The ClubAnnouncements

Welcome

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.

Coaching & Training Sessions

Further to my email last week we are planning on holding a series of 8 * 2 hour sessions running from December (hopefully starting 10th December, time TBC) through to February with the sessions run by pro cyclist Toby Atkins. The sessions will be aimed at those who would either like to get involved in racing or who would like to kick start their winter training in preparation for the spring and summer riding that's just around the corner (albeit it is a rather long corner) The total cost of the sessions will be £40.00

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.

43 members so far in 2018

Having ended 2017 with 164 members it is encouraging to note that so far in 2018 (2/1/18) 43 wise and sensible people have made one of their best investments for the year by renewing or joining the Club for the first time. Thanks to all including 2 new members  who have done so and we now look forward to many more following their fine example.   2017 matched 2016 when we had 165 members and we look forward to 2018 being an equally successful year for the Club. it was agreed at the AGM in November that if sub paid before 31/1/18 cost was £20 and £25 for existing members if paid after this date

The 2018 Membership Year is now open and you should think about renewing again.Despite a few more under 40's and 30'sj joining us the  average age remains at around 43 .

2018 , like 2017 promises to be a busy year for the Club and we look forward to seeing as many of you on the road as possible and all this for only £20. 

Distribution by age of the 2017 membership is below

Introductory Rides

Every week

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!
