Before you apply for membership, we ask that you join us on some club runs, this gives you the opportunity to meet club members and decide if Darlington CC is the club for you.   Please check out the page on RIDING ETIQUETTE for some useful pointers on group riding and safety.


In line with COVID-19 requirements, DCC will minimise the handling of paperwork and forms.

If you decide to join, please complete a Membership form and email a copy to the Club Secretary at:

There is a Word version of the Membership Form here,


and a PDF version here.

We are currently trialling an on-line Membership Form, but you may need to be registered with Google Drive to access it.

You'll also need two members to propose and second you (no need for signatures, we can confirm electronically).

Under 18's must complete the Parental Consent form before riding with the club.  Parental Consent Word version / Parental Consent PDF version.


Membership fees are £10 per annum, £5 for under 18's.  You will be advised of bank account details for payment.

New members will be issued with an ICE helmet sticker and a club cap.

As an existing member, if you renew your subs for the following year between 1st and 31st December it is £8.00 or £5.00 for a junior. If you renew your subs by 31st January of the year of membership it is £10.00. There is no surcharge for late payers, but if you do not pay your subs you are technically not a member of the club. This may have implications if you are on a club ride and there is an incident which leads to legal recourse. 

Member Insurance: It is a condition of joining the Club that all members must have a minimum of 3rd party insurance to the value of £10 million; this can be taken out with various cycling organisations, including Cycling UK, and British Cycling. If you require more information about this please speak to the Membership Secretary or any club official.


Affiliated membership of Cycling UK, including 3rd party insurance, is available for £28 per annum via their website.
