Welcome to Sheffield Sports CC website.


Welcome to Sheffield Sports Cycling Club, possibly Sheffield's oldest cycling club formed more than 100 years ago.  Our club is orientated around the Sunday club runs which are generally around 50-70 miles in the Peak District at a steady pace (15-17MPH).  In the Summer months we also have a chain gang on Tuesday evenings which is about 40 miles with 15 of those very fast (avg 23MPH).  The club also races in the North Midlands Road Racing League and its members have had many successes over the years.
 
Most riders have plenty of experience in club riding and racing and recently the numbers have been growing to over twenty riders most Sundays which can make squeezing into some cafes tricky.
 
Riding in a group at speed requires skill, confidence and responsibility.  All riders in the club are experienced and will help newcomers to adjust to the discipline of group riding.  If you don't like receiving some well meant advice then this club will not suit you.  However, if you're keen to learn and develop into a safe and confident group rider then please get in touch.  For information on where we go, have a look at the Run Sheet.

Winter Sports Trophy 27 November 2011
What sort of event would a cycling club hold for its Winter Trophy?  A run of course.  Bring your running shoes in your jersey pockets this Sunday.  We'll cycle out to Youlgreave and run up Bradford dale to Middleton.
 
Clocks go Back Saturday 29 October
One hour extra in bed but you can bet this also means most of the club riders' summer bikes are going on the turbo until the Spring and it will be winter bikes from now on.
 
81st Monsal Hill Climb
Only two SSCC riders in this prestigious hill climb in 2011.  Dan Panichella in his first ever Attempt came 16th with the fantastic time 1:42.1.  Dominic Watts put in a career best of 1:49.1 to come in 31st and claim 5th in the Vets Cope Trophy winning £10 (enough to pay his subs in 2012).  Well done to both of them and it was great to so much support from the club on the hill.  Full results here.
