Who are we ?
The Fenland Clarion Cycling Club has its home in Helpston, just north of Peterborough and close to Stamford and The Deepings. Membership puts you at the heart of the local cycling community with riders of all ages enjoying cycling at all levels. Our members benefit from being able to take part in organised social events, leisure rides and club runs, time trial, grass track and road racing, junior coaching and more.
For those new to club cycling, why not come along to one of our popular Club Runs? These gentle rides take place on Sunday mornings throughout the year and leave from Helpston on a circular route with a welcoming coffee shop along the way. We always ride "at the pace of the slowest rider" so you needn't worry about getting dropped or left behind. Club Runs are a great way to enjoy some of our fantastic local riding and strike up some new friendships along the way.
For the sporting rider, why not give our Wednesday evening Bluebell time trial a go? Throughout the late Spring and Summer a 10 mile circular route around Helpston starts and ends on the Heath with a hot cup of tea from our famous tea urn. The Bluebells are a central part of club life and are as much about the social event as they are the racing. Many members will turn up to chat and mix with friends even if they are not racing. This is another great way to mix with clubmates and strike up new friendships.
The club is more than racing and club runs, it is a social network where people get to meet other like minded individuals. In addition to the organised events, many riders use the Club as a hub to organise their own leisure or training rides with groups of friends and club mates. With 120 members, there is likely to be someone of similar age and ability to you. Take a look through some of our "Crooked Wheel" magazines and see what we get up to.
Above all the club is about having fun and socialising with like minded people. Come along and join us and see what we're all about.
