Our Club

Our goal is to create a social cycling club for all abilities

 
We are a relatively new club formed in March 2016 by some enthusiastic, friendly (not so talented) local cyclists. We have a strong, dedicated membership but are always looking to grow.  We encourage new members to join us on some of our Regular Cycle Runs to ensure we are the right club for you (see details below).  If you like what you see, we will ask you to become a member after two club rides.  Most cycle runs take place around the Biggar area along the quiet country roads of the Southern Uplands and the Clyde and Tweed valleys.  As the club continues to grow, we aim to go further afield in Scotland, the UK and possibly venturing into Europe.

With the interests of the current members we have mainly focussed on road cycling, however, we also have some outings on gravel and are open to extending the club to other cycling disciplines – if you’d like to know more please contact us.

 

We look forward to you joining us. If you’d like to see what we get up to follow us on Facebook using the link below or check out our latest Posts

Weekly Sunday Spin

Meeting Point: Biggar Corn Exchange, 9:00/9.30 AM

 
The cycle routes are chosen each week depending on weather, participants etc but we aim to cycle for typically 3 to 5 hrs.  Details are published on our members Facebook page.

On the Sunday Spin (depending on numbers) there will be two groups; One normally goes on a longer route (45 – 60 miles) at an average pace of 15 to 16 mph.  The second group is more of a ‘social ride’ covering a shorter distance (25 – 40 miles) at an average pace of 13 – 15 mph.

We normally meet after the rides at the Kirkstyle Hotel for a coffee and cake so please remember to bring some money with you on the cycle.  We do encourage new members to be able to cycle at least 30 miles, but out on the rides we stay as a group and go at the pace of the slowest member.  Cycle Runs details and routes are posted on our Facebook page.  Cyclist under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian during the run.  If  you are new to the club please read the rider etiquette page for more info before attending a club run (in particular, cyclists must bring ID and next of kin contact details).
