We are happy for potential new members to come along for up to 4 rides as a guest. This gives you a chance to get to know the club, and if you’re new to cycling, perhaps an opportunity to try out riding in a group. Guests will also have access to the club Facebook page for 2 months, where our rides are advertised.
We have five different types of membership:
(two adults & up to two children under 18)
Membership payment is due on 1 July or pro rata during the year.
Members benefit from 10% discount at our sponsors Howards Cycles in Wymondham.
If you have any questions or wish to become a member or a guest, please contact our Membership Officer via our club email address.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect from the 25th May 2018, with a number of updates relating to data privacy and protection.
To summarise our clubs’ position in relation to this:
By inputting your data to apply for or renew membership you are effectively consenting to sharing your details with both British Cycling and HWVC. Under the new GDPR legislation, British Cycling are considered to be the “Data Controller”, and HWVC are the “Data Processors”.
Within HWVC, only the Club Secretary, Membership secretary and Treasurer have access to club member details via secure login, this is used to keep track of membership renewal status and new member applications. It is not permissible for us to share your data with any 3rd party for any reason, including marketing purposes, without your explicit agreement.
We do not need to hold any separate data base on any computer or other device for club administration, nor do we keep paper records of club members and their details.
One other area to mention specifically is social media. As a club member your information may be shared on the club website, via social media (including our Facebook page), or possibly emails sent by the club. This data will only be shared in the event that you are a club member, have participated in a race, challenge, club ride, or club event, or have recorded a major achievement. It may also include photos or video footage. This data will be limited to your name, and details of your achievement. Limited further information about you may be included; for example, whether you have participated in a specific race, challenge or club ride or club event or again have recorded a major achievement.
If you have any questions regarding either the Our Club or Your Privacy, please contact the Membership Secretary before you make your application, via our club email address.
