B&DCC are proud to introduce a reliability trial to the ride family.

The ride headquarters will be the Palterton Welfare, Back Lane, Palterton. S44 6UN. The entry fee for this event will be £5.00 which will be available via online payment. On the day entries maybe available depending on the level of pre entries as because it's our first running of this event we will be limiting the numbers.

After the fantastic turn-out for November’s Cycle Jumble we have another evening of fun lined up for the next social on Monday the 5th December (Hilltop Social Club at 8pm).

2017 sees high numbers of club riders entered in events such as the Coast to Coast in a Day, Wales in a Day, Tour of the Highlands and Mountain Mayhem. These long events need you to be ready for them. So what's involved in training for long rides?

So if you've got your training right for your long ride, that's not the end of the story. You need to sort your bike and kit!

Here's what's hot at B&DCC week ending the 20th of November:

Derby Velodrome have published their Christmas Track Programme, another great option for Winter Training!

Bypass Bashing is fully back and up and running every Thursday Evening on the Staveley Bypass.

My Australian friend says "Britain has two seasons, Summer and The Other Three All At Once, and Summer is generally a weekend in May." He's not far wrong. Time for Winter Training.

We realise that for many less experienced or mechanically savvy riders, being stuck at the roadside when your bike lets you down, can often mean frustration, or worse...that embarrassing phone call for a lift. So the club has arranged a Roadside Repairs Workshop. Click here for more details.

Now we've had two club Zwift rides, interest is building in the club, so here is some more information on getting started with Zwift.
