British Cycling Membership and Licences

British Cycling Membership and Licences

To be honest, unless your a serious racer and need a race license I never thought it worthwhile to join British Cycling. It seems times are changing and the various levels of BC membership have a number of worthwhile bonuses to help us Mountain Bikers do what we love.

Now I wont bullshit about, some of the Membership benefits are a joke at best, but from only £13.50 a year there seem to be some real benefits that we can all get our hands on.

I will run you through the different membership levels.

Ride membership: £24 a year
They say its ideal for commuters and hobby riders – I think it suits any mountain bike riders who don’t need (or want) a race license.

Benefits include:
Up to £10m third party liability insurance.
Free legal support and advice from the BC legal team.
Save a minimum of 12% at the British Cycling Wiggle shop
Save 10% at Halfords stores nationwide
Pre-sale and discounted tickets to major UK cycle events
Save up to £23 a year on magazines including Cycling Plus, Procycling and Mountain Biking UK (no dirt mag tho :()
Save 40% on AA Membership
Get a free copy of Rouleur and Privateer worth up to £10 each
Save 10% on bike insurance – guaranteed lowest price bike insurance
Save 10% on Cycle Rescue, an emergency roadside recovery service for cyclists

Then they have various race license memberships.
Starting with the Race Bronze membership. This is £13.50 a year and includes most of the benefits of the Ride membership.
The most expensive and comprehensive membership they offer is the Race gold membership which is £64 a year and has the additional benefits of a full racing license and 15% off bike insurance.

If you need a race license or just like the sound of these additional benefits then why not jump on-board with the British authority for bicycle racing. You might even be able to convince them that Downhill mountain bike racing is the premier form of bicycle competition! (which we already know) 😉

Danny Hart – DH World Champion 2011

Danny Hart – DH World Champion 2011

The most amazing DH run ever?
Danny Hart wins by over 11 seconds in the rain at Champery, the worlds steepest DH track.
Even has time for a trademark whip near the bottom of the course!
Video of his winning run below.

No words….

Plus whilst most news agencies have totally ignored DH Mountain Biking once again in favour of reporting on the world rowing champs / mediocre road racing / fly fishing – finally a tiny bit of recognition as the clip makes it onto The Guardian’s (one of the UK’s better newspapers) online edition for Best Sporting video of the week.
