LifeCycles Leeds Cycling Club are part of the Vertex Tuesday Evening Time-Trial league - if you are a paid up member of the the club, you will get preferred entry to these events and entitled to the prizes awarded.
We do have a Strava club, but we DO NOT run Strava competitions and award prizes for hammering along a road in a gale-force tailwind. If you have a competitive streak - pin a number on your back and enter a proper event 'on a level playing field'. We are firm believers in supporting local clubs that organise events for us cyclists. Please show your support by entering these local events, many of which have been going for several generations before us.
Cycling existed before Strava.
We have a variety of benefits that you will benefit from when joining up with us, other than riding with a bunch of awesome cyclists!!. Here's what you get:
Whilst we are a new cycling club in Leeds, we have some very experienced members that have been riding within clubs for over 20 years. We may not have a massive membership, but we do have masses of experience.

We organise rides away from Leeds, mostly mountain biking at trail centres and in various locations across the UK. We also organise trips to Manchester Velodrome.
