M&DLCA - About Us

The Manchester and District Ladies Cycling Association was formed in 1949 to encourage ladies cycle racing, especially Time Trials. Membership is open to individuals and clubs in the Manchester area.

Each year the M&DLCA promotes three 10 mile time trials, two 25 mile time trials and one 50 mile time trial (see events page).

We hold a Best All Rounder competition based on a rider's average speed over 10, 25 and 50 miles, with a cup being awarded to the winner, a team shield for the best team of 2 and medals for the top 6 qualifiers. We have recently extended the qualifing rides and these are now the three 10 M&DLCA Time Trials (see events page), and any 25 or 50 mile Time Trial on a Cheshire course (J).

To qualify for any of the M&DLCA trophies you need to be affiliated to the Association either as a private member for £1 per year, or your club can affiliate for £5 per year. For more information about the M&DLCA, or if you wish to affiliate, download an affiliation form for clubs or email us.

We organise a ladies weekend away to Wales in September and hold a dinner dance in November.
