Plymouth Corinthian CC is a friendly club with 127 years of history. It’s tradition is in competitive racing but that doesn’t mean that everyone in the club races, far from it. We are a multi-discipline inclusive club. Some riders just like being part of a club to meet like minded people and enjoy a social ride or sportive together often including a nice cafe stop too!
There are a range of social and training rides throughout the year to meet all abilities and objectives:
Sunday Club Run: If you want to dip your toe with a club ride then we ride every Sunday at 8:30am from the entrance to the Plymouth Gateway Retail Park (Marsh Mills Costa), click here for more details. You can expect 3 led rides to leave each week (Base, Tempo & Pace). https://www.plymouthcorinthiancc.co.uk/sunday-road-club-runs
Wednesday Social: Steve Payne leads a ride most Wednesday’s leaving Marsh Mills at 9am. If of interest send him a message to confirm details for the ride.
Chain Gang: Everyone welcome! Meet at the Elburton Hotel for 6.15 prompt departure. Expect to ride in close proximity at an average of +24mph. The ride generally runs between April and September.
Ladies Ride: Led by Tracey, this ride runs once a month on a Saturday. You can expect to ride between 30 & 40 miles at an average speed of 14-16mph – always a Cafe stop.
Club Social: We hold monthly club socials at the Rockets and Rascals Cafe on the Barbican in Plymouth. These are held on the second Monday of each month at 7:30pm. Throughout the year we also organise other social events to build friendships, camaraderie and make new members feel welcome.
