Membership - Join US


Membership of the Andover Wheelers is open to anyone who wishes to take part in cycling activities with other like minded people.  The club caters for riders of all abilities and whether you cycle just for fitness, or for the buzz of racing, you will find other such riders in the club.  For this you will receive  discounts at local cycle shops, and the chance to take part in any club events that are organised throughout the year. The best way to find out if the club is right for you is to come along and join in on one of the regular weekly training rides. These rides are not restricted to club members and often have several non club members joining in too.


So, why join a cycling club, what are the benefits?

  • You will find a like minded group who have knowledge and experience of pretty much all aspects of cycling.
  • Don't under estimate the social aspect, the miles fly by quicker when you are in a group, you get to visit cafes you didn't know existed, you can chat about cycling, lycra and leg shaving and not get weird looks.
  • You will improve your technique for sportives or racing - drafting, bit and bit, climbing, sprints for the 30's, improve your fitness riding with a group and pushing yourself.
  • A number of the club members ride local, national and international sportives and will be able to give advice on training, preparation and which sportives offer what challenges. 
  • You will see new roads and routes around Andover with fantastic scenery, it has to offer.  
  • The club is affiliated to British Cycling, and so you will get an introductory discount when joining them. We encourage members to join BC and take advantage of the numerous benefits, even if you do not want a race licence.
  • There is years of cycling experience at all levels available to give members advice to help you improve.
  • There can be safety in numbers and so there is a school of thought to suggest we are safer riding on the roads in a group than solo.
  • There is always someone willing to help fix mechanical issues and able to provide / sell / buy bits and bobs.
  • It can be more fun when riding events and sportives to be part of a group, share travelling and help each other out.
  • Race as part of a team (only if you want to).
  • You will be able to buy and wear distinctive club kit at very competitive prices.

All in all the Andover Wheelers is a friendly club, organised by cyclists for cyclists, and aims to promote and encourage cycling for fitness, enjoyment and for sport.
