About our club
Whatever you are looking for, whether it’s a friendly group of like-minded people to ride with on a Sunday, an opportunity to shed some weight and get fit or a chance to move on to full blown competition riding, Seamons CC has something for everyone. There’s a common misconception that you have to be a super fit cycling machine to join a cycling club. That’s just not so and we cater for all levels of cyclist. Having said that what you will probably find if you do join us is that your fitness will improve dramatically as will your riding ability and bike handling skills. If you’re already a cyclist and want to take that next step, joining Seamons CC could be just what you are looking for
Although Seamons is traditionally a time trialing club we have members competing in most disciplines of the sport including track, mountain biking, road racing and of course time trialing.
The bedrock of any ‘proper’ cycling club is its touring section. With regular weekly runs of up to eighty miles leaving from Altrincham, complemented by car-assisted days out and weekends away, there’s something for everyone.
Our social activities revolve around regular Friday clubnights where members meet for chat and tea. Most of our members go for something a bit stronger afterwards at The Old Market Tavern nearby. Our club room is the Scout hut behind Saint George's church where you’ll also find a table tennis table and darts.
As well as this we have several weekends away during the year in various guises. These usually involve cycling (of course) but are also a great opportunity to socialise with other club members. We also hold the odd ad hoc social event now and again like a curry night or a quiz night.
A number of traditional events make up the rest of the social calendar throughout the year including a number of fun "10" events, our traditional Christmas hotpot and of course our formal annual dinner and prize giving ceremony.
Check out our calendar page to keep up to date with the latest events.
Seamons CC have rides suitable for all levels of rider (see below for more detail). All our rides (club runs) leave from the front of Rackham's in the centre of Altrincham every Sunday at 9:00am (Tourers leave at 9:30 in the winter months). Destinations are planned in advance and can be viewed on our calendar pages here.
New riders are more than welcome to come along on a Sunday and try a club run two or three times to see how they get on. After joining us on a few runs the expectation would be for you to apply to join the club.
