Welcome to our Club website

The Peterborough Cycling Club is the oldest continuously active cycling club in the country. Although other clubs claim to have been founded at an earlier date, the Peterborough is, to the best of our knowledge, the only one that has not ceased to exist at some point and then been reformed. Although the club badge shows 1874, latest research into the clubs history, has shown that it was actually founded in 1873.

The Peterborough Cycling Club has seen many great riders pass through its ranks over the years, including national champions like Jeremy Harrison, Fiona Harrison, John French and Brett Harwood.

Through the season the club holds regular time trials for all categories including school boys/girls, juniors, ladies and men. The club also runs an early season Reliability Trial, Open Time Trials and Road Races.

Club Runs leave Cathedral Square every Sunday morning as they have since the 1800s. Two runs leave the Square at 0900. The first for a faster ride, the second the Social Ride. The Social ride is a time-honoured Club Run sticking together at a moderate pace, and suitable for newcomers and those wanting a relaxing ride. There are 2 runs on Saturday morning. The first “Early Birds” leaves Orton Mere at 0730. The second leaves Rutland Cycling at 0900. On Tuesday morning an over 60s run, known as “The Wild Bunch” takes place for invited members.
