The club puts on a whole spectrum of events throughout the year, from Downhill, Enduro and Cross Country on the Mountain Biking side to Time trials, Road racing and Circuit racing on the road side. Some of the events as you may have noticed on this site often take place off Island, sometimes Herm.
I would just like to spend some time to give some guidelines of what you need to do to take part in any cycling event that is put on by the Guernsey Velo Club. A potential new member shall be eligible to 2 races for a fee of £5 (£2.50 for under 18’s), which will not qualify him or her for any club awards. If the potential new member is under 18 years of age, then a parent or guardian will need to sign them on prior to that race at the venue. Entries for a race close 30 minutes before the scheduled start time. Any subsequent race in that membership year will require the full subscription applicable to be paid and all necessary forms to be filled in prior to that subsequent race.
Visiting riders who are full claim members of another cycling club may compete in up to 5 Club events for a fee of £5 per race. No club awards may be won by a visiting rider.
The membership year runs from 1st March to the last day of February the following year. Members joining after 31st July will be charged 50% of their relevant fee.
The above sounds all very complicated, but it is not really. If any body is interested in joining the club or have any general questions then please do not hesitate to contact the GVC using the contact details found in the committee page.
