The Club & Its Members

 

 

Each year the Club will try and arrange special events designed to bring club members together for social occasions, to provide additional training events for those who are new to cycling and to allow all members to try new cycling experiences like track cycling or cyclo-cross.

 

Sportive Rides

 

These will tend to be in the Surrey region but may extend further afield in the UK or abroad, depending on members interests. Details and costs will be made available nearer to the published dates. We're 'game' for many things - let us know your suggestions!

  

Track Days

 

Depending on the availability of the velodrome and interest from members, the club arranges sessions at either Manchester Velodrome or the Olympic Velodrome in London. There is a fee charged for these track sessions but generally the fee includes the track and bike hire plus the coaching.

 

Coaching Rides

 

Coaching rides/sessions will be organised with a British Cycling qualified coach. These will be available to all members. 

  

Club Racing - You Know You Want to…

 

The club actively encourages those who want to race to do so and will look to register and seek affiliation with a number of regional leagues.


We are already affiliated with British Cycling.

 

There are number of different ways one can participate in racing events depending on your interests and riding strengths. Drop us an email if you have any questions or need pointing in the right direction.

 

Options for racing are detailed below. Do contact the club for further information or advice. In due course the club will look to participate in both road and circuit racing in the local region. Venues where racing takes place include local circuit races at Hillingdon, Hog Hill, Crystal Palace, Cyclopark (Kent) as well as a number of Surrey League road races, these venues are made available through the British Cycling or Surrey League websites. 

 

As the club grows, Walton Velo will look to run its own club champs and competitions focusing on different types of cycling events and designated Strava challenges. Details and notifications of these events will be sent out via the various club communication platforms.

 

Please note that if you are racing as a Walton Velo club member you must race in the registered club kit as this is now a formal requirement by British Cycling.
