Welcome to Wigan Borough Community Cycling Club

Who are we? and what do we do?

We are a group of like minded cyclists who enjoy – the great outdoors – each others company – a laugh and a joke – plus the occasional drop of liquid refreshment. Not necessarily in that order mind. Our group is made up of both genders, mixed physical ability and a variety of ages, (we do limit this to 18 plus though, the younger one’s are much too quick for us).

We don’t race, wear an abundance of Lycra, give awards or titles, other than for notoriety that is. We do however like to explore the local tracks, trails, bridle-ways, roads and towpaths our region has to offer, distance we cycle ranges from between 15 to 50 miles depending on the selected route. We cycle every Tuesday and Thursday from Trencherfield Mill in Wigan, covering up to 25 miles over a couple of hours (give or take) and try to get out on a longer ride every few weeks. Cafe stops are almost mandatory, usually mid-point somewhere on the longer rides and at the end on our Trencherfield rides, we have also been known to get tempted into the occasional licensed establishment, purely for essential fluid intake of course!!!!

All our rides are planned in advance and posted on the Upcoming Events page, they mainly start from a local meeting point, but at other times from various locations around the North West. All the rides are led by experienced leaders and paced to suit the relevant conditions, terrain and participants on that particular day.
