The cycle club has gone from strength to strength since it was set up by four men in March and now boasts 200 members.

It aims to provide a positive lasting legacy of cycling in Ilkeston and develop something the town can feel proud of.

An awards night recently saw British cycling guru Sir Dave Brailsford, now a club member, present the prizes and there were video messages of support from some of the sport’s stars.
