ORWELL VELO CYCLING CLUB

WELCOME

Orwell Velo was established in 2014 by like-minded cyclists who share a passion for riding.

The club’s ambition is to offer a range of opportunities for a local community of riders in and around Ipswich and the South Suffolk area.

We train, ride and race in most cycling disciplines and value active member participation.

New members of any fitness, age and technical ability are welcomed.

Club Rides

Orwell Velo’s ‘back to basics’ weekend club ride is our principle meet of the week. The group remains well disciplined throughout and no rider gets left behind. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or an experienced rouleur, we ride as one.

Weekend meets are supplemented with evening training sessions throughout the summer months and night rides in winter, weather permitting.
