Fareham Wheelers is now a British Cycling accredited Club. We have been able to provide them with evidence that we are a club that has been practicing excellent operating standards and demonstrating that we are fun, inclusive, and safe. Any current and future members of Fareham Wheelers Cycling Club can be safe in the knowledge that they are attending a reputable club.
Prospective members are welcome to try one of our Sunday Runs first, without obligation. You can ride with us on up to two occasions before you need to join; this is a condition of our third party insurance, or come along to one of our weekly social evenings (every Tuesday at Catisfield Community Centre from about 7.30pm) to find out more and meet some of our members. When you are ready to join, you can do so in person any Tuesday evening (ask for Mike Stevens or Kerry Sedman). You can pay by cash or cheque or online by selecting Membership Application below to access the British Cycling system.
Existing members can also renew their memberships using any of these methods. When renewing you simply purchase the same type of membership from the list on the British Cycling Join Club page.
For any membership queries please email Mike Stevens.
