Cycling UK membership: the Christmas gift that keeps on giving

The Christmas conundrum: what to give that special someone in your life who loves cycling? With 20% off Cycling UK gift membership this festive season, now's the time to give the gift that keeps on giving all year round

It’s that time of year again: with the Halloween decorations put away for another year, for many people the Christmas countdown has begun.

Working out what to buy your nearest and dearest can be a chore, but this Christmas Cycling UK is here to make it easier for you. How does year-round inspiration and advice, complementary insurance, retail discounts and the most read cycling magazine in the UK sound?

Cycling UK gift membership offers all this and more and with 20% off – it really is the gift that keeps on giving.

Perhaps you have a friend or family member who has started cycling recently to save money in the continuing cost-of-living crisis? Whether they enjoy trips to the shops, visiting friends, commuting to work or cycling adventures, members can save even more money with our retail discounts.

Save on bikes and accessories at Halfords; get kitted out for the outdoors at Cotswold Outdoor and pick up the most stylish cycling kit at Stolen Goat. Plan your adventures with discounted Ordnance Survey maps and save on YHA membership for a great value and comfortable end to every adventurous day of cycling.

Members also receive a quality bi-monthly magazine which informs and inspires with lots of reviews of cycling kit, ideas for routes and holidays and cycling tales from other members.

As if that wasn’t enough, membership provides free legal cover and third-party insurance to give you peace of mind when out riding.

Speaking of peace of mind, your lucky recipient can secure their cycle for less with a £50 discount on cycle insurance with Yellow Jersey – more than covering the cost of gift membership at £40.

As a charity, every new membership of Cycling UK helps to make cycling better for everyone in the UK, through our work campaigning for better cycling infrastructure and legal protection for all cyclists. Cycling UK also runs grassroots projects, working with people from under-represented groups to encourage and support them to begin or return to cycling with free repairs and maintenance sessions, led rides or learn to ride sessions.

Best of all, gift membership makes an excellent last-minute option – much better than chocolates from the all-night garage! Order as late as Christmas Eve and your lucky recipient will receive a welcome email with discount codes to snap up bargains in the Boxing Day sales, like a new bike or accessories from Halfords or some snazzy new kit from Stolen Goat. The full membership pack will follow in the post shortly afterwards.
