Joining The Club

About us
Matlock Cycling Club is believed to be at least a hundred years old. Photographs exist of riders at the Matlock cycling track taken before 1890 and part of the track banking can still be seen in a garden in Olde Englishe Road. Records state that at that time local cyclists reintroduced a carnival in Matlock and that the procession was led by those cyclists. This makes us think that there was a club in existence by then. The club was suspended a couple of years after the Second World War started, and was reformed after the end of the War.

Unfortunately all club records appear to be lost until the 1938 accounts book, so if anyone is able to fill in the details for us please let us know. Riders of International and National standing who began their careers with Matlock CC include: Annie Last, Tim Gould, Julian Gould, Peter Middleton, Mark Hughes, Doug Forrester, Jon Rider, Eric Stone, Chris Hopkinson, Tom Last and Phil Spencer.
