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.

Wondering what’s going to happen to the Air Balloon? Plans published for comment

Alas the Air Balloon is to be demolished. Both options for the A417 "missing link" call for it to be razed to the ground. Of perhaps greater interest to us is the vagueness of plans for cyclists to cross the new road, which is certain to be both faster and wider than the present one. To quote the consultation document: "we would seek to maintain existing rights of way and, where possible,...

Did they go in two by two?

The vice captain reports on the Sunday ride, 21st January: One Italian Club member and part-time weather forecaster described this Sunday's conditions as "Biblical".  I take issue with this, as I don't think the bible mentions Noah having to deal with snow as well as rain. Three bold, or perhaps foolish, riders met in King's Square, and collectively made a decision to have a short non-stop...

A cold day for freewheeling

Over forty riders at the Square, some new, some we haven't seen in a while, but all were welcome for a choice of rides. The "Men in Black" sport riders were first out of the gate, keen to get their early season training done. Then the President led 18 more on the B ride, with an unnecessarily circuitous route out of the city revealing an unfamiliar aspect of the Cathedral. Although the route was...

A mid week ride, with added Malvern spring water

Despite indifferent weather eleven members managed a mid week ride that was rewarded with fresh spring water, and this view of Elgar and the Enigma, not to mention the excellent food and selection of teas at the Bluebird tea rooms.
