RRA Record Holder Poses with Proud Pooch

Club Wattbike Sessions 2022

The weekly Wattbike sessions are back, starting on the 2nd Feb. Last time we had these they were fantastic as everyone gets a workout regardless of fitness. Andy is a great coach, it’s a fiver and runs from 7-8pm every Wednesday at the National Cycling Centre. Perfect for meeting and riding with other members with no worry of getting dropped.

If you’re not a member yet but you want to try one before you join us then feel free. All sessions are on the rides list, please sign up to make sure you get a spot.

See you there,

Club Hill Climb 2021 – Brickworks!

After a years hiatus, the Club Hill Climb is back on our good old Brickworks!

As usual, the event will decide the Club Hill Climb champion, but of course is open to all, and there will even be prizes kindly supplied by Shutt Velo and Rare Mags!

  1. Entry will be in advance only, via CTT here, closing 7pm the day before on the 25th. This is to minimise congregation around signing on.
  2. No pusher off
  3. Results will be announced the following day to minimise congregation afterwards
  4. And finally, where possible please try and avoid warming up / gathering around the start and finish, and arrive as close to your start time as possible!

When: Thurs 26th August 2021 (First rider 7:01pm – collect numbers by 6:45pm)

Where: The Brickworks

Midweek MTB Madness – Weds 19th May


On 19th May, the club is hosting round 1 of the Midweek MTB Madness series at Kenworthy Woods (Chorlton waterpark). It’s a fantastic event and this year we’re using chip timing to minimise complications. To help make this event a success I need at least ten marshals to help out from 18:30 until 20:30. It’s always a really friendly event and I promise there will be cake and premium fizzy pop to keep you refreshed. If you can help out please send me an email at charlesdennison@aol.com and I will send out some more detailed information.

Thanks, Charles
