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.

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.
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!
