Loughborough Students' Cycling Club is made up of athletes of all abilities - from some of the best cyclists in the country to complete novices, and from track sprinters to muddy cross country mountain bike riders, LSCC offers opportunities for everyone.
Taster Sessions and Trials
Our Freshers Ride will leave the Fountain from 9:30 on Saturday 9th October and is open to all students! All that's required is a bike, some spares and tools (inner tube, pump, multi-tool etc.) and a helmet.
Applications for elite athletes for Loughborough Cycling Academy close in the middle of October, whilst applications for our development squad close shortly after that. Successfull applicants could benefit from a range of coaching, strength and conditioning, and nutrition support, and resources for building your own training plans will be available for all members!
We lead club-organised rides from the Fountain on Wednesday afternoons and Saturday mornings, with groups suitable for all abilities. We also host a number of coached sessions at Derby Velodrome and Leicester Cycle Circuit across the year, whether you're looking to take to the boards for the first time, or you want to nail your cornering technique, there's something for you to get involved with.
Our performance squad, Loughborough Cycling Academy, is lead by our Head Coach, Dr David Nichols and offers 1-1 coaching for elite riders. Additionally, riders on the development pathway could benefit from 1-1 or group coaching, with access to gym support, and seminars related to performance improvement.
We offer numerous trips accross the year, catering to every rider, and including social trips to the Peak District, Mountain Bike trips to Wales and France, and winter training camps to Mallorca or Calpe.
These club benefits are only accesssible to paying members, so if you'd like to take advantage of what's on offer, or would like to be granted exemption to keep your nice shiny bike in your Halls of Residence, make sure to join LSCC.
