Lichfield City Cycling Club is a Go Ride accredited cycling club that embraces all cycling disciplines.
The club is active in bike racing and has an excellent record in success in Road, Cyclo-Cross, Mountain Bike and on the Track. Members of the club have won World Titles and have represented GB at various ages and levels.
The club has actively developed youth racing and has a number of highly skilled coaches dedicated to supporting children and youths from the age of U8 to U16 racing.
The club is very proud of its association with our sponsor – Zipvit. The club kit is great quality and very popular and is available to members at discounted prices.
As well as a proven pedigree in racing the club actively encourages the social riders and has recently introduced rides and coaching aimed at ladies participation. The social Saturday Café ride attracts many riders and usually runs three groups aimed at different levels of ability / speed. All new comers are made very welcome by existing members.
The club committee meet once a month to discuss all current and development aspects of the racing, social and welfare of club. The committee are always keen to hear members views and to gain help and support where required, particularly at race events at Curborough Sprint Course or West Midlands Cyclocross events.

We are planning a nearly normal series of Saturday morning Youth Races this year in the hope that Covid restrictions will allow them to go ahead. They are on
24 Apr 21
22 May 21
19 Jun 21
3 Jul 21
There will be additional restrictions from Covid, certainly for the first one, which is definitely PRE ENTRY only. If restrictions allow some of the later events may have entry on the day. Entries for all these events open on April 1st.
The first event must have as few people on site as possible – so no non-riding children and only one parent in each vehicle. Nobody at all inside the track fence. Masks to be worn when not racing
We intend to run three adult Friday evening races this year as we have done before. The plan is for a ladies race and a Cat3/4 race. Dates will be announced as soon as possible
Covid has affected many of our rides – see News for more details

Lichfield CCC offer a variety of coached sessions run by British Cycling accredited club coaches.
Most coached sessions take part at the Curborough Sprint Circuit (WS13 8EJ) which is a safe closed car race track at 1.4km long and fully visible from the start finish line so fantastic for spectating.
No specific bike or equipment is needed to start with, all are welcome to give cycling a try whether you have a race bike or mountain bike, bring it along and see what we have to offer.
Youth Coaching Objectives
- To develop children with core bike skills with an emphasis on learning to train and enjoyment.
- Encouraging riders to be confident enough to race.
- Developing social and personal skills between peer groups and adult coaching staff which can be used in broader life situations.
