Welcome

A warm welcome from Harrogate Nova, Harrogate’s oldest Cycling Club.

Club Rides

There are club rides on most weekends, starting from & ending at Prologue Performance Cycling on Cold Bath Road, usually on a Saturday at 08:30 in the summer or 09:00 in the winter.

A suggested route will typically be posted via a link to Strava (so you can download the route to your GPS device) and the approximate pace is also stated – it’s usually fast with an 19-20 mph average speed over a 60-ish mile route.

If you would like to join one of our weekend club rides without first being a member, or being a visitor to the area from another cycling club, then you are very welcome. Club members organise rides via the Forum, so the most reliable way to find out about the ride details is to visit the forum.

Anyone joining a Harrogate Nova club ride is expected to abide by the Highway Code, ride responsibly and sensibly. Riders are responsible for their own safety and must ride in a manner that is safe for themselves, other riders and road users.

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
