Online Donations

We now accept payments or donations to the cycling campaign via a simple online bank transfer using GoCardless.com. This is a safe and convenient way to support the campaign.
Unlike commonly used online donation systems like for example PayPal GoCardless.com expects you to type in your sort code and account number instead of a credit or debit card number. The payment is not instant and uses a one-off authorised direct debit transfer but saving us the higher card payment fees. Don’t worry, we will not be able to take further donations from you without your authorisation. Please consult GoCardless.com for further details.

Please find the donation button on the Membership page or use the button to the right.

MCC stall great success

We ran a stall in Princes Park on Sunday 7th September with great success, during the Sky Ride and before the official start of the Tour of Britain 2014, with lots of people on bikes diverting into the park. Lots of new members signed up, numbers soon to be announced here. In the meantime, check out these pictures:
