British Cycling membership

Postby Philinmerthyr » Thu Oct 04, 2012 20:02 pm

Is it worth getting a British Cycling membership?

The ride membership is £24 and includes some insurances and magazine discounts as well as discount at Wiggle and Halfords.

I think you can join with the Race membership at about half that price and still get the discounts

Use the code TforL12 to get membership for half price (£12). Its from the Transport for London webpage. I joined for the third party insurance. Well worth it I think. My Rouleur magazine should come soon hopefully.

Thanks. I'll earn that back with discount at Wiggle in no time :)

Everything about the membership is good. The insurance, the maps, the idea we are building an organisation that represents our interests is the most important part.

I've just had a look into joining primarily for the wiggle discount. Wiggle are selling the shorts I want for £67.49 and British cycling with the discount are selling them for £65.99. Not much of a discount,is this the way the discount normally works?
I think I'll still join for the other benefits, but a proper 12% discount would have been nice.

I believe the discount is off list price, and they sell a lot of stuff at least 10% below this anyway, so you'd only get the difference as an extra discount. I blame Wiggle.

Is there a BC membership discount that doesn't require you to sign up via direct debit? - the credit card option is disabled when you apply the TfL code.

The London Cycling Campaign seems to have similar insurance benefits, and it looks like they do 10% off at Evans:

Does anyone know how this works? Do 'accessories' include clothing when you use the discount in-store?
