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. More detail on the upcoming rides can be found in the ride calendar.
Tuesday evening rides set off from Wood Auto Factors on Colne Road at 7pm and range from 12mph to 18mph average speed and nobody should be left behind. New members or guests should ask for the ride organiser but anything up to 4 groups can roll out on a Summer’s evening when we have had 50 riders turn up.
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 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 Huddersfield Train Station 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. New members or guests should ask for the ride leader on either the regular club rides or the Shorter Sunday social rides. Shorter Sunday rides also depart from the home of Felix the Station Cat so please check our Facebook page for up to date ride information or look out for Andrew Smithson on the day.
