Town centre cycle racing came to Whitehaven for the first time in May 1989 with a series of five races organised by Velo Club Cumbria.

Established 50 years ago Velo Club Cumbria has something to offer for all cyclists, whether it's for fun, to get fit, to be part of a club, make friends or push yourself to the limit.

They organise and take part in club rides, time trials, road races,cyclocross races, sportives and also cycling holidays.

Velo Club Cumbria run a very successful time trial league from April to September with club events normally held on a Tuesday night.

The leagues are arranged by ability to allow everyone to be in a competitive group.
