Founded in the year 2011 by Aman Puri, Noida Cycling Club was started to promote cycling and motivate masses to get into the sport. And hey, not just this but with this, Aman also wanted to take an initiative to protect the environment and bring together like-minded people who would enjoy riding together on weekends (who would?)
For Noida’s bold new cyclists, cycling is not just about fitness, but also about fun, food and bonding. With the membership growing fast, the Noida Cycling Club, popularly known as NCC, gets 50 new members every month. With more than 5,000 members already part of NCC, it is fast catching up with other cycling clubs in the NCR region.
As for levels, and how to start cycling with them, NCC organizes beginners’ rides every Saturday for those looking for a casual ride. On Sundays, they organise longer rides that extend all the way up to India Gate and/or Terminal-3. The crew assembles at a pre-ordained spot, which is either GIP or Akshardham Metro Station, and makes sure to have fun together.
They also have a prestigious rider of the month status, the celebration of which is held at different venues, decided by the crew.
To be able to ride with them, you will need to have some basic equipment in place, including a helmet and a spare tube. We advise you carry water (especially in this weather), and some extra cash in case there are any unforeseen situations.
So, are you ready?
