About our club
April 2014 saw the start of the Cycle Club in Framlingham. There were twelve cyclists of varying ages and abilities who set off on the introductory ride taking a circular route through Parham, Great Glemham and Cransford before returning to Framlingham. Since then the rides have taken place every Tuesday evening, rain or shine. There are usually three routes to chose from, varying in length from 12 to 25 miles, thus allowing for people of all abilities to join in. Cyclists usually ride in pairs or small groups so that no-one gets left behind. Routes are distributed in advance but are also available on the night.
During August, Sunday rides were introduced, giving an opportunity for people to participate who can’t make the Tuesday evenings. These are usually slightly longer in length, but with a break for refreshment at a cafe half way round. The Sunday rides will also be an alternative to Tuesday evening rides once the dark nights set in.
The first Club meeting was held in July 2014 and officers were duly appointed. The Club is affiliated to the Framlingham Sports Club and members pay a nominal fee to join. There are currently over twenty members but we would love to have more. There is no age limit, although under- 16s must be accompanied by an adult. The club has applied to become affiliated with British Cycling which would then give members group insurance cover whilst riding with the Club.
You are welcome to come along one Tuesday evening to see what we are like - there is no obligation to join up as a member.
Member numbers have steadily increased to 40 at its highest and new enquiries are coming through all the day particularly through social media (Facebook and Twitter)
JUNIOR MEMBERS: We started a Junior secion in 2016 and had a few members who are now 18+ and riding with the adults and plan is to promote this this Easte with adverts in local press.
