Windmill Cycle Club Special Events

Throughout the year we organise special events from day rides further afield, to weekends away and off-bike social events at local pubs, bike shows visits and lots more.

Be sure to bookmark this page and come back soon to see what we're planning. Don't forget to connect with us on Facebook too, so you're always up to date.

Why not let us know about an event you are planning and we'll tell our members about it here. Please use the Contact Form to get in touch.

Special Events are normally open to everyone, though occasionally we may have restricted places and will offer those to regular riders in the group first. More reason than ever to join us on a local ride!

We've completed all the pre-planned events for the year (Except the Xmas Ride - See Facebook for details). 2020 is already shaping up to be our busiest year so far - join us on a local ride to find out more.

Strade Bianche di Essex

Those of you that have ridden this before will recognise most of the route, but this year we are running it in reverse. We would recommend a gravel, CX or mountain bike for this challenge. This is a non lead event with no route markings or Marshalls.

This event has been completed, but we've left it here for now to show you what we've been up to so far this year.

Surrey Hills Sunday

Due to the current situation, we have postponed our trip to the Surrey Hills. We will be back and it'll be better than ever because it'll be a lot dryer later in the year.

This event is open to all Windmillers and friends. Please try and share a car to Peaslake so we can reduce our environmental impact.

Elan & The Doethie Valley

After A successful reccy ride in 2019, the Elan & Doethie Valley is ready for a bigger group visit in 2020. An amazing place to ride with a huge variety of trails including the famous 'Monk's Trod' - 2 miles of heavy going in proper boggy conditions! Some distance away, but definitely one for the diary.
