About Allez Prestwich Cycling Club

Allez Prestwich Cycling Club is a social cycling club, operating moderately challenging/challenging rides starting and finishing in Prestwich, Manchester.

The emphasis is on good riding with nice people and a beer/coffee/soft drink (delete as appropriate) along the way and/or afterwards. This is not a racing club but nor is it a pottering tootle along country lanes. It’s somewhere in between; not too serious but just (un)relaxed enough to get the heart pumping!

Rides are organised across various loops initially on a twice a month basis. A Standard ride of around 35-45 miles with a decent amount of climbing and a Big Ride which are nearer to 60-70 miles with lots of climbing. Visit the Rides page for details on where we are going and when.

Anyone can join but you should be moderately fit, have a decent working bike (and means to fix it) but most of all being nice company would be grand. For Big Rides, unless you’ve been doing those sorts of distances and climbs, we’d tend to recommend coming on a standard ride first. Get in touch if you’re unsure.

You can read the ‘Beginnings’ page for more details about the club and the motivations behind Allez Prestwich.

Weather update for tomorrow (sun mar 18)

Needless to say, check back tomorrow (or check out your window) as to whether some sort of ride will be on. Brutal here in Prestwich at the moment, blizzard vibes. The forecast up into early hours of tomorrow looks dire and how accurate that is will determine the ride’s viability. Update early doors tomorrow.

Weekend Weather Update

Weather looking absolutely rubbish yet again. Stay tuned for updates. Current plan still to meet at 9am on Sun and call the route there and then. Likely will not head east.
Two current ideas: Rob has good idea to do the Giro D’Adlington which heads west and is not forecast to be as badly affected or Craig’s other option to ride relatively locally (boring yet quicker to get home if you’re really freezing). You can opt for which one you want on Sunday.
All the above changes if it is definitely snowing or icy on our route. In which case it will officially be cancelled, however you can go out and do as you please.
