Welcome to the Velo Club Lincoln

book now

Welcome to the Lincoln based cycling club with accredited GO RIDE junior section. VC Lincoln comprises more than 140 members involved in all aspects of recreational riding, competitive training and racing. We have a calendar of rides every week of the year ranging from relaxed sociable trips through to high intensity chain gangs for the more competitive. Some members are pretty serious whilst others are training for new challenges in the UK or overseas, or simply riding socially and safely whilst steadily improving general fitness and wellbeing. We are a friendly lot and you are sure to find a warm welcome.

Our British Cycling trained and accredited coaches run a very active junior section which combines handling competences and skills with junior races which have a proven record of developing juniors into seniors, and the youngsters just love it! We are in the high season now with light nights and great weather, the Grand Tours are on TV, The National Cycling Championships have been held in Lincoln for the first time and cycling in the city is at a high water mark ! We hold a track session every Wednesday in the summer which is a great opportunity to show up and take a look at us (from 6:45pm), the kids and seniors will be racing round our dedicated 1 mile race track. You’ve read this far, so why not make a diary note and come down to Yarborough Sports Centre (LN1 3SP) this Wednesday – as I said, we are a friendly lot who just love riding our bikes.

Why join us ? For all sports and activities, there is a huge amount of information on the internet and a comprehensive choice of magazines, but at Velo, our members are able to offer first class advice and encouragement based upon decades of riding experience. Tell us your objectives and you’ll find that there will be a handful of people who can immediately guide you or your child and, they’ll support you on your journey.

To distil it all down, we all love riding our bikes and welcome you to come along and take your riding to a new level within a socially proactive environment.

Lincs League Cyclo-Cross Round 4 - 22nd October

Round 4 of the Lincolnshire Cyclo-Cross League was an event put on by Witham Wheelers at a sunny Stroxton.

A double weekend for some of our youths who also rode the Notts and Derby League on Saturday at Holme Pierrepont. A great course, but following storm Babet at a location surrounded by lakes, the water levels were very high. 💦💦 The youths were lucky to get a ride in, as it was announced at the start of their race that theirs would be the last one of the day as a local flood defence had been breached and everyone needed to leave! They ploughed through the mud with Toby and Charlie riding well in the Under 14s to finish 11th and 15th. Ollie and Oliver competed in the Under 16s with great rides to finish 4th and 13th.

Clothes and bikes washed and dried overnight and we were at it again! A brighter, drier day saw Oliver ride round 4 of the Leicestershire League at Misterton Hall. Another good ride to finish 8th in the Under 16s. Well done Oliver! 🚴

First up at Stroxton was Molly in the Under 9s. Another fantastic ride meant she continued her winning streak coming home first girl 🥇 but also and excellent 3rd overall! 🥉 4 wins out of 4, fabulous riding Molly.

Lucas and Alex lined up for the Under 12s. They both rode brilliantly! Lucas finished 7th and Alex took the title of 1st girl 🥇 Great riding guys!

Toby rounded off the day with an awesome ride to win in the Under 14s 🥇Fantastic Toby!

Well done to everyone! Next week it's Dodington Hall and some racing in the woods! Fantastic! See you there 🚴🚴‍♀️
