Life Membership - how to get the benefits of CTC forever
A CTC Life Membership card gives the benefits of CTC forever
If cycling is a way of life for you, why not enjoy permanently the benefits and cover provided by CTC membership by becoming a Life Member?

When you become a Life Member of CTC, you'll receive an exclusive embossed Life Membership card with your name and the date you joined.

The cost of Life Membership of  CTC is based on current subscription rates with a discount based on age and how long you have been a member.

To calculate the rate for you, start with 25 times the annual Adult subscription rate, (as from the 1st October 2015, £43.00), a total of £1075.00.

Then combine these two factors:

  • 1 % ( = £10.75) for every full year of age up to 71; and
  • ½ % (= £5.38) for every full year subscription paid by the member.

For example: Mr Allen is 65 years old, and has been a CTC member since he was 25. He calculates the cost of Life Membership as follows:

  • Start total: £1,075
  • Reduction for Mr Allen's age: (1% x 65 years) 65% of £1,075 = £698.75
  • Reduction for Mr Allen's yearly subscriptions paid: (0.5% x 40) 20% of £1,075 = £215.20
  • Total reduction (£698.75 + £215.20) = £913.95

Total cost of Life Membership to Mr Allen (£1,075 - £913.95) = £161.05
