Making payments to Bigfoot Go-Ride

From September 2018 each term's coaching fees must be paid to the club via the British Cycling online payment system. This ensures that your child's club membership does not expire and their place is secured for the following term.

Please do not pay coaching fees by bank transfer as this will lead to delays in renewing your child's membership.

You will receive an email a few weeks before the start of each term providing details of how to make the payment. 

If you have any problems or issues using the online payment system please complete our Membership Manager help desk form which will ensure we have all the information we need to help you.

If you have any general questions relating to fees or payments please email payments@bigfootgoride.org.uk.


Terms and conditions for club membership and payments

  1. Bigfoot Go-Ride* does not charge an annual membership fee, instead our membership is based on school terms, and we charge for coaching services each term.

  2. Your child must be a member of British Cycling in order to take part in our coaching activities. If you are not a current British Cycling member we will not accept your payment for coaching services (see note below regarding new members who are yet to join British Cycling).

  3. Coaching fees are payable each term, in advance.

  4. Payment of coaching fees entitles your child to a place on Bigfoot Go-Ride club coaching activities for one term.

  5. If coaching fees are unpaid one month after first session of the term we reserve the right to terminate your child's club membership, and allocate their place to someone else on the waiting list.

  6. A payment demand for coaching fees will be sent out via email from the British Cycling membership system a few weeks before the start of each term. It is your responsibility to keep your contact email address up to date on the British Cycling membership system. If you don't receive a payment demand by the start of the term you must inform us by contacting payments@bigfootgoride.org.uk.

  7. If your child no longer wishes to be a member of Bigfoot Go-Ride then it is very helpful if you can let us know as soon as you receive the next term's payment demand - that we we can offer their place to another young rider in time for the start of the next term.

  8. If you are offered a free place (through our volunteers policy, sibling policy or through our Grassroots assisted places scheme) your club membership will be for one school year, and you will be required to confirm your status at the start of each school year.

Arrangements for new and prospective members

If your child is a new member we will allow them to attend a limited number of trial sessions before committing to joining British Cycling. It is your responsibility to obtain British Cycling membership for your child, and until you have done this you will not be able to pay their coaching fees and they will not be a confirmed member of Bigfoot Go-Ride. You can find out how to join British Cycling in the information sheet below, and at the time of writing the first year's British Cycling membership is free of charge. 

*In this context "Bigfoot Go-Ride" also includes Bigfoot Youth and Bigfoot Mini.


Making payments by bank transfer


In some cases we may ask you to make a payment by electronic bank transfer. This can include payments for part of a term, arrears payments, kit sales and bike leasing and purchase.

Our bank details are as follows:

Bank: Unity Trust Bank
Sort Code: 60-83-01
Account No: 20241221
Ref: Child's name


When you make an electronic payment please send an email to payments@bigfootgoride.org.uk, stating:

  • your child's name
  • the amount paid
  • which club they attend (Hayes AM, Hayes PM, Bigfoot Youth or Bigfoot Mini)
  • what the payment is for.

Please do not pay full term coaching fees by bank transfer as this means we have to manually enter the payment details against your child's membership record. This creates additional work for our volunteers and increases the possibility of delays and errors.
