Welcome to Ilkley Cycling Club

From Recreation to Racing

    ICC in 2015

    2015 is proving to be another great year for cycling in Yorkshire with the Tour De Yorkshire stage race in May bringing top level pro cycling to our county. Cyclists & non cyclists were out in huge numbers  in Ilkley again watching the riders sprint along the Grove  followed by  the Cow & Calf Climb . We were  given a special mention as Ilkley was referred to as “the capital of cycling in Yorkshire ” by the commentators.  

    As well as a great spectator sport , cycling is very much an activity  in Ilkley Cycling Club for participants at all levels 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,( entry here) to our local club racers keen to succeed across all the cycling disciplines ( details on our Racing pages )

    Our training day on Saturday 28th Feb at the Steven Burke Sports Hub , Nelson was a great success & well attended by young people and adults – it shows what great use we could make of our own local off road circuit facility – hopefully our plans will see some progress in 2015.
    Well supported Ilkley Cycling Club race events have included our Open 10 Mile & 25 mile Time trials in March & April.  ICC ’s 2 day team race will take place again on the 30th & 31st May (please see the link for details & request for helpers.)   ,and the Town Centre Races will bring all of Ilkley out again on June 24th . We have the White Rose Classic on June 28th and our ‘vintage tweed’ ride the day before . Later in the year we will be running our really successful ICC Cyclocross event again. A good starting point for those interesting in racing are the club time trials run on Tuesdays fortnightly through Spring and Summer . ( details here)

    Volunteer helpers from the club are requested at all these events – contact me via admin@ilklycyclingclub.org.uk and I can put you in touch with the relevant organiser. (more…)
