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.
