The Dukinfield Cyclists’ Club, founded in 1885, is one of the oldest established clubs in the country and has around 80 members ranging from age 10 to over 80.
As the name suggests, the club was formed in Dukinfield, but the majority of today’s membership hail from the Stockport area, especially around Hazel Grove. Despite this, all the members are very proud of the tradition of the club, and the name is synonymous throughout the cycling fraternity of a good-natured, welcoming and well-organised club.
All day club runs take place every Sunday. They start at 9.30am for the “A” run (i.e. the fitter riders), and 10.00am for the “B” run (the older folks) and are generally well attended. Towards the end of the year, there are various special events, both on and off the bike.
We have a number of racing members (both male and female) competing in time trials, mainly on Cheshire’s “J” courses, mountain bike events and on the track. The club runs a number of club time trials throughout the year which are usually closely contested, but are also an ideal way for newcomers to try racing in a relaxed friendly atmosphere.
