ABOUT US

Inverness Cycle Club is a group of enthusiastic amateur cyclists whose aim is to promote cycling in the Inverness area. The Club is affiliated to British Cycling and Scottish Cycling. It is run by the members for the members, endeavouring to cater for all types of cycling and abilities. Whether you have aspirations to race on the road, descend the downhill tracks in the mountains or just wish to challenge yourself and improve your own personal fitness, Inverness Cycle Club has something for you. Above all we want everyone to enjoy riding their bikes as much as we do.

 AIM

  • To promote cycling in and around the Inverness area
  • To promote safe cycling
  • To show respect for all road users

 

REGULAR CLUB ACTIVITIES 

The Club has a varied programme of rides to suit all abilities. For 2022 organised Club rides will consist of the following, weather permitting:

Monday Night Development Ride: This is the night we class as our taster night. These nights are open to anyone who is thinking about joining Inverness Cycle Club, as well as existing members. We will tailor the ride to suit all levels. We appreciate that joining a cycle club may seem a little intimidating but please do not be put off. This is an ideal night to try the club where we will introduce new members to the benefits of club riding. For those thinking of joining, you are welcome to come on up to three rides before formally joining the club.

Tuesday Night Gravel Ride: These rides focus on riding the lanes and trails away from the tarmac. These rides are suited to gravel or adventure bikes with fatter tyres.

Thursday Night Chain Gang: This is open to club members who are confident riding in a group as part of a chain gang. This is a training night where everyone is pushed to their limits in a safe and controlled manner.

Saturday Club Cafe Ride: This is a social ride with the distance extending as the season progresses. Distances are usually in the region of 60 miles/100 km with a stop en-route for food, drink and a chat. We aim to run longer rides in the summer, particularly with an "away day" on the last weekend of each month.

Ad Hoc Rides: Members can post rides on the club forum to suit their own work and family commitments or specific training needs.

All details about our ride schedule are posted in the club forum, which is open to all.

 

What Do We Expect From You

The only thing we require is that all riders wear a helmet and have a bike that is safe and roadworthy. Club members can advise you on this or visit your local bike shops who are always happy to help. We also ask that you carry a spare tube, pump and tyre levers. Do not worry if you are not confident in changing a flat tyre, there are plenty of experienced members who will help. Lights in inclement weather or low light, a water bottle and food for longer rides are also advisable as well as clothing appropriate to the weather conditions or the forecast.

We do not expect new members to be super fit. Getting out and trying your best is all we ask. The pace will not be fast on Monday nights and will be tailored, with the route, to suit. Nobody is ever left behind on any of our club rides.
