The SK6 Spinners CC (Marple)
The SK6 Spinners CC are a Cycling UK affiliated road cycling group based in Marple, Stockport.
Founded in October 2015, we pride ourselves on being a friendly group with a social and inclusive emphasis - and that includes a good gender mix. We try to cater for a range of abilities, from those who ride regularly at a decent pace, to those still finding their feet - and fitness - on the road.
We ride every week on a Sunday, 7.30am, usually with an A (faster) and B (more social) ride on offer, between 20 and 30 miles. We do like Peak District hills, and the stunning views that brings, but we do also occasionally do flatter rides into Cheshire. We generally go for coffee afterwards - and then get on and enjoy the rest of the day with families and friends.
In the summer, we also ride on Thursday evenings, followed by a pint at our sponsors, Beer Traders. Some members also ride informally during the week.
We are a fast-growing club, which offers social activities and special events such as theatre trips and indoor cycling sessions to our members. We allow non-members to ride with us several times before being required to join up.

A typical ride is roughly between 20-30 miles - A ride - average 15mph and B - average 12mph with elevation between 1000ft - 2000ft of climbing. Own pace on the hills and regroup at the top. On a flat ride same distance then an A ride - average 17mph and B - average 15mph. No one gets left behind and will always ride in a group.
