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.

Club Time Trials season in full swing

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.

145 Members at the end of August

By the end of August our membership for 2014 has moved onto 145 . 2 new members to the Club this month bringing the YTD new members to 49 and to date 96 have renewed their membership from 2013 giving us a 73% , to date, retention rate from 2013. 

At the end of August  2013 we had 125 members so very good to see that the popularity and reputation of the Club continues to grow and we look forward to these numbers increasing over the next few months . We had 132 members at the end of 2013 and although the growth in numbers is slowing down we may still get to 150 by the end of this year 

In August  we welcomed Becky and Chris to the Club. 

Our average age continues at 43. 

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!
