About our club
Welcome to the web page of the Dundee Thistle cycling club. The club caters for all levels of cycling whether you are a racing/sportive enthusiast or a more casual rider looking to keep fit and enjoy the social side of cycling.
We have two evening runs on week nights aimed at all levels and a weekend run on Sundays. The evening runs are all all roughly 20 miles over varying terrain. Club runs are open to all so you don't need to initially be a member of the club to join in on the fun.
Runs on Thursday from Invergowrie at 6pm.
During the summer months we have a more competitive night APR training session.
In the winter months we have a training session on a Wednesday night from 6-8 PM at the outdoor track in Caird park.
Weekend club runs leave every Sunday at 9.30 from Camperdown Country Park gates where a number of clubs meet and there is time for a bit of friendly chat. The Camperdown Country Park can be found just off the Kingsway at the UGC cinema. Typically the club runs will vary in length from 50 to 80 miles and will almost always have a cafe stop. Most runs head west towards the A9 towns of Dunkeld and Pitlochry.
Informal meetings are held after on the first Thursday of each month. For location please check our Facebook page.
Mostly we put on road runs but have an active mountain biking group which meets at 6:30PM every Tuesday. The route can vary although we generally meet at the Tay bridge and do a ride to Tensmuir forest through Tayport.
