"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"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."
We're' a laid back group and encourage all levels of experience. If you're unsure whether or not our rides are for you then get in touch or come along and try one of our Sunday morning café rides.
