Welcome to the Nova Raiders Cycling Club Newport Shropshire
In September 2009, twelve friends completed the gruelling 450 mile Pyrenean Raid Cycle Challenge and early the following year the Nova Raiders Cycling Club was formed, Nova Raiders have come a long way in a short time and in May 2012 Nova Raiders organised the “Route 66 Sportive” which attracted over 300 cyclists and raised £4,500 towards Newport RUFC’s new clubhouse. In fact, to date, Nova Raiders has raised over £35,000 for local and national charities.
Nova Raiders has grown rapidly and now has over 45 members. Nova Raiders pride themselves on being a friendly, social club that welcomes all ages and abilities. Every Sunday there is a 45/50 mile club run with a café stop at around the halfway point. These are becoming increasingly well attended and after being asked to initiate a ride for those who are new to the sport and would like a shorter distance we now have a Saturday cycle run with experienced Raiders on hand to give advice and assistance if required. Both club runs start at 9am from the Shell Garage, Newport.
In the lighter spring/summer months Nova Raiders also have club runs starting at 6pm from the Shell Garage, Newport and these are typically 20/25 miles in distance.
Nova Raiders look forward to seeing you soon at one of their weekend club runs.
