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.

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...

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...

The Holly Run

A "semi-dry" ride after a deluge on Saturday. The A/AA party, some dressed for the occasion, took Maisemore & Wooldridge Hill on the Over Old Road, where they lost Charles to fatigue. Ashleworth and Tirley where they paused to assist with a broken tandem, but all was well - they were 'sorted'. Apperley and Deerhurst led to the A38 where the remaining three Tyndale Section riders headed for...

2019 Club race calendar released

It's the time of year when training programmes are prepared and started. A key element is to have suitable target events and thanks to Tony, our Racing Secretary, we have just the thing for you - the 2019 race calendar. It's available to view and download here http://www.gloscitycc.co.uk/ride-schedule/ Over the next few days the events will also be transferred to the club calendar. This year we...

Good weather for December

Mild but blustery was obviously deemed to be good weather for December, as there was a fairly large turn-out in King's Square. A large sports ride departed for Frocester, an A and a B ride to Malvern and another A ride to the Stroud Carol Service. The A ride to Malvern had 7 riders, who enjoyed the descent of Wainlode Hill, and the lanes to Forthampton. Bredon School proved to be a poor choice...

A blustery day’s rides

A blustery day saw surprisingly high numbers in King's Square, and as the B ride left, it became apparent that it would be too big to manage. Simon volunteered an alternative ride, and six who really ought to know what a "Simon alternative" will be like, followed him.  True to form, he went looking for hills, but they were hills we don't often frequent.  Out through Churchdown took us to the...

127th Annual Prize Giving and Dinner

The dinner, held at Brickhampton Golf Resort, was a tremendous success. This was thanks in no small part to Marie Cook organizing the event, Derek Dowdeswell the trophies, and Colin Edmonds the menus. Marie was presented with the T.G.Hall Clubman of the Year trophy. This, and the other serious trophies, were presented by the guest speaker, Alan Murchison, after his interesting and illuminating...

New ride added to calendar

We have added a club ride to the Carol Service in Stroud on 9th December, which will be led by Toby. More details here.

A ride to Ross on Wye

Considering the annual GCCC dinner had taken place the previous evening there was a good turn out of riders in the Kings Square at 9 o' clock. However, as I watched the various riders pull off with their respective 'B' ride leaders it soon became apparent that there were very few riders for the A ride....not even a few...there were actually two, ride leader plus one. This had never happened to...
