Club Road Rides
Group road riding is the most noticeable form of cycling sport today with many cyclists taking to the roads cycling socially, taking part in sportives, joining clubs and taking part in organised road rides. Club road riding, like any organised sport does require some degree of discipline and etiquette in order for all riders to work together in a safe environment and improve their overall performance.
Huddersfield Star Wheelers provide an environment for beginners through to seasoned racers that is supportive and safe. We have various rides to suit all abilities and tend to be between 30 miles on an evening and over 60 miles during the day with average paces ranging from 12mph through to 18mph plus.
All riders over 16 are welcome. Riders 16-18 must have a signed consent form from a parent or guardian and have agreement that they can attend prior to the ride from our Ride Secretary.
More detail on upcoming rides can be found in the Facebook events page.
As Covid restrictions are now easing, both members and prospective members are welcome to attend club rides. The booking system is no longer in place and group sizes will be managed in line with the Government guidance in place at the time. If you wish to join a ride, just turn up at the meeting point. New riders should ask for the ride leader.
Tuesday evening rides set off from Crate Escape/ Oxfam on Colne Road at 7pm and range from 12mph to 18mph average speed and nobody should be left behind.
Thursday night training rides leave from Honley at 7:00pm and are typically hilly with sprints and average at least 18mph. It is advisable to attend either a Tuesday or Sunday Pacey ride prior to attending on a Thursday, and you should be prepared to make your own way home if you get dropped.
Sunday morning rides depart from Crate Escape on Colne Road at 9am in Winter and 8:30am in Summer and range from 13mph to 18mph. Typically there will be at least two groups based on ability and numbers. Please check our Facebook events page for up to date ride information.
