Arranging rides

Most North Road rides are now organised or publicised through Discord. Once you've joined the North Road discord server, you'll have access to various channels for groups at all levels. To cut the amount of chatter, just mute notifications on the channels of least relevance to you.

There are links to download the Discord app and join the NRCC Discord server on the Member's Area page (password required). You can also access Discord through a web browser.

You can download the Discord app for Android, iOS or Windows

Reporting Potholes

Reporting potholes to the council gets them fixed faster and could prevent an accident.
