Harrogate's oldest cycling Club
Harrogate Nova Cycling Club was formed in 1971 ( 40th Anniversary in 2011) - an amalgamation of Harrogate C.C. and Harrogate St. Christophers CC and has a silverware collection dating back to the second world war. Its members, both men and women, compete in national and local races, time trials, cyclocross, mountain biking and sportives, some even coming first! Watch this space for Tour De France 2014, Grand Depart information when the tour comes to Harrogate and Yorkshire.
There are generally club rides on Saturdays and Sundays. Please see the forum where riders can register their intention to ride in fast, medium or leisurely rides. The start time and place may also vary but will be indicated on the forum. The attendance of these rides tends to vary, depending on what other events/races there are. The club rides are around 40/50 miles with a tea/coffee stop during the winter, with longer rides in the summer. The general pace is fairly quick on the fast rides. Non-members and other clubs are welcome to join in at any time.
From Spring to Autumn there is a weekly time trial league which is very popular, attracting riders from all over North Yorkshire. Details of these events are posted on the events link.
Members also participate collectively in other events around the UK and Europe, both on and off road. All events can be found in the Events section.
