Welcome to the new York Rouleurs Cycling Club website!

Welcome to the new York Rouleurs Cycling Club website!

York Rouleurs Cycling Club logo

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 16 riders, all passionate about road cycling and with varying experience and ability.

Due to growing popularity and member base we have outgrown our old website and decided it was time for something new!

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!

Let us know what you think of the new website in the comments section below…
