About Us

Our History

The Pendle Forest or PF for short was founded in 1931 by a small group who worked together at a local Pendle mill. The club recorded its highest membership in the 1970s with almost 100 members.


We have approximately 50 members from in and around the Nelson, Colne and Burnley areas. The club offers something for everyone interested in cycling, touring, road racing, track racing, mountain biking and time-trialing.  Thinking of joining the club? contact the club secretary for further information and advice, click here to go to ‘Contact Us’ page.

Cycling for Fun

The club organises social rides in the evenings and weekends, plus social events and weekends away throughout the year. Details for regular clubs runs and forthcoming events can be found in ‘what’s on‘ section of the web site, but are also advertised in the local press.


The Pendle Forest organises our own fortnightly time-trial series during the racing season. This is ideal for beginners breaking into the sport. And being a member of the PF you could also enter any one of the ‘open events’ held by other clubs. To enter an open event you must complete a CTT (Cycling Time Trial) entry form, available from their web-site www.CTT.org.uk.For more information you can also contact the club secretary who will have a list of open events, go to ‘contacts us‘ page
