Local Club advice

  • Just advice,

    Been riding for years now as cross-training to rowing but circumstances mean I can't row so am planning to race on the bike. Any recommendations on local clubs? Been looking at VC Norwich and IceniVelo but DissCC is closer but am looking at a more serious club.

  • Not many club riders on here at the moment but I would think that if you want to race those would be the main clubs. Norwich ABC and Norwich Cycling Campaign are more relaxed/touring orientated. I'm sure there is one in Wymondham as well if that is near you?

  • I'm a member of iceni, it's a great club with lots of members and therefore plenty going on, lots of people race, TT and are also into cross/mtb etc.

    The only thing I will say is the Sunday club runs can feel like they become a little stale as they tend to use a set of tried and tested routes, but the start is always 8am so getting back home for lunch isn't a problem and there's usually 2 if not 3 groups so you can have a steady day in the medium/slow group if you feel like it. The fast group can be pretty ruddy fast at times, average well over 20moh some weeks, you can buy that kind of training though.

    Groups of club riders will usually be in attendance at most local events of any significance. Boudicca sportive, Norwich 100 etc. There will pretty much always be a group to ride with.
