Whilst we have members who take part in all disciplines within cycle sport and leisure cycling, the majority of our organisational efforts concentrate on the use of road bikes.
We have events and training sessions taking place every week, even during the winter months. The sections below provide a summary of the different activities.
For details of specific events, see the “Calendar – Regional & Club Events” page.
Updates will often appear on the “News” and “Forum” as well as the Twitter and Facebook links.
