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
Every Thursday evening
St Neots Cycling Club time trials start Thursday, April 25th. Signing on for the events is at 19:00 this week with racing commmencing at 19:15 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.
92 Members and Counting
St Neots Cycling Club grows again in April. As at 30th April we have 92 members of which 34 are new members to the Club. This time last year we had 36 members in the Club and 75 by the end of the year - so almost as many new members in the first four months of this year as we had in the Club a year ago. A very warm to new members Nik, Andrew , Lewis and Chris who joined in April. Will we have a 100 members by the end of May ??
Continue through the summer
St Neots Cycling Club is introducing a monthly "taster" introductory ride for those who have never ridden in a group before or those who feel that the regular Sunday runs might be too far or too fast for them. The introductory rides will be held every first Sunday of the month leaving St Neots Market Square at 8:30 - the same time as our regular Sunday runs, so you'll be able to meet club members. The rides will be about 25 miles long at a slower speed of 13 - 15mph. See you there! Next ride will be Sunday 2nd June.
Chain gang every week
With the TT season beginnig this Thursday it has been decided to change the evening of the Chain Gang to a Tuesday with a start time of 6:30pm. The weekly chain gang has become a regular feature of St Neots Cycling Club. Aimed at riders looking to get fitter, it is faster than a club run but can be ridden by anyone fit enough to ride the Sunday club run. Great for fitness or for a taste of race pace. For more details click here. From Tuesday 23rd April , the chain gang will be on Tuesdays.
Three of our members have regular cycling related blogs. Check them out:
Richard Ostler (our chairman) blogs here.
Tom Stead, up and coming young rider, can be found here.
Alasdair Higgins, two hundred and something watts and Oxford student, is over here.
Sunday Club Runs
Every Sunday at 8:30
Our club runs continue through the winter. We leave from St Neots Market Square at 8:30 every Sunday morning with a faster group covering 50-60 miles and a steadier group covering about 40 miles sometimes with a café stop. 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.
