SSC Thirsk and Sowerby Cycling Club

About Us

We're a small informal club originally formed by a group of friends living in the market town of Thirsk and Sowerby, North Yorkshire. Sharing a common passion of cycling and trying to beat each other up the nearest hill or any known Strava segment. We started the Sowerby Sunday Club Strava Club in early 2014 with less than 10 members. Since then we have grown in size and became affiliated with British Cycling in October 2015 being the first club in Thirsk and Sowerby to do so. We are now 30+ strong and growing every year.

Our main organised group rides are Sunday mornings of 40-100 miles depending on the time of year and terrain. The 1st Sunday of the month traditionally is where all members are encouraged to come. We also have a Wednesday night ride most weeks throughout the year.

Our speed varies depending on the group and route but is always 16mph plus, upto 24mph on announced team time trial efforts. We aim to enter a few sportives each year and organise trips abroad, so far we've been to the Alps in 2015 and Mallorca in 2016. We will attempt to accommodate all riders within these parameters either in smaller groups or the main group ride.

Feel free to contact us with any queries.
