About

If you love cycling or want to give it a try, The Cyclists of Stamford  (TCOS) is almost definitely right for you.  We are a community cycling group happy to share our knowledge of great local routes, cafe stops and the joy of road cycling.

Hilly or flat, fast or leisurely, long or short, we will endeavour to deliver the right combination of fitness, fun and camaraderie.

Annual membership is just £30 and the sign up process is simple, click on 'Join' in the menu at the top of the page to get started.

Our community and local charities - doing good

We are also keen to help and support the people around us, whether this is with our time, experience or fund raising.  As a minimum we aim to give at least 50% of any surplus monies to a local charity (at the end of each financial year) and organise a specific charity ride.  In 2020 / 21, our chosen charity is 'Second Helpings' (http://www.secondhelpings.org.uk/ for more information).

Give TCOS a try

Whilst we are keen for people to join, some of you will want to see if fitness, fun and camaraderie is to your liking.  If this is true for you, it is OK with us if you come along as a guest for the first 3 rides.
