1. So, you want to join London Dynamo?

Please follow the steps in this short presentation carefully and you'll know whether London Dynamo is the right club for you.

First, a "health warning". We are a serious club committed to performance based cycling and cycle racing. We are run entirely by volunteers and once you have joined, you will be required to at least occasionally help out with the organisation of events. Members who fail to show commitment may be asked to leave the club.

Just some of the benefits of membership:

  • Be part of one of London's biggest and best cycling clubs
  • Ride and race with proficient cyclists who have a range of aspirations
  • Social events and club trips
  • Proudly wear our excellent cycling kit

Follow these simple steps by clicking on the arrow on the right hand side of this frame to guide you through the process...

2. Come ride with us...

Join in our newcomer's group ride on Saturday morning

You cannot join London Dynamo until you have done this stage.

You'll need to arrive riding a road bike, be a safe and experienced cyclist, and able to ride in close proximity to other riders. The ride starts at 8:30am (or 9am during winter - check website) at Pen Ponds car park. Make yourself known to the Park Ride marshals who will be the ones doing the ride briefing. They will be looking after you in a newcomers group.

We usually do 4 laps then head straight to Roehampton Gate cafe for coffee, cake and chat, but the newcomer's group usually do 3 laps.

See the page below for more details on our Saturday morning Richmond Park Ride.

If you enjoyed your ride with us and would like to come again, please try our Park Ride again (no other rides just yet - thank you - they are for members only) and if you still like us, get the full benefits of joining London Dynamo by joining up on-line.

3. The Application Form

Don't sweat, it's simple!

Once you've been on our newcomer's ride and perhaps tried the Park Ride again, get a 'seconder' from within the club (ask one of the marshals) and you can start your membership application.

Use the link on this page and click the 'Apply Now' button to start the application process.

Fill in all the details on the application form. It's simple enough but if you get stuck, don't forget you can click the "i" button next to the form items for more information. Make sure you type your email address carefully otherwise we cannot process your application. Please whitelist the email address membership@londondynamo.co.uk

4. Our turn for some work...

Computer says...YES!

You've submitted your form and received email confirmation that we are processing your application. Now it's our turn to do something! We simply verify all the details you have provided on your application form. It doesn't take long and as soon as we've done it you'll receive an email so you can get on with the serious business of becoming a Dynamo!

If we have any queries we'll contact you using the details you have provided.

5. Check your particulars...

Click the link

Once we've verified your details you will receive an email from us which will contain a unique link. Simply click on the link and you'll be taken back to your on-line application form to resume your membership application. Once the page has loaded you must very carefully check your details. You can make any changes if you need to. When you're happy submit your details and you'll be taken to the next page...

6. Sign your life away...

Before you can make a payment and finalise your application you must agree to ride according to the London Dynamo Code of Conduct. It's nothing too scary but we're a big club. We are very conspicuous so when riding with the club or riding or racing in club kit we have to take extra care to make sure we are riding safely and respectfully of all other road users.

Read the Code of Conduct very carefully. Do not proceed further if you feel in any way uncomfortable about signing up formally to our terms and conditions.

If you are happy to abide by the code you will be transferred to the final stage of the process.

7. The London Dynamo Code of Conduct...

  • Obey the Highway Code
  • Ride safely and considerately
  • Never be discourteous to other road users or people crossing roads, even if affronted by rude or dangerous behaviour
  • We REQUIRE all members to at least occasionally help out, and members who are unable to do so are asked to leave the club after a warning.
  • Do NOT join London Dynamo if you are not committed to our culture and do not have the time to participate and help out.
  • Wear club kit on club rides and when representing the club at races of any kind
  • Ride a well maintained bike
  • Wear a helmet
  • Carry a spare tube, tyre leavers and pump/gas
  • Unless already familiar, learn and apply all commonly used hand and oral signals when riding on the road or in racing

8. Cough up!

This is the final hurdle!

Once you've agreed to the Code of Conduct you will be transferred to WorldPay who handle payment in a simple and secure environment. Let WorldPay guide you through to make your payment using all major credit or debit cards

9. You're in!

Smile, you're a London Dynamo!

You'll receive a receipt from WorldPay and and a welcome email from us with essential information about how to enjoy the benefits of being a fully signed-up London Dynamo! You'll be able to purchase our excellent club kit and access our active discussion boards and take part in our numerous club activities. We encourage all members that the more they give to the club, the more they get out. We're run by enthusiastic volunteers who are passionate about the club. Please remember they have full-time jobs too.

 

Enjoy being part of London's number 1 cycling club!
