Welcome to Ashbourne Cycling Club Website
A group of road cyclists have been meeting regularly over the past few years to ride in and around the Peak District.A number of the current riders have participated in the Etape du Tour in the Pyrenees and the Marmotte in the Alps.
The objective of the club is to encourage more cyclists of all abilities to join the club,both Men and Women over the age of 18 are welcome to join.
As reported in the Ashbourne Telegraph in October 2008, there was an Ashbourne Cycling Club operating from as far back as 1939.
On the edge of the Peak District National park we are so lucky to be able to ride in one of the most beautiful areas in England with quite country lanes and testing climbs providing a great variety of routes to suit all abilities.
Regular group rides take place on Saturday mornings - rides up to 4hrs with a tea stop. We will be promoting new ride options to appeal to different abilities
Men and Women over the age of 18 are welcome to come along and join us for a ride.

Anyone wanting club kit? we are looking to place a kit order before the end of the month please get in touch if you require any
thought we could slip in a steady ride to Calver, usual route out via Longcliffe,Winster (can go over Beeley Moor if you like the view adds 5mls), back via Bakewell,Winster then Ryder Point or usual way if you prefer, still 08:30 ALC
Route for Saturday, more of a Winter route mainly on main roads but keeping of the busy ones, route goes out via Hulland, turning at Kedlaston Hall and heading to Kirk Langley via Lodge Lane climb then Etwall,Hilton stopping at the Salt Box
, route heads back via Hanbury and Marchington Cliff (don't panic we will be going down it) on to Uttoxeter.
As usual there are plenty of options both going out and back, will stick with the 08:30 start for a couple of weeks.
Route for Saturday, sorry its a bit late! Calver tea stop route takes in Beeley Moor climb and the usual other lumps, shorter/easier option is through Chatsworth and meet up at tea stophttp://connect.garmin.com/course/4321019
Links to two suggested routes below, a long and short route. Both routes head out the same way via Dobbin horse lane on towards Church Broughton cutting back across to Meynell Langley tea stop, both routes head back same route have added climbs of Weaver Hills and Thorpe Cloud to the longer route if you fancy a bit of climbing. Other than that both routes are fairly flat for a change.
Two routes for Saturday, both heading out in the same direction via Ellastone and over Ramshorn on to BottomHouses, route splits with longer route going over Morridge shorter route continues on through Onecote and on to meet at tea stop at Hulme End, short route back via Biggin and Parwich long route back via Newhaven dropping down to via gelia turning right to climb up to Ryder Point then on past Carsington Reservoir
Route heads out to Longstone Edge,tea stop around half way 53 lumpy miles, plenty of options to get back if you need to.
There will be a easier shorter route heading out towards the Salt box, steady pace around 40mls
