    Starley Network

    We are really please to see that the Starley name has been given pride of place in West Midlands Network rebranding. The newly rebranded Starley Network pulls together existing routes and towpaths, proposed new cycling infrastructure, and new pop-up lanes funded through the Emergency Active Travel Fund. Local authorities have worked closely with TfWM to link their local cycling plans into a region-wide network for the first time, showcasing the true scope of the future cycling network.  There is a long way to go before we have a network as good as Belgium or Holland but at least it’s a start. We would encourage all riders to challenge their local councils and make this…

The Starley short route on beautiful, quiet country roads is a perfect introduction to riding an event either for beginners or confident young riders.  28 miles but with lovely rolling roads.  There…

    Heidi’s 2019 Starley Sportive

    I never thought that at the age of 44 I would be buying my first road bike in September 2019, a Liv Avail Advance 3, full carbon, hydraulic disc brakes and tubeless set up, a far cry from my green Raleigh Grifter that I had as a kid.   I have always enjoyed riding a bike but never really had the confidence to ride on the roads. It wasn’t until 2016 that I bought a new hybrid bike and started to go out on short rides up to and around the local Memorial Park.  In October 2016 I fell off my bike and it knocked my confidence, so I didn’t…

    Meet The Team, part 2

    Hi, I’m Edward Hudson, Business Development Manager at Deeley Group.  As a Construction and Property firm, we always want to make a positive impact in the communities we work in by delivering new housing or creating new teaching spaces at the schools, colleges and universities in the region.  The Deeley Group has always had a strong feeling for delivering charitable projects such as the refurbishment at Samaritans call centre in Coventry or kitchen refurbishment at Orbit Homes’ Loxley Court.  So when Coventry Road Club approached us looking for a new host for the event HQ in 2016, we were more than happy to help.  The Coventry Road Club team, spearheaded…
