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. Club members also organise occasional weekend trips and the ever-popular annual Majorca training holiday.

 

It’s easy to join, just turn up or let us know you’d like to get involved.

The annual membership is £20.00 but if you want to know more drop us an email, scroll to the bottom of the page, or click the facebook logo.

 

Always wear a helmet and carry a pump, spare innertube and basic tool kit to get you home. If you stop at a café have money.

 

Club members joining or renewing the Membership in 2017 will also receive a FREE Club Jersey, don't miss this chance.

Those who were at the Club AGM in December will be aware that Phil put forward a proposal, that due to the Club’s healthy balance sheet and as a thank-you to all our members for their hard work in promoting the events that have helped raise the capital we have in the bank, we should reward ourselves with something that all members would benefit from, namely a Club jersey.

We are now in a position to offer all current members a FREE SHORT SLEEVE JERSEY this offer is also available to recently lapsed and new members on payment of their 2017 fees.

The manufacturer making the Jersey is Verge, if you wish to try on a Jersey for size pop down to Spokes as Craig is a dealer for them. Or check out the size chart at http://www.vergesport.com.

If you wish to take up this generous offer please reply with what size you require ASAP as we would like to get the order away very soon and remember if you have not already, pay your £20.00 Fees.

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 UGC cinema. Typically the club runs will vary in length from 60 to 80 miles and will almost always have a cafe stop.

WINTER MONTHS ONLY! Wednesday Chain Gang Ride under floodlights at the velodrome. Open house from 6ish to 7.45pm, £3 to pay for the track and lights. Ride at your own pace on your own road bike.
The velodrome has parking, toilets, changing etc.

 

A general Committee meeting is held the first Thursday of each month.

 

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.
