Club Rides

Groups are organised catering for a range of abilities and experience, regular Saturday rides start from Cofferidge Close, outside the Passage to India restaurant in Stony Stratford. Prospective club members are welcome to join club rides as an invited rider but must join the club if they wish to continue riding with the club, please make yourself known to the group leader when you arrive.

Rides suitable for less experienced riders leave at 09:30, there are typically two rides with one group covering approximately 25 miles at around 12 to 13 mph average and another covering 45 miles at 14 to 15 mph average. Rides for experienced group riders leave at 09:00 with groups ranging from 17 to 19 mph average and covering 50 to 60 miles. If you're unsure which group to join then please join a slower group so you can gain experience on how the club rides operate.

Ladies

An increasingly active group our lady members regularly compete in all manner of local, national and international events in all disciplines; time trialling, triathlon, duathlon and road racing, as well as organising social events.

Road Race

Team Milton Keynes has been developing its road racing team over the last few years and has developed a strong squad of local road racers competing well in many of the local road race and circuit events.

Time Trial

Team Milton Keynes has a strong time trialling tradition and the club holds its own time trial series on a Monday night from April to August when the evenings are light. These events are held over a number of different 10 mile courses in the area.

Triathlon & Duathlon

Triathletes and duathletes from Team Milton Keynes compete in competitions ranging from local "Big Cow" events to international events such as the World Championships and the various Ironman events. All standards are catered for, from beginners to those trying to reach the top of the podium in elite races.

Whatever your experience level or interest there will be Triathletes in the club who can help you or share their knowledge of how to plan and prepare for particular events with regular training and coaching sessions across all the disciplines.

Youth

Team Milton Keynes Youth has become one of the most successful youth cycling squads in the country.

Founded as Team Keyne in 1997 by Bob Varney as the Youth Development Squad for the parent club Team Milton Keynes, from the outset, the club embraced the concept that all cycling disciplines should be found within one club and many past members have gone on to race at national and international level including Team Sky rider Ian Stannard and Canyon Sram rider and 2016 National Champion Hannah Barnes and her sister National under 23 champion Alice.

For riders from 6 to 16 years old Team Milton Keynes provides a number of ways of getting into cycling including Team Milton Keynes Youth Challenge, Saturday Cycle Coaching, Road Racing, Cyclocross, MTB & Triathlon/Duathlon.

In 2013 Shimano shot a promotional video of Ian Stannard with our younger members (see below).
