Bike Resources in Loughborough

Loughborough is one of those places that's well located for other places (such as Nottingham and Leicester), and as a consequence is a good starting point for a Midlands/Peak District cycling holiday. It is fortunate to be in the heart of rolling hills, and this has boosted the popularity of cycling and boosted the strength of local riders as well.

Cycling in Loughborough


The region has its fair share of clubs, including:
  • Loughborough Road Club
  • Ratae Road Club
  • Coalville Wheelers
  • Derby Mercury Road Club
  • Loughborough Phoenix Cycling Club
  • Leicester Forest Cycling Club
  • Nottingham Clarion Wheelers

Coalville Wheelers is without doubt the biggest and most successful in the region, with names like Geoff Platts and Ashley Long regularly taking first places and team prizes.


Not that many in Loughborough itself; Leicester has the lion's share, and Nottingham has a fair few as well.
