Welcome to Darlington Cycling Club
Note: In view of the ongoing Government advice and guidance and in particular the guidance on social distancing, all club runs and meetings are cancelled until further notice. If you're riding alone, take care and stay safe.
If you live in or around Darlington and you're interested in road cycling, this is the place to be. With four club runs every week, and six from May until September, there's always an opportunity to ride with a group. If you would like to get involved, join us on a club run, or ride with us on one of the annual Darlington Borough Council Cycle Rides.
Safety is paramount; we strongly recommend that you wear a cycling helmet on all rides. If you're not used to riding in a group, please read the page on Group Riding Etiquette. Stay at the back of the group until you're confident that you can ride alongside other riders. Don't overlap wheels with the rider in front, and don't weave about!
DCC is affiliated to Cycling UK (formerly CTC), Cycling Time Trials (controlling road time trials) and to British Cycling (controlling road and track racing).
Club meetings are held on the first Monday of every month in the Dolphin Centre, Darlington Market Place. If it's a Bank Holiday, the meeting is held the following Monday.
