Plomesgate comes from name of the old county ‘hundred’ area that covered much of the beautiful Suffolk Coastal area where the club is based. Typically our members and events are based in the area north of Ipswich encompassing Woodbridge, Saxmundham, Aldeburgh & Framlingham but we do have members from further afield. To keep members up to date with news about what club members have been doing, what is going on or interesting, we produce a monthly newsletter.
The club organises events throughout the year including:
- An evening time trial series each year for 5 and 10 mile trials which are popular with our club members at all levels but we do enjoy having visiting local riders along too.
- Open 10 an 25 mile time trial events as part of the SPOCO East series in which riders from all over the region compete
- Grass Track race which regular includes National Level races and attracts competitors from across the country
- Saturday Training Rides
Plomesgate CC strongly recommends the wearing of a helmet by all riders in our club and open events including club rides.
The club is affiliated to CTT (Cycle Time Trials) who run time trials in the UK, so as a member you are able to enter other clubs’ open events.
