Join a cycling club
None of us can know it all - fellow club members will become a wealth of information on topics like where to ride, how to train - or maybe even how to enter your first race. Often, cyclists that have been riding the same roads for years can benefit from a groups knowledge of traffic conditions, prevailing wind - and even what route is easiest on the eye.
Joining a cycling club is a great way to get the most out of your cycling. Whether you are a seasoned racer or a complete beginner, there is nothing better than riding with like-minded cyclists to develop your skills and challenge yourself. With over 1500 cycling clubs affiliated to British Cycling, there is a club to suit everyone, ranging from informal groups who ride for leisure, Go-Ride clubs that cater for young people right through to competitive racing teams. Every club offers a unique experience of cycling.
Some clubs are involved across all the cycling disciplines, while others specialise in areas such as road or track cycling, MTB, BMX or cycle speedway.
