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. Click here to find out more about our Sunday club runs.

149 members so far in 2017

Having ended 2016 with 167 members it is encouraging to note that so far in 2017 (12/6/17) 149 wise and sensible people have made one of their best investments for the year by renewing their subscription to SNCC. Thanks to all including 23 new members  who have done so and we now look forward to many more following their fine example.   2016 was , by far, our best membership numbers for many a year and it would be good if we could in 2017 exceed 2016

The 2017 Membership Year is now open and if you have not renewed yet then why not do so as soon as possible. Average age remains at around 43 , despite a few more joining in their 20's and 30's and even a couple of under 18's. 

2017 , like 2016 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 2016 membership is below 

Under 18 3
18 - 29 20
30-39 39
40-49 64
50-59 21
60+ 19

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!
