Welcome to Nova Raiders Cycling Club, Sponsored by Joule’s Brewery. We are a cycling club with a difference. Originally formed by a small band of friends whose premise was to use cycling to raise money for good causes, Nova Raiders has grown into a social riding community that welcomes riders of all ages and abilities. Members enjoy riding for pleasure in club rides or sportives, taking part in duathlons and triathlons, competing in criteriums, battling against other time trialists or racing in the road race league.

True to the original club vision Nova Raiders still host regular events in order to raise money for good causes. This year money will be raised through our Route 66 Sportive, our Reliability Ride, Time Trials and our Joules Challenge in September.

The club now offers up to six group rides per week to cover all ability levels, see events diary for full details. Members also benefit from a mailing group with more informal rides arranged on a regular basis.

For those new to cycling why not try one of our “Come and Try” nights advertised through our events diary, or pop into Nova Cycles on Newport High Street for information on how to get involved in cycling.

If you are interested in joining us please drop us a line through our Contact page or pop into Nova Cycles for more information.
