FAQ

WHAT IS VELOCLUB?

VeloClub is a member-driven community of like-minded enthusiasts whose contributions help build a better, more sustainable CyclingTips, delivering more to you, our readers.
As a VeloClub member you aren’t just helping build a stronger CyclingTips, you’re also funding the creation of extra amazing content for the entire CyclingTips readership to enjoy.

WHY BECOME A MEMBER?

By becoming a VeloClub member you’ll be directly helping us to keep producing independent content that isn’t optimised by clicks, page views, and everything else that can make online content a race to the bottom. You’ll help us to improve our coverage of women’s cycling, to produce influence-free product reviews, and to continue our independent reporting. Our members enable us to create content with only our audience in mind while keeping CyclingTips free for everyone.

WHO HANDLES THE BILLING?

While CyclingTips is a secure site, we don’t handle your payment information. Our memberships are managed by Pico. Credit cards are processed by Stripe, and neither CyclingTips nor Pico ever holds or sees any of your payment information.

WHY SHOULD I SUPPORT CYCLINGTIPS WHEN OTHER PUBLICATIONS NEED MY SUPPORT TOO?

It’s a valid question. But we like to think CyclingTips is different and we take enormous pride in what we do. It’s a labour of love.
We say “no” to more advertisers than we say “yes” to. We have turned down countless commercial opportunities when an advertiser has asked us to do things that don’t align with our moral values or that don’t put you, the reader, first.
Paid reviews, questionable charities, PR stunts – these are all things we need to pass on, even though they could pay the salaries of 10 people. We’re often asked to slip things by you in our editorial — things that don’t tell the truth or the full story — but we won’t. We don’t litter our pages with countless ads, blow out deals, affiliate links, pop-ups, etc. We pass up on all of these money making techniques to make this place a better experience for you.
Your support allows us to keep producing the sort of content you’ve come to expect from CyclingTips, all while helping us to create additional features. Your support allows us to maintain our editorial independence and ensure we’re always focused on working for you, our readers.

WHAT IF I FIND THAT THE VELOCLUB MEMBERSHIP ISN'T FOR ME?

No problem. While we’d hate to see you go, you’re welcome to cancel at any time. You can either cancel from within your account whilst logged in, or alternatively you can email us and we’ll take care of it for you.

CAN I MAKE A ONCE-OFF DONATION?

Of course. While we’d love you to support us as a CyclingTips member, we understand that sometimes you might prefer to just make a once-ff donation instead. If you would like to make a donation to CyclingTips, simply head here.
