Bolsover & District Cycling Club was formed in 2006 and is a multidisciplinary cycling club providing opportunities for all in a range of competitive and non-competitive cycling activities including Audax, BMX, cyclo-cross, cycle speedway, mountain biking, time trials, track and touring. We run a programme of regular road and mountain bike rides throughout the year, as well as a number of other rides and events, including an annual ride to the coast, a round of the Notts & Derby Cyclo Cross League, a programme of organised family rides and a number of Audax events.
We are affiliated to British Cycling, British Schools Cycling Association (BSCA), the Cyclists’ Touring Club (CTC), IMBA UK and Notts and Derby Cyclo Cross League.
The club is part of British Cycling’s ‘Go-Ride’ network of child-friendly clubs, and we often promote a wide range of coaching activities and fun races for Under 16’s – more info can be found on our Go-Ride pages.
The Club has seven British Cycling accredited (level 2) coaches and a very experienced level 3 coach and was awarded Sport England’s clubmark accreditation in March 2010. This ensures that our junior section is run in line with all child safety guidelines.
We have recently secured over £9,000 from Awards for All, which will enable the club to develop it’s coaching activities, develop links with local schools, purchase a number of cyclo-cross bikes for club members to use as well as equipment to run cyclo-cross and mountain bike races.
The club has a social get together over some real ale on the first Monday in every month held at The Hill Top Working Men’s Club, Quarry Rd, Bolsover, Chesterfield S44 6NT. For exact dates and times please visit the calendar section of the website.
In 2012 the club was awarded “Club of The Year” in the Bolsover & District Sports Awards, worthy recognition of the efforts of its members.
We have over 300 members aged 5 to 75 and although the club is centred around Bolsover, we have a wide area of membership covering the surrounding towns and villages including Chesterfield, Mansfield, Worksop, Shirebrook, Clowne, Barlborough, Renishaw, Staveley, Creswell, Whitwell, Tibshelf, Newton, South Normanton and more. Wherever you are based you can be rest assured that there will be a group of other cyclists in your area that are already members of this great and friendly club that we can put you in touch with.
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in cycling and new members are always welcome.
