 About us

For those interested in joining our club, please email club Secretary Gill Staines at


Velo Moira is a friendly, social road cycling club based in Moira, Leicestershire. We are a group of like minded cyclists who enjoy riding as a group. Velo Moira aims to provide a very welcoming, safe and enjoyable cycling environment.

Our club ethos is 'nobody is left behind.' New members are always welcome to join us, with no obligation to join the club straight away.

Velo Moira is welcoming of all cyclists with our current membership including a wide range of ages and a growing number of female riders. For more information about joining VM see our Membership Information page, where you will find an application form. 

Our Saturday social ride attracts the most VM members as we usually put out three groups of riders catering for all abilities. There is normally a longer tempo ride on a Sunday, and in true cycling tradition all weekend rides include a café stop for coffee and cake.  More details on our weekly rides can be found on our FB page.

In the summer months we meet at 0815 for an 0830 depart from Moira Furnace car park.. Each group has a nominated Ride Leader who is responsible for the route and maintaining the pace to suit the ability of the group as a whole. We allocate the groups in advance and keep the group sizes to around 8 which we have found adds to the safety and enjoyment of all riders.  

We also have occasional social evenings where members can meet up to have something to eat and a drink (or two) and discuss all things cycling related!
