How To Join Apollo CT
Its easy. You basically need to do two things.
1…JOIN CYCLING IRELAND Our governing body is Cycling Ireland who are affiliated with the U.C.I. (Union Cycliste International) that’s the same union that the pros ride under which means you’re about to join the same club as Alberto Contador, pretty cool huh.
Joining Cycling Ireland provides you with insurance, all Apollo members are required to take out this membership so that all our riders ride insured. Membership can cost from £5 for a junior to £20 for a club rider to £120 for a full racing license. The choice is yours. The different memberships are explained here http://www.cyclingireland.ie/page/membership/types-of-membership
Go to Cycling Ireland’s website http://www.cyclingireland.ie/ and have a wee look around and you’ll find a link to JOIN on the top right hand side of the page, click that and it’ll explain the types of memberships available. Make your choice and start the process, along the way you will be presented with a choice to join a club, choose Apollo CC under County Armagh.
After the process is finished Cycling Ireland will approve you then pass your application on to me, the Club Secretary and I approve your membership also.
2…PAY APOLLO CLUB DUES Next thing you do is pay club dues which are free for juniors, under 16, and £15 for adults. Put £15 in an envelope with your name on it and give it to any committee member and that’s it your in.
Both CI and Apollo memberships run from January to December. So if you join in September you’ll have to renew in January again.
