We are a cycling club that serves the areas of North Denbighshire and beyond, based at Marsh Tracks, Marsh Road, Rhyl LL18 2AD. There is a busy weekly programme of events, both on quiet country roads in the county and at the new 1.25km road circuit in Rhyl.
The club was formed in 1978 and changed names slightly (from Rhyl Road Club) in the mid-nineties. A proud moment was in 2008 when we obtained 'Clubmark' status for being a model club in terms of how we structure, organise and provide activities for our members, particularly for youth. The club currently has a world mountain bike orienteering champion in its midst, Sarah Bayliss (Veteran Womens Gold Medalist, 2010) and also saw Richard Hughes (now a Cheshire physiotherapist) cross the line in club colours in 1989 as winner of the UK National Junior Road Race Championship in Lincoln and National Junior Pursuit titles, arguably the most prestigious victories in our 30 plus years existence so far by a rider wearing the orange of 'the Rhyl'. One of our most famous former members is none other than Dave Brailsford, who masterminded Bradley Wiggins and British Cycling's climb to the pinnacle of world cycling, the Tour De France in 2012.
As well as riding in the World Cyclo-Cross Championships (Switzerland) for GB in 1968, former chairman and club stalwart Maurice Broadbent (1944-2006) won a Welsh Veterans Cyclo-Cross title during his many years in our club. Former pros such as Phil Evans and Paul Gerrard also rode with great distinction throughout their stay with the club.
We have welcomed other nationalities into the club who have gone on to success whilst with us, young Canadian Paul Kotyk won the Welsh Schoolboy Cyclo-Cross title (1992)and South African doctor Richard de Villiers (whilst working at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd) took the Welsh Triathlon Championship as Rhyl RC competitors.
Gwyn Lovibond became a regular wearer of the Welsh jersey in junior stage races at home and abroad in 2013.
All, and we mean all, ages are welcome. We have something for everyone.
