To join the club please go to Reading CC site at British Cycling (https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/club/profile?&club_id=3529) and pay for the type of membership you require. If, for some reason, it's completely impossible for you to pay via BC, you may also download the membership form and send a cheque to the address on the form, but online payment via BC is preferred as it vastly simplifies the club's administration.

You will be sent a club membership card within a few weeks of your application.
Once you become a member you will be added to the Yahoo! Group for Reading Cycling Club. The group allows you to send e-mails to all other members and share information, photos and chat online. You MUST be a member of Reading CC first.
