, Race Silver and Ride Membership include 3rd Party liability insurance cover.
