Welcome

A warm welcome from all in the Harrogate Nova, Harrogate’s oldest Cycling club.

Club Rides

There are generally club rides on Saturdays and Sundays with the odd chain gang around Penny Pot on a Tuesday evening when the clocks change. Please check the events page or the forum for details and meeting points. The start time and place may also vary but will be indicated on the forum. The club rides are around 40/50 miles with longer rides in the summer and steady cafe rides in the winter. Non-members and other clubs are welcome to join in at any time.

Club Events

The club organises a number of races and events throughout the year.  Harrogate Nova has been a long standing organiser of the reliability ride series and also arranges Open Time Trials, British Cycling Road Races and Cyclocross Races.  Please see the Promoted Events Page for more details.

Evening Time Trial League

From Spring to Autumn there is a weekly evening time trial league which is kindly supported by Beech House Dental Practice of Ripon.  The evening league is very popular.  There are a variety of courses ranging from flat speed courses to more challenging hilly events.  The back end of the season includes a trio of hill climbs based on Norwood, Darley and the Scar House private road. Please note that this series is only open to first claim and existing second claim members.

Members also participate collectively in other events around the UK and Europe, both on and off road. All events can be found in the Events section. A Time Trial Guide can be found here
