About our Club
Welcome to the website of Minehead Cycling Club. The club, based in West Somerset, aims to encourage cycling in all its forms. The club was formed in 1984, and some of the original members are still active.
We have club runs on Sunday mornings, Weds afternoons during BST and mornings during GMT. These rides cover W Somerset, Exmoor National Park and sometimes venture into Devon. Although there are lots of hills around here, the countryside is spectacular. The Sunday ride is divided into 3 groups depending on whether you wish to ride as fast as possible, or just take it easy.
