Our black rides start and finish at the Tickhill Cricket Club. We will be on the road, riding for about 2 hours covering 35 miles (56 km).

"I was a keen Mountain Cyclist but following a serious accident while out on my own, I decided to join my local road cycling club. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to keep up with them and was a bit nervous to ride with a group, However, I was really well looked after by the other club members."

Adrian Shores

"I love cycling and when my friend told me about Tickhill Velo cycling club of which she is a member, I went along to find out what it was like cycling with a group. I enjoyed it and found I got the support and encouragement from the other cyclists to improve my cycling ability and confidence."

Diana Simpson

"I’ve been a member of Tickhill Velo since it first started . What I found appealing was its commitment to being a welcoming and friendly club and that’s the way it has remained. It caters for all capabilities and organises a faster and a slower ride each weekend. We make sure no one is left behind and the ride leaders are very focussed on safety."

Stewart Oades

"Tickhill Velo was recommended by a friend as a welcoming, social, friendly, non-competitive cycling club, the additional attraction was the area around Tickhill has a lot fewer hills than where I live - bonus."

Jenny Down

"I decided to turn up, give it a go on the basis that nobody knew me and if I made a fool of myself, I just wouldn’t go back. That was four years ago. I loved it, everyone was chatty, encouraging, they waited for me, I felt welcome and included."
