The ‘Lakes’, as it’s often known, is a very friendly non-formal club of keen cyclists who enjoy getting out doing all sorts of riding. We don’t go in for committees – we’d rather just have a club get-together at a pub when needed to sort things out.
The club name is a bit misleading now. It dates from 1977, when the club was set up to provide for riders who wanted to road race – the other clubs in the area concentrated on time trialing. But nowadays we do a lot more than just road riding – members go mountain biking, ride cyclo-cross races, mountain bike races, time trials, road races, sportives, leisure cycling – the full range.
There are club rides each week, often several. The standard one is Sunday morning, stretching into afternoon a bit, but there are often also groups going out on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, depending on who’s available and what the weather is like.
