Velo Hay is a cycling club based in Hay on Wye, for all abilities. We run club rides, indoor cycling (turbo) classes, skills sessions and more! We are especially keen to for you to come along if you are new to cycling, or maybe haven’t been on a bike for longer than you care to remember! Although closely associated with Drover Cycles, Velo Hay is an independently constituted organisation with a separate committee, bank account etc. We’re here to encourage local people to get on their bikes and to enjoy all the wonderful benefits of cycling – physical, social and emotional!
We try to offer club rides which offer options for different abilities. We aim to go out for between one and two hours, and cover about 8 to 10 easy miles for beginners, up to about 30 miles (as hilly as you like!) for faster, more experienced riders. As a new club we are still evolving, and we’ll grow in a way that suits our members – let us know what you want to do!
(we’re also on Facebook – details of upcoming rides and events will be posted here, so like the page if you want to be kept in the loop.)
For 2017, membership of Velo Hay will cost £10.00. We’re more than happy for you to come along to one or two sessions to see if you like it before shelling out any cash. For your money, you will get:
- Regular, weekly rides and events
- Discounted cycle hire if you don’t have your own bike yet
- Help & advice on getting into cycling, equipment and nutrition
- Bike maintenance workshops
- 10% discount on parts, accessories and clothing at Drover Cycles
- 20% discount on team kit
You can download a membership form here (PDF format). Please bring this with you to the first session you attend along with your membership fee in cash or a cheque made out to “Velo Hay”.
VELO HAY NEEDS YOU!
We are always looking for volunteers to lead our rides and help out with other club activities. If you’re interested, please phone us on 01497 822419, email [email protected], or call in to the shop.
