Our News

The Thistle - love all things cycling.

Thistle members compete at all levels of cycling activities, from Scottish and UK events to international sportives.

We organise club confined and open time trials and promote a number of road races. The club also organises regular group training rides and APR sessions. If you are new to club cycling, we can help you with advice. We’re a supportive bunch. The social side of cycling is an important part of Dundee Thistle. Many of our members don't race, and just enjoy taking part in our regular on and off-road group rides and other social activities.

Welcome to the Dundee Thistle Cycling Club

We're a small club - big on ambition. We want to spend as much time on the bike as possible, always pushing ourselves to help others achieve more on a bike.

Welcome to the web page of the Dundee Thistle cycling club. The club caters for all levels of cycling whether you are a racing/sportive enthusiast or a more casual rider looking to get fitter and still enjoy the social side of cycling.

Club runs are open to all so you don't need to initially be a member of the club to join in on the fun.

 

Runs usually leave from Invergowrie or Camperdown Gates

During the summer months we have a more competive Thursday night APR training session which starts from Invergowrie.

Weekend club runs leave every Sunday at 9.30 from Camperdown Country Park gates where a number of clubs meet. The Camperdown Country Park can be found just off the Kingsway at the road into McDonalds and the Cineworld cinema. Typically the club runs will vary in length from 60 to 80 miles and will almost always have a cafe stop.

WINTER MONTHS. Wednesday Group Ride at a steady pace. Thursday night is a faster run with hills. Both meet at 6pm at the Larged pave area as you enter Invergowrie. Check FaceBook for latest updates or changes due to weather conditions.

 

A general and a race Committee meeting is held on a regular basis but we are always ready to try new ideas.

 

Mostly we put on road runs but have an active mountain biking group which meets at 6:30PM every Tuesday. The route can vary although we generally meet at the Tay Road bridge lifts and do a ride to Tensmuir forest through Tayport.
