Welcome! A little about ourselves
Based at our clubhouse in Middleton near Corby, we are a friendly cycling club serving the surrounding area of North Northamptonshire including the town of Corby, and parts of South Leicestershire and Rutland. To find out more you can meet us any Wednesday evening at the clubhouse or you could join one of our club rides or just send us a message.
Outings to challenging endurance events, sportives and fund raising rides are organised throughout the year.
Every Wednesday evening we open the Clubhouse from 7 pm. Through the autumn and winter, weather permitting, there is a 20 miles ride (for experienced riders). On Boxing Day we will be holding a (fun!) ten miles time trial circling though Medbourne and Ashley and back to the Clubhouse. While from 1st April 2020 we commence our programme of Wednesday evening club time trials.
Club time trials (usually 10 miles) are held from April to September. Starting solo, sometimes in teams, at one minute intervals, time trials, are a test of you against time, to complete the course.
Friday evening sessions at Derby Velodrome are arranged on a monthly basis and provide an opportunity for club members to try out the track and, guided by expert coaches, progress to qualification for racing. Other sessions allow more experienced riders to hone their skills through race-based exercises.
Members (with the appropriate race licence) have the opportunity to take part in road racing. Handicap races provide an introduction for novice racers in road races and opportunity to progress through the handicap levels.
