Annual Alps Trip

Every year a group head for the hills. Marvel at the photos here.


The Club

Our club is the oldest cycling club in the Sunderland area with roots going back into the late 1800's when we formed a section of the National Clarion Cycling Club. We now have 60+ regularly active club riders and are continuing to grow.
We have a long and successful tradition of sport and leisure cycling - both of which we continue today with members competing in both road/crit racing and time trials. We are predominantly a road cycling club - but many of us head off-road for leisure and racing.
New members are always welcome - please have a look at our Club Runs and Training pages. Our Facebook page is always a good place to catch up with the latest gossip and keep up to date withtraining, club runs and events. Come along to a club run, all abilities are welcome. 

Club Social Evening - Friday 27th March, 7:00pm

Venue: Quality Hotel, Boldon

We are holding a social evening this Friday at the Quality Hotel Boldon. All welcome, come along and see who you recognise without their cycling gear!


Club Training Session - Wednesday 1st April, 6:45pm

Meeting point: B&Q Car park, Ryhope

This is a training ride so expect a good workout. Groups of various speeds form depending on who is out. All are welcome so don't be afraid of coming along to meet club members and give it a go. We meet at 6:45pm for a 7pm start.

Please note we will continue to hold the session at Ryhope for the foreseeable future rather than switch to our summer venue. This is due to safety considerations and the flexibility the Ryhope course offers.

Club Reliability Ride (78mls) - 22nd March, 2015

Meeting point: Middleton-in-Teesdale, 9.00am

The club's reliability ride returns to an early season position. The ride will start in Middleton-in-Teesdale.

Proposed route:

The proposed route will include a stop at Morland which is around 34 miles into the ride. Further into the ride there will be a stop at Hartside Café for a quick cuppa giving everyone a chance to regroup after the long climb. After Hartside we will return to Middleton, exact route to be confirmed on the day.

Please note there is a £5.00 fee to take part in the ride, payable on the day. Open to non-members.


Newcastle to London in 24 Hours

Some of you may be aware that Charlie Monchatre signed up to take part in the ride24 Newcastle to London challenge in August 2015. The aim is to cycle the 300 mile course in 24 hours.

He is raising money for Marie Curie in memory of his uncle Mick who passed away on the 5th November 2013 after a long battle with cancer. His remaining days were spent at The Marie Curie Hospice in Newcastle where he received exceptional care and they provided the family with much needed support through this difficult time.

You can donate to this excellent cause by sponsoring Charlie through the just giving web page at

Thanks for any help you can give.
