Kiveton Park Cycling Club is a friendly local cycling club catering for around 70 members of varying ability levels. Members come from the local Kiveton Park and Wales community as well as neighbouring villages, Rotherham, Worksop, Clowne, Eckington and South-east Sheffield with a few members even further afield. The club is actively involved in cycle racing as well as social and training rides, occasional mountain biking and other cycling events. Meetings are held every second Thursday night at The Beehive Public house, Harthill in their function room between September and March. Meetings kick off at 8pm (ish) and all are welcome. We are also one of five Clubs who compete in the North Midlands Inter Club Time Trial competition and were the 2013 Champions.
The Club was formed in 1929 by miners from Kiveton Park Colliery and has a long history with some distinguished riders especially in its formative years. A declining membership in the 1980’s left the club with only a handful of members and it was only through the efforts of Ray Howson, the Honorary Club President, which saved the club from extinction. Fortunes improved in the 1990’s and in 1993 Phil Barlow was the National 24 hour time trial champion riding 490 miles. Together with Paul Bland and Pete Goodfellow, Kiveton Park also won the National 24 hour team championship with a combined distance of 1408 miles. This is still the third highest mileage recorded ever. Although racing success has not achieved the same level of success since 1993 we have some very good riders but that is not all the club is about. Riding bicycles is what we love and in 2004 we celebrated our 75th anniversary and produced a special red version of our white jersey design. Both styles have been retained are still available for members to buy. In 2011 our membership numbers peaked at 77 which is the highest in living memory.
