Do I have to pay before I ride with the club?

You get the first 2 rides FREE to decide whether it’s for you, and then after that we ask you to become a club member.

 

How do I know there’s a ride on?

The best way to double check on the respective Facebook group the day before- the ride leader will post up ride times and meeting points.

See the links on the left to join.

 

Can I store my bike in University Accommodation?

This is probably the most asked question and the answer is

YES

– There are secure cycle sheds underneath the main flats at Endcliffe and Ranmoor, however they are open to anyone with a bike so definitely lock it up whilst its in there.

– ¬†Some people opt to store their bike in their room. The stairs are quite wide in Endcliffe/Ranmoor, and there’s enough space to store it in your room. Obviously the University don’t want you to, but most of our members did in first year anyway, and moved them out for room inspections. We take no responsibility for any fines incurred by the university for recommending this….

 

Should I bring my bike to freshers week?

YES

– We run the freshers ride first week of uni, so if you’re keen to get involved bring it along! A ride is the perfect hangover cure anyway right?

 

I’m not a member of the University – Can I still join the club?

YES

– as long as we have the correct ratios. We have to have to majority of the club as University members. You won’t be able to compete in BUCS or Varsity however.
