How do I join PCC?

We have adult, junior and family memberships available online click here to view our membership page and to sign up.

I have recently moved into the area. I am a keen cyclist and interested to see what is available around this area. Is there a regular Saturday or Sunday cycle that takes place around the Peebles area? If so what are the distances and routes covered and what is the usual pace?

We do have a Saturday morning road ride. It’s a case of turn up, see who else arrives and pick a route and pace to suit. It is usually for approx 2 ½ to 3 hours and may cover anything up to 50-60 miles.

We also try and run more social road rides on ad adhoc basis at a leisurely pace.

All rides are advertised through club comms, you’ll find details of how to sign up for club comms in your joining email.

I understand you have a very active Kids MTB Club but I was wondering if you do anything for the older generation?

Yes we do run a weekly MTB ride on a Tuesday evening throughout the year come rain or shine or wind or snow.

Do Peebles Cycling Club have weekly time trials I could take part in?

From March through to Sept we run weekly time trials for first claim club members and CTT members on 10 – 25 mile circuits around Peebles area.

Do I need to be a member of PCC to take part in the various rides and activities?

You are free to join in any rides as a guest, should you enjoy the company then we would welcome you to join the club and become more involved.

I'm coming up to Peebles area for a short holiday soon and wondered if you could recommend any road routes?

We organise the Tour of Tweeddale sportif in September every year which has 50, 70 and 90 mile routes. You can obviously use these during your holiday or alternatively there are routes too numerous to mention all accessible straight from your accommodation in Peebles.

I understand you have an excellent Kids Club, can I bring my child along on Saturday to join in?

If your child is a club member then then please let us know that they want to join in by contacting us.

We do run other sessions for young riders to give them basic skills and confidence to go and ride with other family members and friends. We will let you know when these are planned.

Is there a minimum age that children can join Kids Club?

We do not take youngsters younger than 7 years into Kids Club as their maturity and fitness below that age is not suited to the type of riding that we do.

I would like to help out at Kids Club and I understand that you are short of leaders. How do I get more involved and do I need any qualifications?

We do periodically take on new leaders and assist with their SMBLA training to a minimum of TCL standard. After which they are able to ride alongside existing leaders taking full responsibility for groups of youngsters and ensuring we are able to sustain the future of the club. If you send us your details and a little about your cycling background we would be pleased to add your name to our list of potential leaders.
