During the darker nights, weekly ‘Turbo Training’ sessions are held to offer a social element to your winter night training blues. These keep everyone in shape for the return of Spring and the start of our weekly ride outs.

Road Biking

This vibrant section of the club enjoys the excellent quiet country roads and the sometimes challenging gradients found in the Tweed Valley.

A wide variety of organised runs and events take place on the road with outline details provided in the section below.

Two Saturday morning runs leave Bespoke Cycles in Peebles High Street at 9.30 (the faster training ride) and 9.40 (slower social ride) throughout the year. These are weather dependant and information is posted on the PCC members Facebook  page… for any last minute arrangements. These are not official PCC events or runs, although PCC members do attend, … anyone participating on these rides does so at their own risk.

PCC organise an Annual 55 miles open Road Race. This takes place in April of each year and is aimed at encouraging development of grass roots Road Racing. A full field of 60 riders is always expected as the event is part of the East of Scotland Development series and open to any  3rd and 4th category riders. Priority for entry is given to members of clubs of organising events in the Road Race Series. BC members can enter this event is via the British Cycling Events system. Places for PCC members are always available.

Weekly time trials are organised throughout the summer from March to September culminating in the annual Hill Climb, see the separate section.

The Tour of Tweeddale Sportive takes place each September and offers alternative routes ranging from 50 to 90 miles each starting and finishing in Peebles.

Group Rides

This is the best way to improve your group riding skills and fitness.

DO bring a rain jacket, pump and tube and money for a coffee!

NB. All riders ride at their own risk. These are not coached rides and ultimately everyone is responsible for themselves.

Please note, rides may not go out every week so please contact membershippcc@gmail.com or visit our members only facebook page for more details.

Road rides may be substituted for a none technical gravel ride (suitable for MTB, cross or gravel bikes) in times of poor weather conditions. 

Weekdays

TUESDAYS

Chain-gang starts Tues 29th March meet outside Costa at 6.30 (chance for sneaky espresso to fuel the ride).
