Group Description

Welcome to Glossop Kinder Velo Cycling Club!
We are based on the edge of the Peak District close to the iconic Snake Pass and Holme Moss. We have an active membership and offer club road rides to appeal to a range of abilities. A description of the proposed ride including route, distance, severity, pace and whether or not there is a cafe stop will be e-mailed via our Yahoo Group a day or two beforehand - if nothing is posted, the ride is not on! Sunday rides usually start from Glossop station at 10am. The club rule is 'no one gets dropped', but if you are new to road riding check out the fitness levels needed and try out a few of our routes beforehand - go to the 'Club Rides' page at www.glossopkindervelo.co.uk for further helpful information including safety and insurance issues. If you want to come on a few club rides you will need to join and agree to our club rules - you can pay for club membership on-line via our website. If you are under 18 you will need to provide a signed parental consent form before you can come on a club ride. You will also need to let the ride leader know you are under 18 so they can take responsibility and ensure you are not left on your own during the ride.
We also host a 25-mile Time Trial in April, the 'High Peak Hog' Sportive in May, a 9-mile Summer Time Trial Series along Torside Valley, the Snake Pass Hill Climb in September, an Autumn Hill Climb Series up Holme Moss and weekend cycle tours throughout the year.
Please visit www.glossopkindervelo.co.uk for more information about our club events. Click on the Flickr link to see photos and join our Yahoo Group to receive e-mails from club members and keep up-to-date. Also join us on Strava - it's addictive and free!
Club meetings are held monthly at the Queen's Arms in Old Glossop at 8.00pm - everyone is welcome!

Club Secretary
