Airedale Olympic Cycling Club welcomes novice and experienced cyclists to become members of the club. Find out about trying a club ride and how to join here.

Come & Try

The Club encourages prospective new members to come and try a ride or two before joining. Please arrange this by contacting the club in advance via our contact page

Most prospective members will join the Saturday ride starting at 09.30 from Micklefield Park, Rawdon to Bolton Abbey (cafe) and back, where the route can be tailored to suit your ability. Experienced cyclists may trial club rides of greater distance/speed to suit.

To join a ride you will need:

A bicycle in roadworthy condition
A cycle helmet
Water and any snacks
Contact details of a friend/relative

If you are unsure about any aspect of the ride, equipment or clothing etc, then please ask. As a prospective member you will benefit from the Club’s liability insurance and do not therefore need to be a member of British Cycling or Cycling UK whilst trying out the Club.

If you wish to continue riding with the club after two trial rides, then you must become a member.
