We are constantly looking for ways to cater for your needs better. This year we have introduced a lot of new options, like the Cycling Supporter Licence and an anniversary renewal. We have also introduced a perpetual member option for leisure members, whereby when you are renewing your licence you can opt for a five year renewal, which not only offers a discount, but means you don’t have to worry about renewing your licence for the next five years. To avail of this option, when you are renewing your licence click on the link that says “Pay with GO CARDLESS” as below.
