Our team of British Cycling qualified coaches run Go-Ride sessions virtually every week of the year from our junior coaching base in North Muskham, next to Newark on the A1. This takes place in the large village sports field, offering a safe, traffic free environment in with to coach.

Taking juniors from 6-16 years old, we provide a variety of competence and age appropriate coaching, within planned sessions incorporating bike skills, road skills, games and races – all with the aim to develop junior rider skills, ability and confidence on a bike.

We take pride in our club being open and inclusive. We do operate a code of conduct policy at the club, which all riders (seniors and juniors) and parents (observing / supporting coaching sessions) are expected to adhere to.

Hard Riders Open 22 Mile Time Trial


A compact field of 21 made the start sheet of this early season 22 mile TT run under CTT rules.  No snow was visible which had made a nice change from the previous few weeks, in fact the sun was shining following a special request.  The riders came from as far away as Cambridge University.  The course ran from South Muskham near Newark, Notts up to Ollerton and back again - a rolling course and the home for Newark Castle CC's hard rider course - one which can take the unwary rider by surprise.

Top 3 men were:

  1. Peter Nicholls (Race Hub) 47:05 (course record) - veteran
  2. James Bentley (Team Bottrill / Vanguard )  48:30 - espoir
  3. Alistair Golby (Cambridge University CC)  48:42 - espoir

Top and only female was Molly Hodges (Avid Sport) 62:58 - senior

Peter and Molly received their winners prizes from experienced club racer Alf Davies.
