Renewing Youth Riders (A-E) can now do everything online, just select 'Youth Under 18 (Renewals Only)' membership option when applying for their licences.
New-Member Youth Riders (A-E) should ask their Parents/Carers to email the West Glos Membership Sec. (admin@wgdfmcc.org.uk), or come to a club meeting, for the Free Youth membership Code they will need before applying for a licence.


2022 Licences:

Available from ACU Member's Portal on their website.

You can select West Glos Membership at the same time.

(Speed event licences can include Trials if you tick the additional discipline box - think MX and Enduro bikes being able to enter the Hill climb!)

Membership Types:

Associate Members - New members will become Associate members. At a later date some may be voted in when they become...

Full Members - Have voting rights. Both types are £5 per calendar year.

Life Members - Make a major difference in the club and you'll get there! (In a positive way, we mean.)

The Data Protection Act (GDPR)

During the year members may be contacted to ensure you have the opportunity to update preferences and understand how we use data that you provide. Until then the default setting will apply, eg. we will use your email address/telephone number/post address only for membership related contact. Your details are held in an encrypted membership database.

Why become a Member:

  • To obtain an ACU competition licence you need to be a member of an ACU club, so why not your local club, us.
  • To ride in our closed to club events you will need to be a member. (CtC equates to 'Restricted' in ACU speak, but don't worry, we aim for our events to be Open so members of other clubs in the UK can ride too.)
  • Feel a part of the Biking community.
  • To support your fellow enthusiasts.
  • To help out as an official, other than a Marshal, you need to be a member.

Ways to become a Club member:

Preferred option, (And Covid Friendly!) Join using your ACU member login while applying for your licence. The system allows you to select our club and the fee of £5 is automatically added. (Free for renewing Youth members!) We will authorise your membership and you will be able to pay by credit card for both Licence and Club membership in one transaction.

Or, Visit one of our Club nights. New members and visitors are welcome to just turn up and can choose to join then, or contact our Membership Secretary, using admin@wgdfmcc.org.uk. You may also apply by post including a cheque for £5 and contact details to:

NOTE: West Glos & Dean Forest MCC reserve the right to refuse membership applications. (eg. Non-locals who have no intention of riding or being involved in any of our events may be refused! or not agreeing to Club's Constitution.)

Club's Rules/constitution etc. can be viewed at Club meetings or by contacting the Secretary at secretary@wgdfmcc.org.uk

How to get Competition Licences:

If not done online then you need a reference code to prove you are a club member to get a Competition Licence. The membership secretary issues this code with your Club Membership card. You may then either complete the Licence form (Trials Only or Enduro as well) and post off. Alternatively, you can purchase online using the code. You may also apply for membership OnLine while applying for the Competition Licence. (Note you may wish to fill out the Club Membership form before attending a meeting or posting.)

On-Line ACU Licence And Membership at same time

If you have an ACU Member account or sign up for one, you may choose the renew/apply for option then you have the option of joining West Glos for the current year. If you already have a reference code you can skip this option.

Please note that processing depends on our volunteer officials having time to get to their emails, so please be patient, email after a few days if you haven't heard back.

Who is the Membership Sec:

Currently it is Colin Jones, he responds best to emails using admin@wgdfmcc.org.uk so that he can answer queries at his leisure rather than use phones or post.
