Newbury Road Club (NRC) provides organised activities for people of all ages interested in cycling in the Newbury and surrounding districts.

​NRC is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy and complying with the principles of applicable data protection laws. This policy details how NRC handles, or intends to handle, your personal information on its website and systems. If you are under the age of 18, you must get your parent/guardian’s permission before you provide any personal information to us (as part of a Junior or Family membership). Please read the following carefully to understand how your information is collected, protected and used.​

NRC operates or makes use of the following websites:

  •  - this is the primary website for the NRC Club. The main purpose of the site is to publish information about the club and its activities. The site is also used for registering and charging attendees to Time Trial events. This includes NRC members and other CTT members.

  • - NRC is affiliated to British Cycling and makes use of its services to register membership of the Club and to collect subscriptions for said membership. Such details are retained by British Cycling under their privacy policy and are not stored on the primary NRC website.

  • - NRC is affiliated to Cycling UK, which provides guidance and indemnity insurance to the club’s Ride Leadership and events team.

  • - NRC is affiliated to the CTT which is the National Governing Body for Time Trials in England, Scotland and Wales. Details of local events organised by NRC are published on our website, but event registration is not handled by our primary site.

  • - The Spond App and Website are used for registering attendees to Club  events via an NRC Group managed by the service. Members are asked to self-register via a Spond Club admin link or this can be performed by the General Secretary on their behalf;  this includes their own details, cycling preferences and emergency contact details to meet In-Case-of-Emergency (ICE) requirements.​

​The primary website provides links to other relevant website and public social media site, which members are encouraged to make use of as appropriate to their interests:
