Somerset Road Club Membership

Looking to join a cycling club?

We are a friendly group of cyclists, with membership drawn from Taunton, Bridgwater and the surrounding area.  You’re welcome to join us on one or two club rides before joining.


Membership runs from 1 January to 31 December, but those who join on or after 1st October will have their membership extended to the end of the following year (i.e. up to an additional 3 months is free).

The parent/guardian of anyone under 18 years of age is required to complete the Somerset Road Club parental consent form.

Members can obtain a 10% discount from The Bicycle Chain (subject to the discretion of The Bicycle Chain).

Club Subscription Rates

Membership should be purchased through the British Cycling website.  Club subscription rates (including a £1 British Cycling application fee) are:

Youth (up to 18 years) £5
Full-time Student £10
Adult (18 – 65 years) £15
Over 65 £10
Family £30

Purchase Membership


In conjunction with our sponsor The Bicycle Chain, we are providing the fantastic offer of 1 year’s free membership if you buy a bike from one of their stores and it’s your first time of joining the club.

Membership will be for the calendar year in which the bike was bought, but anyone purchasing a bike on or after 1st October will get the following years membership included as well.  Membership Cards will be available from the store with the bike purchase, but to gain full club benefits, it will be necessary to ‘purchase’ club membership through the British Cycling website for a nominal £0.01 plus a British Cycling admin charge of £1.
