We Are Back!!!

on Mon, 10/05/2021 - 20:14
We Are Back!!! From Monday 17th May we will re-start our Club Runs.
All Club Runs will be back to meeting outside The Bicycle Lounge. I appreciate everyone has been organising their own rides with fellow club members & friends over the last 14 months, to keep the group numbers down etc. Which has been amazing! Thank you!
Meeting outside the shop is the home of The Harry Middleton Cycling Club & our meeting point. I hope to revive the Club Runs from day one.
Sunday Club Runs will resume from Sunday 23rd May.

Club trip to Wales 2019

on Fri, 21/12/2018 - 13:51

I have booked Foel Ortho near Bala again for 28/29th June 2019 for the club trip.

We will have the farmhouse, bunkhouse and treehouse. The cost will be £80 to cover both nights accomodation and breakfast. Cash to the shop or via PayPal at

We can eat out both nights, The Lake Vyrnwy Tavern has always been very good or a BBQ if we find a willing chef.

If you get there early you can ride on Friday. The main ride will be Saturday. A Sunday ride is an option for those who want one.

Great last minute

A Group Local Loop. Sun 2nd Dec 2018.

on Fri, 30/11/2018 - 22:46

Looks like Ive been 'volunteered' by the captain to assist in sorting the A group out along with Pollers and John Pout. They are both 'unavailable' this weekend so it looks like I'm the seat. Personally I'm more of an A/B rider at the mo but hey ho!

Weather permitting looking to stay local ish, 55 miles with a few lumps and bumps.


55 miles in total.
2.2k elevation.


See you sunday.

Not sure how numbers will be this week with the club trip etc. Conscious of the England match at 1pm, I want to get out and back for beers and football.

Going to take a flat ish route out over to Tockholes where we then head up and up over Belmont and loop back though to home.

70 miles shop to shop. 
3.5k of climbing.

Pace will be a sensible A Pace or a strong, 'pushed' B Pace.

Knott End / Fleetwood / Blackpool Loop.
100 miles
18.5mph avg
​8am meet @ TBL (Back by 2pm)

Done my fair share of lumps and bumps recently so planing to enjoy the sun and skirt round the cost tomorrow.

Plan will be meet at the shop for 8am, deprt by 8.05 prompt. Head up through Preston to Knott End for a cafe stop before ​looping round to the Fleetwood peninsula and returning down through Blackpool and Lytham St Annes. Finish with a beer in the sun in Ormskirk!!!

Pace will be A group Pace although due to the lack of lumps, strong B group riders wanting to push themselves should be fine.
