IntroductionThe club is involved in time trialling, cyclo-cross, road and track racing, social activities, trips into Europe, etc. We provide on and off-road activities under the supervision of experienced cyclists and qualified coaches and work with local schools to deliver British Cycling Go-Ride cycling activities. If you want to ride with an experienced yet sociable band of riders, who will still wait for you if you puncture, then ride with the Icknield. Come along to one of our Tuesday evening club nights or turn up at a club run to find out more. We welcome new members whether experienced or new to the sport of cycling. The Club room at Redborne Upper School in Ampthill provides us all with a base to meet up and chat about cycling or organise forthcoming trips or events. Its also our base for our Tuesday evening time trial series.
We are a Go Ride Club. Find out what it’s about and how you can take part. Also, Icknield Road Club members can get Free British Cycling Membership. Ask our BC Secretary Ray Morgan for information about this.We cater for all cycling interests for the young and old. There are regular and well attended slow to medium paced Sunday club rides, more challenging rides usually Saturdays and arranged through facebook as well as the locally infamous Bacon Rollers and Hair Rollers! Also regular GO RIDE events for the youth section that we organise and attend. We have a small group of frequent racing members competing in Time Trialling, Road Racing – BC & LVRC. In the spring we have run a Sportive since 2014, with our 4th planned for the 30th of April 2017. We have a strong social side, with a lively weekly Clubroom meeting at Redborne Upper School, Ampthill on Tuesdays, with tea and cake over which to ruminate about Sunday’s great conditions or next months events, even sell your grubby old wheels! Tours abroad to France and Belgium are an annual event now. There is the very popular Annual Dinner in late autumn. Icknield RC is a leading promoter of Open time trialling in our London North district, currently organising several Time Trials. The end of season Charity 10 mile TT, which the Club has run for over 35 years, has delivered thousands of pounds to the Keech Hospice and £750 in 2015, shared with the East Anglian Air Ambulance.
