Welcome to the St Neots Cycling Club website. We are a friendly cycling club based in St Neots, serving the town and the villages around. We mainly focus on road cycling but some of our members also ride off-road. Why not join us for one of our Sunday club runs that explore the countryside around Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire. In summer we organise a weekly time trial on an excellent sporting course near Abbotsley and Gamlingay and on Tuesday evenings in summer there is a regular chain gang for those planning to race or just get faster. We have frequent social evenings and outings. Whether you are an experienced roadie or new to cycling, do contact us or join one of our club runs - you’ll get a warm welcome.

Thanks - Phillipines Charity Club Run
Message from Jonathan Pang re the very successful charity ride that we organised in conjunction with St Ives CC on Sunday 24th November:
"On behalf of the Filipino people, we are extending our deepest gratitude to everyone who helped, donated and supported the fund raising event in aid of the Typhoon Haiyan victims in the Philippines. The money that we raised will give hope and new beginning to those who were affected. Maraming Salamat po (Thank you very much)"
It's not too late to donate:
Awards Dinner a great success
The Annual Dinner was attended by 47 at the St Neots Golf Club on Saturday 16th November and we were delighted that so many members were able to join us to help celebrate what has been a great year for the club. We were welcomed by our Master of Ceremonies, Alistair Henderson, resplendent in those tartan trews who guided us through the evening’s proceedings. In addition to the presentation of the trophies we were entertained by two very insightful and entertaining speeches from Andy McEvoy and Trevor Porter. Go here to read more about the evening and the awards.

Free bike safety check
Terry Davis, active club member, who is a Cytech trained bike mechanic, is offering to do free winter safety checks on members' bikes. If you are interested in taking up his offer, you'll need to pm him through the forum (username terry694) and he'll get back to you. This is a very generous offer so do take him up on it.
St Neots Cycling Club runs a weekly ride for those who have never ridden in a group before or those who feel that the faster longer Sunday runs might be too far or too fast for them. The rides will be held every Sunday leaving St Neots Market Square at 8:30 - the same time as our other Sunday runs. The rides will be about 25 -30miles long at a slower speed of 14 - 15mph. See you there!
Sunday Club Runs
Every Sunday at 8:30
Our club runs continue through the year. We leave from St Neots Market Square at 8:30 every Sunday morning with three distances: 50 - 70 miles; 40 - 50 miles and about 30 miles generally ridden a bit steadier at about 14-15mph. You don’t have to be a member to sample our club runs and they are a great way to introduce club activities. Click here to find out more about our Sunday club runs.
Sportive a Big Success
Great Weather and excellent turnout
The St Neots Cycling Club Autumn Breeze sportive run on 6th October 2013 was sold out on a day with superb weather. We could hardly have asked for better. Thanks to everyone who supported the event by entering it and riding or by helping to organise it. We have received loads of plaudits for the routs, the signing, the food and the organisation. We hope everyone had a great day. Thanks to all. Results are available here.
