Bicester Millennium Cycling Club was formed in 1999 in time, as its name suggests, for the new Millennium. The Club’s current membership is an eclectic mix of sporting and leisure cyclist, “roadies” and “off roaders”, across a range of ages and experience. The Club provides a focal point for cycling enthusiasts from Bicester, a rapidly growing town, and the surrounding areas of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire including Brackley and Buckingham.
There are Club road bike runs rides every Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holiday mornings throughout the year at 9:00 am starting from Bicester North Railway Station. There are also occasional off road rides and velodrome trips. Keep any eye on the Club Forum & Ride Calendar for details. See the Club Runs page for current information on all organised activities.
Bicester Millennium Cycling Club promotes a number of Open and Club time trial events during the summer months, with many of these taking place on the perimeter track at RAF Weston on the Green. The perimeter track provides a safe, traffic free environment which has allowed the Club to run the very successful and popular 4-up and 9-up Team Time Trial events and the opening round of the Oxfordshire Road Racing League.
In addition, we run the fabulous Silverstone 9-up Team Time Trial around the world famous Silverstone Motor Racing circuit, the only event of it’s kind in Britain.
We’re also pleased to announce that since 2012 we have been a British Cycling Go-Ride club, providing off-road training for younger riders (for hopeful Cavendish’s & Wiggins’s ! ). See the Coaching pages for further details.
If you need some information not contained within this website please call or email one of our club officials listed on the Contact Us page who will be pleased to help.
Turn up and Ride!
If you’re thinking of joining our club, you are welcome to turn up and join one of the many club runs (see the forum for details).
Please note that the club caters mainly for those cyclists who have a serious interest in cycling. However, adult novices, of whatever age or fitness level, can be catered for and would be welcomed, particularly on our monthly Taster rides where the pace is slow, the banter plentiful and the terrain is flat.
Road runs require a suitable road bike, either racing or touring/audax style. Mountain bike runs can be ridden on any suitable mountain bike but please note these runs can get very muddy!
Riders should be suitably equipped for the type of riding they are interested in. Although helmets are not compulsory they should be worn for your own safety, and in the case of off-road riding are essential. Participation is at your own risk. If you need further advice please contact a club representative via the Contact Us page.
