About us 

The Windmill Club is a Cycling UK affiliated group. The club is based at The Pheasant in Great Chishill, on the borders of Cambridgeshire, Essex and Hertfordshire. Great Chishill is 9 miles from Saffron Walden, 5 miles from Royston and 19 miles from Cambridge. Rides take place twice a week - approx. 20 /25 miles on a Monday afternoon / evening and approx. 30/45 miles on Thursday mornings, usually in the lovely quiet lanes surrounding this area.  During the summer months rides sometimes start at locations in Suffolk or Norfolk and take in places such as Aldeburgh, Southwold or Wells. The pace is leisurely and there is as much focus on good companionship, conversation and coffee / pub stops as there is on cycling. Each ride costs £3.00 and the proceeds are donated to various charities at the end of each year. So far, over £5,000 has been raised.
