WELCOME TO GARSTANG CYCLING CLUB
The friendly club for cyclists with a range of abilities
COME AND JOIN US ON A CLUB RIDE
If you think you may want to join the club, why not introduce yourself on our Facebook page, or come down to our start point outside the Royal Oak in Garstang on a Saturday morning? Our rides start at 9-30am so get there early. We are a friendly club and not everyone is a lycra-clad racer, so don't feel intimidated if you are more leisure cyclist than Olympic hopeful!
Unlike many clubs, all our weekly organised rides are on a SATURDAY. However, if Saturday isn't a good day for you, there are additional social rides most weeks, usually on a Tuesday of Thursday- or both , which can be viewed by joining our Facebook page, where members will suggest a route or cafe to visit- always a great social tootle to somewhere . For the Fast Boys we also organise ad hoc Chain Gang evenings, or even a quick blast around the Trough. So something for everyone- you just need to keep up to date on our Facebook page or the front page of our website
And all for £10 a year membership- what's not to like?
