Membership Fees

Have you Gift Aided your membership fees?

The Group benefits from tax recovery from the Government, through the Gift Aid scheme, by around £250 per annum. Some members haven’t signed a Gift Aid Form who may be able to do so. If you think you are one of them, please download the Gift Aid form and either hand it in at a social night or send it to our Treasurer (address details are on the form).

CVAM Annual Membership Fees Can Be Paid Online

We can accept your membership fees by electronic transfer if you bank online. Please see the relevant forms on the Documents page for bank details, and remember to include your name as a reference in the instruction to your bank, to assist in identifying payments to our bank account.

If you do pay by this method, please inform our Treasurer using the Contact Form, so that the receipt of the payment can be checked. Download the Membership Renewal form from the Documents page and post to the address on the form, so that changes to your personal details can be noted and membership of the IAM checked.


Group Rides

CVAM’s Policy for Group Rides

All members should have read and understood CVAM’s guidelines and policies on Group Rides before taking part in official CVAM rideouts.

Policy For Overtaking On Group Rides

Overtaking and being overtaken is a part of everyday riding and as such should be a part of group rides. All riders must be aware of following riders and other vehicles wishing to overtake, and it is helpful to assist their progress, where possible, for “slower” riders to slow down, move to the left and possibly indicate in some fashion that the quicker vehicle has been seen and may overtake.

Riders may now overtake a slower rider within the group without being “invited” to do so, provided that the overall requirement to ride safely and legally is adhered to. The encouragement for a rider to assist the overtake by the actions referred to above remains.
