Based in Leicester, the Ratae Road Club provides opportunities for all types of cyclist. Whether you are interested in Time Trialling, Road Racing, regular weekend or mid-week social rides – everyone is welcome. The Club organises a number of social events throughout the year and there is a monthly luncheon club, for those who wish to get off their bikes once in a while.
A regular cycle run for riders of every capability leaves from outside Webster’s Cycles, Wigston at 9.00 am on Sundays and at 9.30 am on Wednesdays. There is a chain gang that leaves from Mill Lane, Wigston at 9.00am on Saturdays at certain times of the year.
Time Trialling provides the back bone to the Club’s racing activities with early season time trials on an undulating course through Gilmorton, Walton and Bruntingthorpe, a competitive series on the same course in May/June/July, and an ‘Open’ event in September on the Six Hills.
