A cycling club is holding an official launch later this month.

Alnwick Cycling Club is a new association, formed by a group of friends from Alnwick and surrounding areas, who have been riding together for a number of years.

Membership currently stands at over 50 people but new enthusiasts of all ages and all disciplines are welcome to join.

And a special launch night, at which the club’s kit will be introduced is being held at Alnwick Rugby Club, on Saturday, March 22, from 7pm.

There will be chance to find out about the club and the night will include a disco and buffet.

The club welcomes people from all disciplines and meets at 9am on Sundays at Willowburn Sports Centre in Alnwick.

The club is split up into small ability-based groups, each of which has a nominated ride leader whose role is to ensure the safety of the group and support less confident riders.
