The Membership Secretary has advised the Committee that there are several members whose membership is due to end for non payment of subs and who will need to reapply should they wish to remain members of the Club. The Club rule 5.7 says “Subscriptions fall due on 1st October of each year and must be paid by 31st December. Any Club member whose subscription has not been paid by the 31st December shall no longer be a member of the Club. Any Club member whose subscription has not been paid by the 31st December shall be required to re-apply for membership.”
Reminders have been sent to those at risk, If they wish to continue their membership they must act.
Some Club members are also members of CyclingUK. One key benefit of that membership is third party liability insurance, under which you are covered up to £10 million for any claims made against you for damage or injury. Now that Cycling UK has ceased its concessionary rate for senior members, they must pay the full ordinary adult membership of £48, an increase of £20 per year. This increase can be avoided by taking Affiliated Membership at a cost of £28 instead, though although this does provide the same third party cover it excludes Cycle magazine, legal helpline and voting rights.
You may opt for Affiliated membership when you receive your membership renewal letter. You will need a unique club code, which is obtainable from the Treasurer who also receives the Club’s copy of the Cycle magazine, which is available for loan.
