Welcome to Skipton Cycling Club. We are a road cycling club that was set up in 2012. We are a small friendly club run by volunteers and a committee. Our aim is to offer organised group bike rides together in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales and beyond. We have a number of different rides through the week, on a Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday. Plus in the evening on a Monday and Wednesday, the ladies only ride is on a Thursday. We organise ourselves with a voluntary ride leader who chooses the route, and ensures that nobody gets dropped, we regroup regularly. We stop at a cafe on the longer rides and sometimes a cake or 2 at the end! We usually cycle about 50 miles on a Saturday and Wednesday and maybe 25-30 the other times. We are affiliated to British Cycling.
As a club we also enjoy weekends away and social activities. We communicate via our Facebook groups . If you want to join us please see the membership section. We only offer adult rides at the moment due to the size of the club and composition of our members and we also only ride on the roads, not mountain biking etc. We ride road bikes in a group style of 2×2 which is safer for us and other road users and is recommended by the Police.
We have a high quality, stylish Skipton Cycling Club kit available to members and can offer discounts in some local cycling shops .
Come and try us out first by riding for up to 3 rides before you join, It’s a lot of fun and you’ll enjoy keeping fit while riding in the stunning Yorkshire scenery. All the details are on the membership section and calendar. For other enquiries please see our contacts.
