Founded in 2012, with over 140 registered club members, we're Saffron Walden's cycling club.
Our club is about cycling together and enjoying the company we keep.
We roll out every Sunday, Wednesday and Friday, and whether you're new to the sport or an experienced rider, there's always someone to share time on the bike with. After all, it's what we like doing! Our emphasis is on group rides catering for all abilities and speeds.
Whilst many members do compete in some form of racing, be it on road or off road there are many members who simply wish to ride their bike in a group, in the company of friends.
Where we compete
We participate in a wide variety of disciplines including, Road, TT, Audax, Circuit, Crit, Cyclocross, Track, MTB and XC.
Our club members participate in events all over the country and on the Continent including: Ride London, Tour of Cambridge, Dunwich Dynamo, Tour de Yorkshire, L’Etape du Tour, Maratona, Marmotte, Flanders, the Alpes, Dolomites, Pyrenees, Roubaix and Mallorca 312,... to name just a few.
The club runs an annual club hill climb and during the summer a bi-weekly evening Open 10 mile time-trial series. We also run a Wednesday evening social ride (with refreshments at Railway Tavern afterwards).
Information on what we do can be found in either our events calendar, with updates published on our club rides page and the Walden Velo Facebook page.
