Our Approach

Social and Inclusive

Walton Velo Cycle Club was formed in 2014 to satisfy the need for an inclusive local club that mixes enthusiasm for cycling with a good social element. At the heart of the club is the weekly ‘club run’, which provides a relaxed opportunity to cycle and enjoy a coffee with other members, with the mid-week ‘chain gang’ satisfying members competitive instincts to test their legs against each other.
Although we don’t have a racing pedigree, some of our members do race in various forms and we support these initiatives wherever we can.
We aim to provide a varied mix of cycling and as broad an experience as possible.  To achieve this we ensure a mix of routes for all abilities, with regular trips to explore roads further afield.  The club also enters select Sportives and organises cycling holidays to tackle some of Europe’s iconic cycling country and climbs.

It’s a testament to this approach that many of our members have become firm friends over the years, bonded through a shared love of cycling and socialising with like minded people.

Club Kit

Distinctive and Stylish

Walton Velo club kit is supplied by Stolen Goat, with a selection of jerseys, gilet and rain cape based on their “Bodyline” and “Orkaan” ranges.

The jersey is the centre piece of our kit and is paired with items of clothing that are available “off the shelf” or that the majority of members already have.

By pairing the jersey with black shorts and accessories, we aim to create that uniform ‘club look’ at minimal cost, while enabling personal choice in key areas.

Further information on the gender specific fits and ordering details are shown below.

Club FAQ

Answers to Frequently Asked Questions

This FAQ has been compiled to answer the most commonly asked questions about Walton Velo Cycling Club.  If you can’t find an answer here then just ask anyone on a ride, or send your question to the club admin team.

Our club runs are not “full-effort” training rides. We try to keep a steady pace and ride as a group at all times, dropping to the pace of the slowest rider if necessary on climbs.  So you don’t have to be super fit to ride on our club runs.  As a guideline, if you can manage a 40 mile solo ride at a reasonable pace (average 25kmph), you should have no problem riding with us.

We tend to ride in a fairly close group, riding two abreast unless road or traffic conditions require us to ride single file.  Don’t worry if you feel a little nervous at first when riding in a group, you will soon get the hang of it.

There are a number of unwritten “rules of the road” that we expect new riders to pick up as they go along such as calling out potholes in the road, not overlapping your front wheel with the rear wheel of the person in front etc.  You will soon pick these up as you gain more experience of riding with us.

Womens Rain Cape

Description

The Stolen Goat rain cape is not your ordinary plastic full barrier rain cape. Yes, it is waterproof, extremely thin, lightweight and packs down into nothing… but… it is also super-stretchy and breathable thanks to its high tech, 4-way stretch, one-way-waterproof barrier called Atom.

This barrier prevents wind and rain from entering but still allows air to exit out from the garment easily. It’s not super breathable like our Bodyline jerseys but it’s definitely not a ‘boil in the bag’ rain cape.

Use as a super lightweight waterproof layer from the get-go or stash it away in your jersey pocket ready for when the weather turns, this waterproof layer is a must-have for any cyclist.

FEATURES IN A NUTSHELL
  • Water & wind resistant fabric
  • Perfect for temperatures ranging from 6-16°C
  • Weatherproofing is manufactured into the garment (it won’t fade with washing)
  • Comfort fit

  • Stretchy anti-slip cuffs
  • Mens specific fit
