Welcome to Darlington Cycling Club. If you live in or around Darlington and you're interested in road cycling, we offer four club runs every week, and six from May until September. There's always an opportunity to ride with a group.
If you would like to get involved, join us on a club run, or ride with us on one of the Darlington Cycling Festival Tourist Trails.
Safety is paramount; if you're not used to riding in a group, please read the page on Etiquette. Stay at the back of the group until you're confident that you can ride alongside other riders. Don't overlap wheels with the rider in front, and don't weave about!
Darlington Cycling Club has a long history; archive photographs show club meets of the Darlington North Eastern Cycling Club as far back as 1912. In the mid 1960's Darlington North Eastern amalgamated with Richmond CC to form Richmond & Darlington CC which became one of the most successful cycle racing clubs in the North East. Members of Richmond & Darlington CC voted to rename the club Darlington CC at the 2008 AGM.
DCC is affiliated to British Cycling (controlling road and track racing) and to Cycling Time Trials (controlling road time trials).
