About Welland Valley Cycling Club

 

The club prides itself on the range and quality of events it promotes. 

Our club event season starts in March and ends in October.

We have a series of ten Sunday morning time trials which constitute the club championship series.  

From early April to late July we have time trials of up to 10 miles every Tuesday evening, most of which are on quiet country roads. 

From late July through to mid September we hire Rockingham Speedway on Tuesday evenings

From late July to mid August we run a series of 4 closed circuit time trials, at distances of 1, 5 and 10 miles. These events are very popular with riders of all ages and abilities because they provide an opportunity to time trial in a traffic free environment.

From late August to mid September we hold 4 closed circuit handicap races. Many of our current road racing members gained a taste for ‘head to head’ racing in these events. 

We hire village halls as headquarters for all of our ‘on road’ events. These have changing facilities and, even more importantly, kitchens where we serve tea and an excellent array of cakes. Members tend to linger there to eat, drink and talk cycling.  

We feel that it’s very important for the future of cycling that clubs organise open events and we set an example to all the local clubs. We organise road races under the auspices of both British Cycling and the League of Veteran Racing Cyclists, time trials, cyclo cross and mountain bike races.

We also organise a Reliability Trial in January each year and an Audax event each September. 

Outside of competitive cycling there are well attended club runs every Sunday through the autumn, winter and early spring along the lanes of Leicestershire, Rutland and Northamptonshire. These start at 9.30am from the Square in Market Harborough.

We have over 30 female club members and we are keen to increase that number. Most would consider themselves primarily leisure riders though we do have an increasing number of racers coming through from the junior ranks.

There are at least 3 weekly leisure rides each week through the summer months.

There are many more small group rides arranged through the Members’ Forum which acts as a virtual clubroom and through the club’s Facebook page Welland-Valley-Cycling-Club
