A cycling club is a society for cyclists. It can be local or national, general or specialised, members of specialist or national groups often belong to local clubs. The Cyclists' Touring Club, CTC) in the United Kingdom is a national association; the Tricycle Association, Tandem Club and the Veterans Time Trial Association, for those over 40, are specialist clubs.
Cycling clubs have been around just about as long as the bike itself and are a great way to get the most out of your cycling. There are over 1500 cycling clubs affiliated to British Cycling and each club has a different focus. Some clubs are geared towards off road, BMX or cycle speedway, whereas others specialize in road riding. There are Go-Ride clubs setup to develop young riders, clubs who cater for families and leisure riders, right through to clubs who focus on racing. Racing clubs organise competitions for members and others, including track cycling, cyclo-cross, road bicycle racing and time trials). Most competitive cyclists belong to a club affiliated to one of the national racing associations, such as British Cycling and Cycling Time Trials in the UK, and there riders often race in their club's colours. Most cycling clubs will also organise weekly club rides (traditionally on Sunday mornings), regular meetings and social events. Cycling clubs are a great way to meet other likeminded people who have the same interests as you.

This is the UK's only “fully inclusive” downhill mountain biking club. The club was launched in order to give people with different disabilities, including wheelchair users, and able-bodied riders, the opportunity to enjoy a new four-wheeled downhill mountain biking experience, promoting it as an integrated sport nationwide. We use specially designed full suspension “gravity bikes” in order to ride down a range of different downhill MTB trails across the country. By raising awareness of these bikes, we hope to increase interest in the sport, creating a more vibrant and inclusive biking scene here in the UK.
