Welcome to the NCC Velo (Norwood Cycle Club)
Back tandem rider Laurance Black with Jonathan Green
The NCC Velo was established in 2007 by a group of experienced cyclists who all volunteer their time to encourage and help cyclists of all ages (min age16) and abilities to improve their cycling proficiency, get fit, have fun and meet like-minded cyclists and ultimately register for one of Norwood's Challenge Bike rides raising money for Norwood. Norwood is a registered charity that supports thousands of child adults, and families living with leaning disability.
What sets the club apart is that we include where possible our special tandem teams with front ride riders supporting a rider with learning disability as well as offering a selection of training rides on most Sundays for all abilities. We offer Sunday rides in 2 categories, fast (16-18 mph) steady (11-14mph). The rides start from Radlett and Northwood with the majority of our riding around Herts and Bucks.
Come along ,join us and be part of the Norwood Cycling Community. For any riding information either email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to
