Welcome to our Club website
Peterborough Cycling Club is a very active club, with friendly cyclists, that run a full calendar of races and events and regular group rides. Through the spring and summer season we organise regular Club Time Trials for all categories including school boys/girls, juniors, ladies and men. We also run an early season Reliability Ride, an Open Time Trial and a number of Road Races. If you have been competing, look for the latest race results and championship tables.
Peterborough Cycling Club is the oldest continuously active cycling club in the country, established in 1874. Although other clubs claim to have been founded at an earlier date, to the best of our knowledge, PCC is the only one that has not ceased to exist and then been reformed at some point. The club has seen many great riders pass through its ranks including national champions like Jeremy Harrison, Fiona Harrison, John French and Brett Harwood.
In more normal times we have three regular group rides, both social and training, each week. From 3rd April 2021 we will start with one:
- Saturday Club Ride 8:30 (spring/summer) from Rutland Cycles on Oundle Road. Group ride with an average speed of approx 16mph and open to both experienced riders and those newer to group riding. Normally with a coffee stop. Strict Covid-19 rules apply – see post about bubbles of 6
(These two normal group rides are temporarily suspended
- Early Birds ride @ 7:30am from Orton Mere on Oundle Road (7:45am from Elton Furze Golf Club). Faster paced training ride with an average speed of 18-20mph depending on the time of year over 45-60 miles. Typically with a coffee stop after around 30 miles at the Talbot in Oundle.
- Sunday Club run, a more informal ride that leaves from Cafe Nero in Cathedral Square at 9am following a coffee. Distance and pace varies.)
For those riders new to road cycling and/or group rides, our Club Captain is happy for newer riders to join him on his Sunday ride, normally leaving Cathedral Square @ 9am.
