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 5 - 29th October

Round 5 of the Lincolnshire Cyclo-Cross League was a fantastic event at Dodington Hall organised by Lincoln Cycling Club.

After more rain this week we were treated to a sunny day in the woods.  🌳☀️🌳 The course was technical, twisty, narrow and had lots of tree roots to navigate. Our youth riders had so much fun!

In the Under 9 girls Molly continued her winning streak with another 1st place 🥇She is now on an impressive roll of 5 wins out of 5! Fantastic Molly, keep it up! 💥

In the Under 9 boys Jude rode brilliantly to come home in 6th. Great riding Jude! 🚴

Moving on to the Under 12s event. Freya was back on her bike following her fractured knee and absolutely stormed into 1st place for the girls 🥇Fantastic Freya!

Max also had an awesome ride to finish 3rd in the Under 12 boys 🥉 Great riding Max!

Moving through the age categories to the Youth event meant narrow bridges and water filled ditches!

In the Under 14s Toby had a great ride to take the win 🥇 as did Arthur who took 3rd place in the Under 16s 🥉Brilliant boys, well done!

On the national scene, Ollie rode Round 3 of the National Trophy Series at Derby finishing an impressive 26th! Well done Ollie, awesome effort! 💪👏

Special mention has to go to Oliver, who after a tumble  at Sherwood Pines, has unfortunately broken his collar bone 😔 Heal quick Oliver. Hope to see you back soon!

Next week we're at South Ormsby. See you all there! 🚴🚴‍♀️
