Welcome to Yorkshire Lasses Cycling Club
The Yorkshire Lass Cycle Club (YLCC) was established in 2015 by two friends, Kate and Jude, who wanted to improve the opportunity of club riding for ladies. YLCC is based in Wetherby and attracts women cyclists from across all of Yorkshire.
The aim of the club is to promote ladies cycling in a friendly, helpful, encouraging environment, in some of the most beautiful countryside Yorkshire has to offer.
We encourage ladies of all abilities to join the club to build up confidence and feel empowered to get on their bike.
Our recommendation is that you are capable of riding a minimum of 10 miles and are happy to cycle on roads at a minimum speed of 10mph before joining, this is for yours and the other members safety. If you aren’t up to this then do feel free to contact the club to discuss further – we don’t want to turn women away.
Our new membership year starts on the 1st April and runs for a year. Our membership window is open from the 1st -30th April annually and the membership year runs from 1st April – 31st March annually.
We always offer a selection of rides for new members during the month of April, you can join us for a ride before becoming a member to see whether the club is right for you -‘Try before you buy’.
Check out our membership page for member discounts and more details about how to join our Yorkshire Lass Cycling Club.
We generally have regular rides out on Sunday mornings – weather permitting.
We also love to get muddy too and offer mountain bike rides on various days.
We have a closed Facebook group where you can chat to other members and arrange informal rides and training in addition to all the official club rides we do which are posted as events on the group page.
Our rides vary from 10-100 miles and we have four categories of rides. Leisure, steady, twixt and moderate. See the ride definitions on the membership page for more details.
We always try to incorporate a cafe stop for a cuppa and cake on all rides!
Yorkshire Lass Cycling Club is also big on the social side too having regular social events throughout the year.
When out an about if you see a Yorkshire Lass don’t forget to give a shout out “Ey up Lasses”!

Following our 2018 sportive this number is set to increase – watch this space!
In 2018 YLCC we supported PSPA.
