    There is something for every level of cyclist in  Ilkley Cycling Club  from those learning to ride with their families , joining in our youth activities or wanting to join one of our social rides ( see the Rides page ), challenging themselves at our renowned White Rose Classic Sportive 2016 ( entry here) to our local club racers keen to succeed across all the cycling disciplines ( details on our Racing pages )
    We will be running our  Ilkley Cycling Club race events in 2016 starting with our  two Open 10 Mile  Time Trials on the local Addingham / Bolton Abbey circuit 27th March and the Boroughbridge course April 30th .  New for 2016 we’re running one of the North Yorkshire Road Race series evening race events on April 28th &  ICC ’s 2 day team race is taking  place again on the 7th & 8th May with teams competing from all over the country.  The Town Centre Races is provisionally booked again for Wednesday June 22nd for a spectacular evening of racing from youth boys & girls through to the Elite women & men .  The White Rose Classic on June 26th is already filling up with entries & the  ‘vintage tweed’ ride is planned again for July   . In Autumn  we will be hopefully running our really successful ICC Cyclocross event again.

    We have the ever popular  club trips booked for Majorca 14th May and Grinton Youth Hostel 10th – 12th June . These will fill up soon so don’t delay in booking if you’re keen to join in the cycling fun .

    White Rose Classic 2016

    Entries have already opened  for the 2016 edition of the White Rose Classic Sportive on the 26th June 2016 . We have the fabulous Ilkley Rugby Club as our HQ again . The 3 challenging route options ( 50 , 84 & 114 miles) remain virtually the same with a slight change from Burnsall – taking all riders up the Fell to Barden Tower then onto Bolton Abbey rather than via Appletreewick. To encourage even more women new to cycling to participate or for those wanting to challenge themselves to a longer route riding with other women we are offering optional additional women only start times for each route with support riders following the group in case of any problems ( alongside the mechanical etc support offered to all riders). We are also looking into providing a “splash & dash” extra drink station at Ribblehead . Details are now on our website and further information via the BC entry link . A great incentive for autumn & winter training . more details &  entry link here 



    Our Aims

    • 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
