Allen Valley Velo

A new Cycling Club based in Allendale for all ages, all abilities and all types of cycling. We have a great mix of members from social cyclists to sportive riders to high-mileage audax riders to regular racers to members who don't even cycle but just love the craic. There are always ad-hoc members' rides going on and more formal club-rides every month or so. In the summer months we run a Tuesday night "Hot Laps" session - laps of a 4 mile course to practice fast riding and group riding skills, and on Thursdays a social ride into the Allen Valley Hills. In winter Tuesday night is a Turbo Training night to Sufferfest Videos and Thursday is a "Peak Practice" Hill Climb session in the hills around Hexham. We also run an open 24 mile Time Trial in summer and a hill-climb series throughout the year, culminating with an open hill climb in October.
