About our club
We are a predominantly road-based club, although many members cycle off road as well. In recent years, we have become more of a social, as opposed to competitive riding club. Despite this, we have members who still ride in competitions, and who can support and encourage anyone aspiring to competitive riding on or off-road.
We ride year-round in two groups on a Sunday morning, meeting at the Market Square in Retford at 8.30 in summer and 9.00 in winter. The black group rides are longer and faster. The red group rides at the pace of the slowest rider.
Both groups keep to a no-drop policy.
We have a few additional events to keep rides interesting - one or two long, summer rides to the coast - around 130 to 160 miles, a club time trial, a hill climb challenge, a week long overseas trip (usually Spain / Majorca).
We have also had successful trips to other parts of the country to ride different roads (Peak District, Lake District).
A few of our members are accredited for track riding at Derby Velodrome. We plan to get several more accredited later this year. We hope to make track cycling a regular feature.
We run a Christmas, Fancy Dress time trial, an Annual Dinner, an Annual Summer Barbecue, and several informal get-togethers.
