The Transpennine Cycling Club (TPCC) caters for riders from Rochdale and the surrounding area. We are a small, friendly and welcoming club and the focus is on enjoying our cycling on great cycling routes in one of the most beautiful areas of the country .
Sunday road rides usually start from “The Range”, Kingsway Retail Park, Rochdale, OL16 5AF (junction Milnrow Rd/Kingsway- see attached map) at 9.30am (check this website for any occasional changes). We have a very varied programme of rides which take place all year round. Rides are usually between 30 to 80 miles and always include a café stop. We try to include a shorter variation of the ride for anyone with time constraints. No-one is left behind and we all help out with punctures and mechanical problems. The routes and meeting times of the weekly club rides are e-mailed out to members and appear on the Home page of this site in the moving banner underneath the photographs.
Off-road and trail riding is also catered for, with our regular Wednesday evening MTB rides of about 2 hours duration with a visit to a a pub (optional!) for a pint, a chat and a laugh at the end of the ride.
Fellow cyclists always welcome, we are always pleased to hear from members and anyone who would like to try riding with us. Telephone Eric Hough on 07875 719256 or just turn up and see if this is the cycling club for you. No obligation or commitment. Also to be kept informed of upcoming rides and events please send your e-mail address to firstname.lastname@example.org
