For the first time at Trent Road Cycling and Mountain Biking have merged to create NTU Cycling! Whether you’re a world class athlete, adrenaline junkie or want to try Cycling for the first time, look no further. NTU Cycling has it all!
One of the cheapest sports clubs at Trent welcomes all students! For just £60 can enjoy multiple sessions a week of both road cycling and mountain biking, weekly social events and many trips all over the UK.
For the first time the Road Cycling and Mountain Biking clubs have merged to form NTU Cycling. This means there will be more trips, socials and rides than ever before! The merge has also made the club highly sociable, giving you the opportunity to meet a wide variety of people across the University.
NTU Cycling is for anyone and everyone, from beginners to pros. Our committee and existing members are dedicated to make everyone feel welcome; hosting a wide variety of rides and trips to cater for all abilities.
Weekly rides around Nottingham will be held for Road bikers catering for all levels of ability.
Here at NTU Cycling all disciplines of Mountain Biking are catered for, whether it be Downhill, Enduro or Cross Country, we do it all!
NTU Cycling is also extremely lucky to have our own coach who hosts an indoor fitness session every week in the NTU Gym for no extra cost! Please see the Facebook page for dates and times.
British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS)
There are 5 options for Road cyclists at BUCS, 10 mile Time Trial (TT) race, 25 mile TT, 3UPTT, a Hill climb and a Road Race, all held throughout the country and supported by NTU Cycling!
When it comes to Mountain Biking, BUCS is usually a 3 day event at a DH centre, including practise and the race itself. Last year, the Mountain Bike club managed to get 2 riders into the finals which is a great achievement at a highly competitive event.
The Road cycling taster session will leave from Newton steps in the mini-van, we will drive out to Clifton Campus and go on a relaxed ride so we can judge abilities and allow everyone to get to know each other.
Mountain Biking will be hosting 2 taster sessions, the first will be at Sherwood Pines Trail Centre just outside of Nottingham. Trails here include blue graded trails through to the more difficult black runs so there is something for everyone!
Please see the Facebook and Instagram posts for event times and details.

Sports kit information
For all types of cycling a helmet must be worn at all times, however the club has everything you need available for hire, including bikes and helmets! If you do bring your own bike to Uni then there is a Lock-up under Byron Halls of Residence that students can be granted access to for securely locking up bikes.
There is also a full time mechanic at the lock up able to provide helpful tips and advice should you need anything mending or tuning.
