With the launch of our members club we thought we’d give you a sneaky peek under the bonnet of the members-only section of the site. As soon as you’ve signed up for your membership you’ll gain entry to the members bar (no jacket or tie required) that will let you access a secret area of the site exclusive to members of Team road.cc.
Primarily the members bar will allow you to access news on our members’ activities – so any ride-outs, meetings and events we’ve organised or been invited to, such as our track day on 22nd June, or you could join our team to ride at Revolve 24. We also list any exclusive offers and discounts we’ve been given, and members will usually get first refusal on these, some of which are very limited.
We’ve also been chatting to manufacturers and distributors in the UK about giving members the chance to meet them and play with their new kit before it hits the market.
What, that isn’t enough? You want more? OK, well the members bar also allows you to access a list of bike shops and cafes that offer discounts exclusively to team road.cc as well as a host of other businesses keen to support and feed your cycling addiction. This also includes a 10 per cent discount off anything on the road.cc shop and 30 per cent (that’s essentially £20) off our awesome road.cc Argyle team jersey for him and her.
We could keep going on about all the benefits all day, but to be honest we’d rather be out trying to hunt down more Team offers and exclusives - oh, and adding new fucntionality to the members bar. So why don’t you sign up and we’ll see you at our first official road.cc Team ride-out from here at road.cc HQ - numbers will be limited and, yes you've guessed it, we'll be offering it to members first.
Tass is our production pedant, who boldly goes hunting for split infinitives, rogue apostrophes and other things up with which she will not put. She joined road.cc in 2015 but first began working on bike magazines way back in 1991 as production editor on Mountain Biking UK, then deputy editor of MTB Pro, before changing allegiance to road cycling as senior production editor on Cycling Plus. She's ridden off-road but much prefers on, hasn't done half the touring she'd like to, and loves paper maps.
