Derby Mercury RC
Derby Mercury has been around since 1938 and its objectives are the encouragement of cycling and other outdoor activities. We have both on and off road riders. When members are not out training or on holiday, weekly clubs rides are held on Sundays meeting at Allestree or Autumn Tints run from a choice of three locations (in rotation) with special long events on occasional Saturdays. Regular mountain biking is on a Monday evening with some weekend rides. During the summer we run a Club Time Trial series on Tuesday evenings.
We are a traditional cycling club with members taking part in all aspects of cycling both road and off road, competitive and non-competitive. We have large numbers of young riders and weekly youth coaching sessions, fair sized road racing, cyclo cross, mountain bike and audax contingents, some track riders - and even one or two testers ! If you live locally you are more than welcome to try us out before joining.
