Club Runs

Sunday Club Runs

A traditional club run is one of the best ways to enjoy Sunday mornings! As well as making new friends and getting to know other club members, it’s an opportunity to explore new roads and develop your riding skills, as well as general bike fitness.

Club runs are social rides, and we look after each other when riding in a group. The Club usually has three Sunday runs eac
h week to cater for different abilities; an A, B and C run.  All runs can vary in length from 30 to over 100 miles, with a cafe stop for tea and coffee.
The C run is the steadiest ride for cyclists with 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.  

BRC members can also join the Barnsley Road Club Strava Group and will get information on club runs each week for the following Sunda
y, including times and routes via the Komoot app. An archive of downloadable routes can also be found listed on Komoot These are suitable for your Garmin / Wahoo device and give an idea of the typical Sunday runs.

If you haven’t tried club rides before and want to see if it’s for you, then come on one of our monthly Welcome Rides, ideal for cyclists who are new to riding in a group or returning after time away.

Mid-week gravel group

​There are some great off-road cycling routes around Barnsley, the Trans-Pennine Trail and a network of bridleways and tracks reaching out into every corner of the Borough as well as beyond into the Pennines. Our mid-week gravel group has set itself the task of exploring as many of these routes as possible. The group meet every Thursday evening for a steady and sociable ride of between 2 and 3 hours, with the pace set to suit the group.


If you want to find out where we are heading this week and join us on a club run then get in touch for more information.
