Welcome to Alnwick cycling club -

 

 

We are a new club formed in 2013 based in the Market town of Alnwick in Northumberland with Members from around the local area, county and further afield - with new members joining all the time, the club is going from strength to strength. Our members take part in many events across the regional including cyclo cross, closed circuit track racing, TT events and also supporting local charity events with marshalls for the Hulne park family cycle event.

 

So why not come and join us for a whole host of activities crammed into a 2017 season which certainly promises to be a great one!!


 
Our club is now CTT affiliated and our members compete against other clubs in the region, details of which local events can be found on our website.
 
2015 saw the launch of our own time trial events hosted later on during the spring and summer months and will continue into 2016 - our TT route (M13) has been officially approved by the regional CTT committee and starts and finishes from Embelton. They have also approved a series of  Club TTs on the route - these are planned for later in the season with dates and times to be confirmed yet but once we are aware of these, they will be uploaded to this website.
 
 

Social Sunday Ride Meeting Point

The club meet at 9am outside the entrance to the Willowburn Leisure Centre, Alnwick (In winter moths start times are subject to change due to weather conditions please see  club facebook pages for more details on the day), which has ample parking spaces for anyone wishing to arrive by car. Rides will be split into two groups and sets off on a route decided by the ride leader of each group.

The routes are varied, with Northerly routes up the coast to Bamburgh or inland to Chillingham and Ross Castle, Southerly routes to the Morpeth area or Westerly routes into the beautiful Northumberland National Park, either to Alwinton and beyond or down as far as Bellingham. The club does cater of all cycling abilities but we do ask that people who are riding with us are at least competant at riding on public roads with traffic.
