Joining a bike club might seem like a daunting prospect, but don’t be put off asking the club what sort of rider they cater for, and whether you’ll fit in. Once in the right club, you’ll make new friends, find great new cycle routes, improve fitness and handling skills, plus you may even get a discount at the local bike shop. Here’s some tips on what to look out for:
1. Type of Club — if you enjoy leisurely weekend cycle rides and like to stop at a few pubs and cafes on the way, joining a club that specialises in racing will not be the most enjoyable experience. Conversely, if you’re looking to get into racing make sure the club you join enters local race series, has cyclists in the team that regularly compete and can perhaps offer guidance and support if needed.
2. Be honest — don’t claim to be the next Lance Armstrong or Steve Peat if you’re not. You’ll not get off to the best start in the club!
3. All Gear, No Idea — if you’re new to cycling don’t go out and spend thousands on top of the range kit, turn up at a bike club and ask how to use it. Better to join a club, ask if anyone has a bike that you can buy second hand or borrow — find what works and then look to buy something a few months down the line. That way you’ll buy once, buy right and get the respect of the club’s members.
4. Go ride! If you have children that want to learn how to cycle and ride better, then look out for ‘Go Ride’ clubs. These cycle clubs have qualified personnel that have been trained to coach and guide children.
