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.

The event will take place on Sunday June 29th and will offer 100, 60 and 30 mile routes as well as two family routes, one completely off-road. Go here for an overview of the event and here for the latest news including the routes. Do think about getting involved with this excellent cause and pass on the message to your family and friends.

Club Time Trials season underway

Every Thursday evening

St Neots Cycling Club time trials start Thursday, April 24th. Signing on for the events is at 18:45 this week with racing commmencing at 19:00 hours. The course will be the Abbotsley 11.2mile circuit which starts at the road junction to Croxton about a mile East of Abbotsley village. This is a sporting course and will require the use of all your bike handling skills. The events form a series for which prizes will be awarded at the end of the season and the series competition is handicapped so you don't have to be superfast, just show improvement throughout the season.

110 Members at the end of March

By the end of March our membership for 2014 has moved onto 110 . Of these are new members to the Club this month bringing the YTD new members to 20 and to date 90 have renewed their membership from 2013 with 9 rejoining in March giving us a 68% , to date, retention rate from 2013. 

At the end of March 2013 we had 87 members and it was the end of May 2013 before we achieved a 100 members , so we are two months ahead this year . 

In March we welcomed Dave , Joe , Mark , David , Tony , Louise and David H to the Club and we hope that you will have many happy miles with us.

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.

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!
