An Introduction

Welcome to the home of Blaydon Cycle Club

Established in 2013 in the Blaydon area of Gateshead with the simple aim of getting as many people out on their bikes as possible… and enjoying it!

Dictated mainly by the want of our current members, we are chiefly focussed on road cycling while also covering mountain bike rides, especially during the winter months. Over time and as the memberships grow, we are catering more and more to a diverse range of cycling activities organised through our members forums and by the Club itself.

Your ‘Social’ Cycling Club

We have a very relaxed approach to the Club’s operation allowing for great freedom and scope in Club activity, particularly when it comes to ability levels. Far from throwing everyone together and hoping you keep up, we have a number of groups with their own activities from Easy Wheelers, Development Rides through to the full Club Runs. So, whether you are completely new to cycling, someone who enjoys the leisure side of cycling, a commuter or an out right racer, we have a group to suit you. At present due to British Cycling guidelines and club liability issues, we can only accept riders aged 18+ please contact us with any questions regarding this. We may look into youth riding in the near future so stay tuned to our website and social media channels.

For more information on the Club, our rides and how to join in, check out our FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
