About our club
Founded in 2004, Velo Club Beverley is a friendly and sociable road cycling club whose members ride out regularly into the fine cycling country in East Yorkshire. We have regular training rides and events, compete in road races, TTs and cyclocross events and participate in the odd cyclosportive. A browse through our site will give you a good idea of who we are and what we do. Joining is easy – and our club kit is very classy!
We are a properly organised club with formal applications for membership and rules covering riding etiquette.
Our main club activity is the traditional Sunday club run. The aim of which is to put some decent miles in the legs at a conversation/social pace. However some recent enquiries have made us realise we need to be clearer about the ‘minimum entry requirement’ for the club, fitness-wise. As a rough benchmark if you can comfortably complete 45-50 miles in 3 hours you should be comfortable on our club run, which varies from 40-60 miles at around 17mph average speed.
The only real way to see is to turn up to the club run and come out for a ride. There is no need to join the club first. Please note that we don’t have a mid ride café stop so please bring enough to drink and something to eat. And a spare inner tube!
The Tuesday ride is a faster outing, averaging around 20mph over 1-1.5 hours (spring/summer months, after the clocks go forward); the Wednesday ride (again during spring/summer, after the clocks go forward) is for new comers and lasts around 1-1.5 hours averaging 14-16mph; and the year-round Thursday ride is race training, as fast as we can manage.
