If you are a member of a club, you will get much more from cycling. The frequency and variety of rides mean you do more cycling and as you do more, you get fitter. The camaraderie and friendships make the miles so much more enjoyable…and safer. You can take part in road-racing, time-trialling and other cycle events.

New members are, of course, very welcome.Taw Velo Membership Form

The best way to proceed is to ride with us on one of our club rides so we can meet and get to know each other. Club rides start at 9:00 each Sunday morning at The Bike Shed Café, The Square, Barnstaple. If you plan to come along, please get in touch. If you think you might want to join, then please read the club Code of Conduct first and then complete the membership application form, to the right, which you can download and print.

Benefits of joining Taw Velo include:

  • You can ride CTT open events.
  • Advice and coaching and all the back up and support a club can give.
  • The chance to ride with a team.
  • Club discount with Bike It – Bike Shop, Barnstaple.
  • A club dinner with Trophies to go for.
  • Club runs all year round & chain gangs during the summer.
  • Lovely kit and a great website.
  • The club organises youth and adult British Cycling races at Chivenor and on the road.

Important rules to note are those relating to club races. We do expect everyone to turn out and help – but it’s a fun and exciting day that you wouldn’t want to miss anyway.
