About Us

Durham City Velo (DCV) was formed by a group of cycling enthusiasts from in and around the historic city of Durham – in Northern England – in March 2015. Since then our membership has grown considerably and spans a wide range of age and experience.

We currently focus on road cycling but there’s a fair bit of off-road too. Unlike many clubs we offer TWO club runs on a weekend – Saturday AND Sunday – plus mid-week training when evenings are longer and a Winter Challenge to keep us motivated through the colder months of the year.

Although we’re not (as yet) a racing club we ARE registered with Cycling Time Trials (CTT) and Northumberland & Durham Cycling Association (NDCA). Some of our members compete in other disciplines, on an individual basis, but we’re always open to moving the club in new directions whenever the time is right. Perhaps YOU could be instrumental in that?

Off the bike, we meet on the first Monday of the month at the Kingslodge Inn, on Waddington Street in Durham City, DH1 4BG at 7.00 pm.


Get in touch with us formally through our contact form on the home page otherwise post informally on our Facebook forum. Members are invited to join DCV’s WhatsApp and Strava groups.
