Scarborough Paragon Cycling Club secured the top community sports club award.

The cycling club was established in 1953 and is still going strong, with a big increase in family and juvenile club membership.

The free Come and Try It events have also been a big hit, especially as they are open to the community and membership is not necessary.

The club provided 39 cycling events in 2011 and also had volunteer marshals and officials at the Scarborough Cycling Festival.
