Born out of COVID-19 in 2020 the club wanted to have a competitive event that could be carried out individually so we devised the Punk TT. With breathtaking prizes up for grabs the event takes place throughout the month of May and the only rule is no drafting. You can use whatever bike you like (Oh that's another rule - no e-bikes - sorry!), and you can have as many goes as you like.
The route is a Strava segment and you can have as many goes as you like with the results published on Strava.
Saddleworth Mountain Time Trial
Held in mid May this time trial has a long tradition with the course record still being held by Chris Boardman. The course starts and finishes in Greenfield and goes up the locally named Isle of Skye road towards Holmfirth. It turns left and drops into Meltham before returning via the climb of Wessenden. Keep an eye out for entry via the CTT website.
This is an annual social ride to the ILP Clarion House in Nelson. It is a wonderful ride to a massively interesting historical setting. Details of the ride are published in our Facebook Group. Please join the club to gain access to this page.
Saddleworth Clarion Audaxes
Join Saddleworth Clarion on our famous Audax rides that return after a two year absence.
Two fantastic routes, a massive Clarion welcome.
Organised via our Facebook group, this fun weekend happens every October. It starts in Uppermill and we ride to Hull and get the overnight ferry to...well that depends on where we land. Spiffing beers are enjoyed on ferry on the way out and then we ride between 80km and 130km around Belgium/Netherlands. We get back to the ferry for more fortifying snifters and wake up back in Hull. Then you can ride back to Uppermill or organise your own transport back. This has been popular with non-riding club mates too who drive to Hull and then spend a day in one of northern Europe's beautiful cities.
