Common Lane Occasionals – A Cycling UK affiliated club.
Kiveton Park – I’m not sure whether this club is still going. The website is still up there but hasn’t been updated since 2014. Of interest to those who live out to east of Sheffield. Organise races and time trials, not sure about other aspects.
La Squadra – based around Nonna’s restaurant on Ecclesall Road. Racing/time trial/sportive focus and as might be expected a particular interest in biking things Italian.
Langsett – essentially a racing team, so only of interest to someone who is already well into cycling and good at it.
Norton Wheelers – focus on cyclo-cross, but have branched into other aspects of cycling.
Rother Valley Riders MTB Club associated with Rother Valley Country Park. Link is to their Facebook page
Rutland – long established and popular club that cater for most cycle tastes, though with an emphasis on racing.
Sheffield & The Peaks Biking Belles – a women-only group with an emphasis on social riding and mutual support, though a few who race for other clubs are members.
Sheffield Phoenix – don’t know much about them, though they do promote the odd time trial.
Sharrow CC – claim to be the oldest established club in Sheffield (1887?). A Jan 2014 poster on Facebook said Sharrow cycling club meet every Wednesday at 10.00am generally about 40 miles to different location every week steady pace everyone welcome. They were spotted at Owler Bar on Sept 21 2014 so they were obviously still out riding then!
– the local group of Cycling UK and started just over 100 years ago. Rides on Sundays and on Wednesday evenings during the summer are of a variety of distances and are non-competitive.
|Not so much a club as a happening – city, culture, cycling, companionship & all free at the point of use – occasional Friday nights between the equinoxes. You have nothing to lose but your chains.|
– founded in 1989, originally (as its name suggests) with a grant from and members of Sheffield Council Recreation Department. It is now wholly separate, with around 100 members, and covers all aspects of cycling, the main emphasis on road and enjoyment.
“Moderate” paced rides with a cafe stop take place every Saturday and Sunday, 9am from Malin Bridge.
The Sky Ride site has Sheffield Area Social Cycling Group on it (with 84 members). These are a great group of casual cyclists in it for fun, social and general fitness.
There are other Sheffield ‘groups’ listed but this is by far the biggest group. You need to log in as a member for access to the site & groups but there’s no obligation to join anything or go on any rides.
Stocksbridge – relative newcomer, with sponsorship from Claremont Hospital and Irwin Mitchell. Racing focus, but participate in sportives and Audax.
University of the Third Age (U3A)
U3A has three cycling groups for older people:
I believe these groups are heavily subscribed but there is a link to email the coordinator and check whether there are vacancies.
Whirlow Wheelers – their contact details say it all – http://www.cyclingweakly.org.
Worrall Wheelers – a friendly cycling club of mixed abilities who enjoy riding in the Peak District and the surrounding area. Currently rides are organised three times a week on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. Rides generally range from 30 to 40 miles midweek and up to 60 miles at the weekend.
