Where do we meet?
We meet every Friday at 8:00p.m. at our new clubroom in Coity. Tea, coffee and biscuits are available at a very modest price.
Newcomers are more than welcome, it is a social night so if you are interested in joining, or simply curious, then come along for a chat.
What do we do?
We are a friendly local cycling club offering various activities such as club rides, social rides, time trialling, coaching, turbo sessions.
The key element of our club is social cycling. Our club runs cater for varying appetites and abilities, from those wishing to enjoy a gentle amble in the lanes, to those aiming to complete some sportives, to those maintaining fitness for competition.
We have mountain bikers, time trialists, tandemists, commuters, pleasure riders, road racers and track riders so if you want someone to ride with, someone to train with or just someone to talk to then come along.
