Ipswich Cycling Club welcomes riders of all ages and abilities, from children through to masters, novices to champions. We hold a range of events throughout the year, including criteriums, time trials, mountain biking and track cycling..
Our members also enjoy training and social rides. Members are covered by public liability and personal accident insurance at all times when riding their bikes.
Members are invited to include their family members in club acitivities by bringing them along to races and events. We're a welcoming bunch and will soon make them part of the club's extended family. We also offer Junior Development activities for kids and social rides (Silver licence option) to include your non-racing partner. Riding a bike is great fun and it's not all about racing.
Volunteers make our club fun and will have fun at the same time. Throughout the year as a member, you'll be expected to help out as a volunteer in some capacity. The more the merrier, and it doesn't mean that you'll miss out on racing. Partner and kids can also lend a hand.
Club meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month. We want to make sure that our members have a voice - after all, it's your club. The meetings are a great opportunity to contribute ideas, raise issues, learn what's going on and coming soon.
We look forward to welcoming you into your club family.
