Find a cycling club near you

A guide to some of the UK's best cycling clubs

Cycling clubs are the backbone of cycling in Britain. For beginners, turning up to the first club ride can be a daunting experience, but British cycling club riders are a welcoming bunch. Cycling on your own can be fantastic, but the enjoyment, advice and life-long friendships you can find in a cycling club are invaluable.

Cycling Weekly has been going along to ride with clubs up and down the country. The meeting, the ride, the cafe stop and the splitting at the end are all experienced to really get to know what makes each club tick.
