What do we do.......
Regular Club Ride
A traditional club ride of approximately 50 miles. Sometimes hilly, sometimes flat. Sometimes fast, sometimes slow. You get the idea........All rides start from Malton Market Place: Sunday at 9am
Tues evenings: Training rides of up to 1hr 30, meet at One Stop, Norton at 6:15pm.
For those that fancy something a bit faster, we have a "chaingang" on Thursday evenings during winter when our club Time Trials are not on. These start at 6:25pm from Swinton.
Massed start road racing on open roads with usually up to 70 riders.
A personal licence is required to ride under the umbrella of British Cycling, "The League International" or the "League of Veteran Racing Cyclists".
To train for such events we ride "Chain Gang", a regular route once a week during the winter months where we ride in a controlled group taking turns on the front. We try to keep our average to above 20mph for this undulating course, so its not for the faint hearted!
An individual or team is timed over a set distance. An "all out" effort is required to better your own time.
All Club Time Trials are held under the Cycling Time Trials umbrella.
Track Riding at Manchester Velodrome
A few hours indoors on a cold winters day keeps the speed in the legs.
