See for entering rides and up to date Covid rules.

Adult Associate membership is just £45 and will save you up to £10 on every EGB ride you enter, anywhere in the country.  So it soon pays for itself,  plus you can join in with all the local group end of season awards.

If you aren’t a paid member and you wish to enter any of our rides you must *register as a ‘Supporter’.  This is free and you will be allocated a ‘Supporter’ registration number.  The system will save your details for subsequent entries.  If you register as a ‘Supporter’ with EGB this does not make you a member.  Only if you pay a membership fee do you become a member.  *See videos below on how to do this.
