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.
The 0900 Sunday Social Club ride had been poorly supported for some months (June 2017), so would not be a regular feature for now. A more energetic run does leave the Square at around 0900 on most Sundays. 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.
