The club was established in 1934 so we are well on our way to our 85th year. Being based in the heart of the beautiful New Forest National Park we are able to enjoy our riding on scenic and mostly traffic-free roads.
We have Group Rides on Saturdays throughout the year and we stage Time-trial events for club members and visitors every Tuesday evening from mid-April through to the end of August. Our courses may not be the fastest around, but they are much more enjoyable than racing along main roads … you just have to be prepared to dodge the occasional New Forest Pony!
As well as time-trialling, various club members also take part in sportives; track racing; cyclo-cross, road racing; triathlon; duathlon and running so you are likely to find a club-mate who shares your interests. Although we enjoy all sorts of competition we don’t let it get in the way of simply enjoying ourselves and have various social events scattered throughout the year.
If you want to find out more you can contact us via the link on the Membership page or the Contact Us page, or just turn up for a chat at any one of our events. You are welcome to ‘come and try it’ but we advise contacting us first for a bit more detail.
