New Brighton Cycling Club is based in New Brighton, Wirral with, normally, a social meeting at Wallasey Yacht Club on the first Tuesday of the month. We are a long established, friendly, welcoming club that is committed to your enjoyment of cycling. We love cycling. We provide regular social rides with cafe stops, short rides, and long rides. Our members also ride the occasional Sportif, most ride the road, some prefer cycle tracks. We have in the past provided coaching skills for younger riders (under 16) and parents, under the aegis of British Cycling’s Go-Ride Skills Inititiative. Although we are no longer involved with Go-Ride, the club is involved in youth coaching initiatives organised by Wirral based cycling clubs. For more information contact our membership secretary. See contacts page. Meanwhile, take a look at  our youth skills and coaching page and photographs. Currently (March 2024), and weather permitting, social rides take place on Sundays. Members frequently organise their own rides at other times of the week. Our whatsapp group is handy for that.

Whether you’re new to club riding, wanting to improve your fitness, or wishing to extend your cycling activities to include racing or other challenge events, we will support you. If you want to know more about becoming a member go to the Membership page where you’ll find the contacts you need.


Affiliations to national and local cycling organizations.

Affiliations are central to the running of all cycling clubs. If you are new to cycling then you will be new to the idea of affiliations. If a club wishes to organise road races or time trialling events, which are open to members of other clubs, it must affiliate to the bodies that regulate them. For road racing it is:

British Cycling (https://www.britishcycling.org.uk) and for time  trialling it is

Cycling Time Trials (https://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk),

Such events must, thereafter, follow the rules laid down as to how the races must be run and recorded. These bodies also provide insurance cover for cycling clubs, should any mishaps occur. Individuals, however, must arrange their own accident  insurance cover by becoming individual members of these sport governing bodies.

NBCC is only organising social rides at this moment (March 2024), so is affiliated to Cycling UK (https://www.cyclinguk.org/). Cycling UK provides NBCC with insurance cover, but not individual members. NBCC encourages all of its members to have individual insurance cover in case of accident or third party claims.

The club is also affiliated to Merseyside Ladies Cycling Association. The Merseyside Ladies Cycling Association (MLCA) was formed in 1949 at a time when women were not permitted to race in the same races as men and as a result there were few opportunities for women to race. The initial aim of the MLCA was to both promote and support women’s cycle racing in Merseyside, Cheshire and North Shropshire. (https://www.facebook.com/groups/757572184317197).

If you are interested in joining NBCC and in organising road race, time trial events or promoting women’s cycling, we would love to hear from you. You will need to be a natural organiser, knowledgeable about cycle racing and prepared to be an energetic and pro-active member of the club management committee. If you set up the events, the club will ensure the proper affiliations are in place. Contact our membership secretary.
