Want to join the fun? Wondering what will be the best way to start?

Otley Cycle Club offers a wide range of experiences on your bike, from young to old, beginner to experienced. There’s something for everyone and our aim is go get more people on their bikes. If you’re reading this, you must be interested in what group cycling has to offer or the club’s racing experience is something you want to take advantage of.

We have lots of groups, one of which will fit your needs, whether it’s a fast long run, slower long run or shorter distances we cater for all. As well as the weekend rides which can be read about in the ‘Club Sections’ area, there are also lots of informal groups during the week and on a Saturday – these are only open to members. We also have numerous club and open competitions throughout the season.

We operate a try before you buy policy, so if you want to make sure it’s what you want, target a ride and then go for it. Many new riders try out the Social Series first, which has three types of ride, but only goes out every fortnight – details always posted online.

All rides meet at 9:00 and leave from The Buttercross at 9:15 on a Sunday morning. If you are wanting to give it a go, just turn up and introduce yourself to someone in Otley Blue!

Information on all our Rides can be found above, in the drop down menu ‘Club Sections’
