Cycling clubs throughout the land hold a run every Sunday morning and Barnsley Road Club is no different.
A club run is one of the best ways of getting the most from your club, and get to know all the other members.
We have three runs each week to cater for all levels; these are called A, B and C. All runs can vary in length from 50 miles to over a 100 miles, with a cafe stop for lunch and a tea stop on the longer runs.
The C run is the steadiest ride for cyclists who possess a moderate riding ability and reasonable road awareness. This is around 30 miles including a cafe stop, riding at an average of between 12-15 mph.
All runs depart together from the same place and at the same time.
BRC members can join the Barnsley Road Club Strava Group. Here you can check out the stats of other BRC members, get ideas for new routes, or just see who`s gone furthest / fastest / highest this week.
A full list of destinations for the club runs and start times can be found in the Club Runs Calendar below.
Downloadable routes can also be found in the Route Library
These are suitable for your Garmin / Wahoo device.
Riders under the age of 16
Barnsley Road Club allows riders under the age of 16 to attend organised rides, but only once a parental consent form is completed and sent to the club secretary, in advance of rides being attended. A DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) cleared chaperone will be established to be the point of contact.
Completed forms should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
The meeting place for all our club runs is outside the Costa Coffee and KFC at the Town End roundabout in Barnsley Town Centre.
The club runs usually depart between 8am - 9.30am depending on the time of year. Please check the calendar to confirm start times.
