See for entering rides and up to date Covid rules.
 Non-members who wish to enter any of our rides 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.
We expect to have to run our rides with reduced numbers again this year, so as part of the benefit of EGB membership we will be giving Derbyshire Group Associate/Full members priority on entering Derbyshire Group social rides, followed by any other EGB members and only then if space allows will entries open to Supporter non-members. 
EGB Adult Associate membership is £45 a year, so you only need to come to 5 of our rides for the membership to have paid for itself!  Plus you can ride at member rates at any EGB ride, anywhere in the country too.  See for membership details and joining.
