Welcome to Ilkley Cycling Club

The largest Cycling Club in the UK with over 1000 members

From Recreation to Racing


    Our Aim

    • To promote cycling to the people of Ilkley (and surrounding areas) and to those who cycle in or near our town
    • To provide an avenue for club members to race and compete by having affiliations to governing bodies (British Cycling,  Cycling Time Trials, MTB, cyclocross etc)
    • To provide a focus for recreational cyclists and promote the sport at grassroots level.
    • To be open to all, and to encourage cycling for everyone


    What a  Summer awaits us at Ilkley Cycling Club  as we welcome the Tour de France and Le Grand Depart to our special corner of Yorkshire.

    To start what will be a wonderful week, entries are now full  for the White Rose Classic 2014 on  Sunday 29th June (details here) , which will kick off a week of club activities leading up to the Grand Depart the following weekend. To support all the visiting cyclists, including those riding in the White Rose Classic, Ilkley Cycling Club will be putting on a full week of events and activities alongside other local agencies and businesses. The club will be running a series of daily “club rides” where everyone is welcome. In the evenings we have our own Town Centre Races planned for Tuesday 1st July ,  Wednesday 2nd will be the famous Otley Town Centre races, and  Thursday 3rd will see the TDF team presentation in Leeds . Ilkley has been chosen as a first tier Spectator “hub”   and the weekend Stages 1 & 2 will see Ilkley and our surrounding area full of cyclists , families & friends enjoying the TDF spectacle & all the festivities planned around it .

    Ilkley is of course crammed full of excellent pubs and restaurants, and we will work with them to make sure it will be a great atmosphere all week with a series of guest speakers, party-nights, and lots of other things to do.

    At the heart of this, we are organising a campsite at East Holmes Fields for the whole week, using facilities at the Rugby Club. The campsite is in a beautiful riverside location, next to the famous Ilkley Lido, with views of the Cow and Calf, and a 5 minute stroll into the heart of Ilkley.    See  here for more details and secure online booking.

    Come and join us in celebrating  the world’s biggest annual sporting event arriving on our doorstep!
