Why become a member?
Team Milton Keynes is a large club covering a wide range of activities. By becoming a member you gain access to these activities and enable the club organisation to support its members with the following:
We don’t generally charge any fees for our coaching or training activities other than to cover the hire of facilities when needed.
Our website shows the general range of our activities on the Welcome page and you are very welcome to come along for taster sessions to see if what the club offers is for you. If you decide that you want to continue with either training or joining activities such as Saturday club rides then you will need to become a member. For club rides this will be after two club rides.

If you wish to join Team Milton Keynes please select Join at the top and register your details including the type of membership you require which you select at Member group. You will then receive an email link to verify your email address and send an approval request to the club. Once your application is approved you will receive an invitation to pay for the membership type you have selected.
When you are approved you have full access to the website and must complete payment of your membership within 7 days. If payment is not received after 7 days your approval will be withdrawn.
Family membership is offered at reduced rates so that all the family can be members. Each member of the family must be Registered individually by selecting Join so that their full details, name and date of birth are recorded. This means that each family member including all children must have a unique email address. For children under 18 years of age a fictitious email address can be used.
The first family member to apply should Join and select Family Membership from Member group - the approval and invitation to pay process will then begin. This person also needs to add the names of all the family members that are included in the application to the text box About Me which can be found in Settings
Once the first family member has joined each of the included family members needs to be Registered by selecting Join and choosing Family Member from Member group.
Payment can be made on-line by bank or credit card via the membership system that uses the Stripe payment system. You will receive an email with a code to verify your payment.
If you don’t want to pay on-line you can pay by cash or cheque – please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange payment.
If you are re-joining and your membership has lapsed you may already have an account and can login using your previous password.
If you are renewing you will have received a reminder email with a link asking you to pay your next year’s subscription.
You can update your details at any time by logging in and editing your profile. You can also use your settings and profile to set what personal information can be seen by other members.
Once you have joined you will be sent a link and discount code to enable you to apply for a Club Identity Tag should you want one. This serves as an emergency information tag that you should keep with you at all times. The company that supplies the ID Tags also has options to upgrade to other forma of ID such has wrist bands.
ID Tags are no longer used for proof of membership. We plan to have a digital membership card that you can keep on your phone and this is being looked into at the moment. In the meantime we will provide Corley Cycles with a list of club members so that you can benefit from the club member discount. The only information that will be provided to Corley Cycles is your name and the year that you are a member for – nothing else. This will be an interim arrangement while the digital solution is developed. If for any reason you do not want us to provide your name to Corley Cycles please confirm within 7 days of renewing via email to secretary @teammk.com.
