How do I get into racing?
The simplest form of racing is Time Trailing (TT). The club runs a series of TT's on Tuesday evenings throughout the summer, where you can just turn up and give it a go. Road racing is a little different, they usually require you to be a member of a racing organisation (BC, TLI, LVRC) and to be fairly confident at riding in a group. If you chat with an experienced club member, they can point you in the right direction.
Can I get advice about buying a bike from the club?
Most people in the club will volunteer their opinion (usually over social media). But if you want professional and service, our sponsor Alf Jones Cycles will be happy to help. Club members get special offers and exclusive discounts.
