Welcome to the home of Cog Set and the Cog Set Papyrus Racing Team. 

Cog Set is our Go Ride Club where we welcome riders from ages 6-18. Our aim is to provide a fun, inclusive and friendly environment for young people on their bikes. Our Saturday morning sessions (10am - 12pm) are the heart and soul of our club and riders of all ages and abilities, from little people on their first bike, to lycra clad racers come down to learn, develop and practise their riding and racing skills. Our Saturdays specifically focus on riding bikes suitable for the road and also MTB/cyclocross too. There is something for everyone. 

Cog Set Papyrus Racing Team is the extension of our club where riders who like to compete from the age of 14 upwards can race. We are very proud to be associated with Papyrus, a charity that works tirelessly to prevent suicide in young people. 

We also support riders who wish to develop their velodrome/track skills too.

So please explore the website, find out more and get in touch. We are always happy to meet new folk. 

Otley Gand Prix

A few of the Papyrus and Cog Set riders made the trip to Otley for the 2019 Otley Grand Prix. The sun was out and there were crowds of people lining the finishing straight.

It was very hot and the heat took it's toll on the riders but Tom finished midway down in the lead group of boys and Esther finished 8th in the girls race.

Isle of Man Youth Tour 2019

CogSet Papyrus were well represented at the 2019 Isle of Man Youth Tour.

Stage 1 was not the usually sea front course this year but was still a short time trial but this year was uphill!

Stage 2 was a hill stage that had been part of previous tours but the riders definitely appreciated the fresh tarmac on the descent.

It was the first time our riders had raced on the stage 3 course - it was flat and fast which led to some exciting racing.

Tameside Earlybirds: round 1

The early birds are renowned for hard, fast, and enduring racing and today did not disappoint! After solid performances from the girls, the A boys were the last race of the day. With an extremely strong field, the team knew it would be a tough race and as expected, it split straight from the start.

Whilst Ben, Will and Dylan held their own outside of the top 10, John stayed in the main peloton and as the race came back together in the last 10 laps, a bunch sprint was inevitable. John finished strong to take a top ten place. Overall a great performance from the team.

albaRosa Crit Race Report

The albaRosa crit race on 2nd March at the Brownlee Centre, Leeds gave the Papyrus Race Team their first opportunity to race as a team, with 6 riders racing.

All the Papyrus Race Team riders had an excellent race, each them taking a turn on the front and most in breaks off the front.

John placed the best of the Papyrus riders, finishing 6th after staying in a breakaway of 3 riders that were chasing an earlier breakaway also containing 3 riders.
