The Norwood Paragon welcomes new members and if you would like to join us we would encourage you to come out and ride with us so you can see what the Paragon has to offer. We have club runs throughout the week of varying length and intensity – further details can be found below.

The club offers advice and coaching for the novice racer and is a keen supporter of the Surrey Cycle Racing League and local TT scene. 

Annual membership costs are as follows:

  • Senior Active / 2nd Claim
  • Social

Please email us on for membership details. 

We recommend that all senior members join British Cycling (Silver or Gold) or CTC to obtain the benefit of insurance as well. All racing members require at least Silver BC membership in order to hold a racing licence.

Club Runs and Midweek Rides

The Paragon organises regular rides both at the weekend and during the week for training purposes. The program can vary according to the time of year and members’ racing commitments so please contact us for the latest details.
