125 YEARS OF CYCLING

We organise social and recreational Club rides.

Welcome to Gloucester City Cycling Club

The Club is active throughout the year and supports social and cycling events at all levels. We tour, at home and abroad. We race – time trials, road races and cyclo-cross with some track thrown in too. We also campaign for better, safer cycling in our area.

Check out our ride categories and Calendar, then come along and make yourself known to the ride leader. Or have a go at a Club Time Trial on Day Membership.

We welcome anyone who cycles for commuting, pleasure or sport.

Soudley, a hilly alternative

The ride was advertised as a hilly alternative, and did its best to live up to expectations. After running through Tibberton & Taynton, we warmed up on the A40 over May Hill, then descended down into the Walford Valley. Howle Hill was a real treat, it just kept going for ages.After that, we took a minor road with a poor surface and steep gradients through Puddlebrook to Drybrook, which led...

Eroica Gaiole 2018

There is a longer version of an article published in the Winter 2019 edition of Spokespiece, written by  by Mike Thomas (above) of the Club's Tyndale section, which can be read here

Falfield rides, February 10th

Despite a damp start, there were quite a few riders in the Square this morning. 13 set off on the B ride to Falfield, and were treated to lung-busting Frocester Hill and the excellent descent into Wooton. A Hail-storm coming through Matson on the way home was not pleasant, and nor was that horrible pain as my feet defrosted in the shower. However, given that its February, it was a good ride. The...

Winter is here, and Spring is coming

Yes, the Winter Spokespiece is here, and the events lists for Spring are now available. We have published  the Winter edition of Spokespiece. It, and all  previous editions are available to view and download at http://www.gloscitycc.co.uk/spokespiece-magazine/  The 2019 racing calendar is included on page 15 and here. The Sunday runs and Tuesday evening rides from now until the end of May are...

A and AA Club Rides 3 February – CANCELLED

The lanes around Tibberton still have patches of black ice. It might still be possible to safely use the Newent road, but where's the fun in that? Rather than play the cycling equivalent of Russian Roulette and risk a season-ending injury, better to call it a day (a turbo day?).

Winter Spokespiece is here

The new edition of Spokespiece is now ready to read and download. It features the Annual Prizegiving, the McLeod Trophy winning tour of the Cambrian Mountains, the rather wet and windy Autumn Club Tour, a few thoughts on rider safey from the winner of the Golden Stabilisers, riding the Eroica on Tuscany's white roads, and a suggestion on what to do with a day in Furness. For the racing...

A cold ride to Hailes Fruit Farm cafe

A great day out with the Gloucester City Cycling Club. Five took in the AA option, another the A ride with ten taking the tougher B ride which took the Ham Hill challenge out of Charlton Kings. Five on the sports ride and there was also a small MTB group making four groups riding to Haile's for elevenses. The AA group headed towards Gotherington where they saw our first lambs. Up by the Prescott...

Mountain bike ride added to next Sunday’s events

See http://www.gloscitycc.co.uk/event/mtb-ride-to-hayles-fruit-farm/ for details of an off road alternative to the A/AA rides on 20th January

Naas Lane Road Closure

A temporary road closure has been granted for installation of a new water main. Since the same works on Brookthorpe Road at Haresfield made the that road impassable (to all but the most persistent, at least) this closure is worth factoring into your riding plans.

Update on ICE tags

Many of our members have taken advantage of the Club's "In Case of Emergency" tags and are now happily riding around the county with them. Some have even been surprised to receive a second set. The reason is that our supplier accidentally omited the PIN from the first batch. Whilst they were usable, without the PIN first responders wouldn't be able to access any confidential details members had...
