Voted 2018 HSBC Go-Ride Club of the Year and runners up for 2019 Club of the Year at the Welsh Cycling Awards, Whitchurch Cycling Club was established in June 2016 with the aim of encouraging families to enjoy cycling together.
Under the umbrella of the Whitchurch Rugby Sports and Social Club hub for Sports in North Cardiff, we are a friendly club, focusing on inclusivity. We aim for our members to experience as broad a variety of cycling disciplines as possible no matter what their age or ability.
Our members range from age 3 to 50+ and we have a busy calendar of events throughout the year ranging from coached sessions, Club Rides, and training sessions to fun social events both on and off the bike.
If you wish to make your cycling a little more competitive we also run sessions training towards Cyclocross, Mountain Bike Cross Country, Grass Track and Freewheel Closed Circuit racing.
Our second birthday saw the launch of Adult Club Rides as a regular new feature. We offer weekend rides going out all throughout the year. In addition there are seasonal sessions. The summer offers weekday evening rides, hilly time trial sessions and monthly training sessions at Maindy track, while the winter offers group indoor turbo training sessions and also some midweek afternoon rides. Plenty of ad-hoc rides also going out and opportunities for group entries and training for sportives and other events.
2019 see’s the introduction of the newest arm to our club and Cardiff’s newest Mountain Bike club – DirtbagsMTB. Dirtbags offer informal riding for adults and more experienced younger riders in an off road environment such as natural trails, trail centres and skills parks. Ideal for those who want to take their skills a bit further and have a sense of adventure!
