About YRCC

Established in 2014, York Rouleurs Cycling Club is a friendly British Cycling-affiliated club aimed at encouraging group cycling for those based in and around York, North Yorkshire.

Initially conceived as an alternative to riding alone, we provide individuals with a time and place to meet, and the added security of the company of experienced group cyclists. Our weekly rides regularly attract up to 20 riders, all passionate about road cycling and with varying experience and ability.

We also have an active social media presence, including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and our website Forum, which acts as our virtual clubhouse and allows our members to help shape our club. Cycling is a great way to meet new people and we arrange regular social activities around our cycling events!

If you wish to take part in the weekly ‘Club Run’, simply turn up at 9am on a Sunday** at our meeting point: Currently the Re-cycling Centre at Askham Bar Tesco, YO24 1LW. Rides are between 30 and 40 miles in length, at a speed of between 15 and 18mph. We conclude our rides with coffee & cake at a local cafe. **Please note there will be no club run on Sunday 1/5/16 due to the Tour de Yorkshire.

York Rouleurs is a British Cycling affiliated club.
