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.

Time Trial cancellation

The Wednesday evening time trials were due to start on 27th but due to the fact that the clocks are changing to British Summer Time one week later this year the decision has been taken (on safety grounds) to cancel next week's race at Hardwicke. The programme will start with the roadman's race at Elmore on 3rd April. Put it in your diary people, road bikes only.

Club Ride 17 March – it’s an A Ride

The scheduled Club ride to Berkeley on this coming Sunday will be an A Ride, contrary to the previous Calendar entry. Here is a link to the route out; https://ridewithgps.com/routes/29349086 . Watch Facebook for a proposed route to the Red Lion, at Arlingham, for those riders who wish to stay out for lunch. It may well be that someone will be motivated to lead a more challenging B Ride, should...

The Met Office forecast winds gusting to 40 mph but the morning sunshine still tempted riders out

Considering the forecast of strong winds, I was surprised at the numbers in the Square.  Nine set off on the B ride to Cirencester. Two left us at the top of Nut Hill, and then our sole lady announced that she had a tree to fell and left us at the top of Sanatorium road. Not having the courage to argue with a woman with chainsaw, the Vice Captain had no issue with this. The warnings to be...

Camera evidence of bad driving

There's been some interest in whether helmet cam evidence will be accepted by the local police force as evidence. We've been advised that it will, and that it should be sent with details of the incident, as soon as possible afterwards, to: Force.ControlRoom@gloucestershire.pnn.police.uk Let's hope you never need to use this, but if you do its good to know there is a process in...

It’s Pothole Week!

Pothole Watch begins on Sunday 3 March and Cycling UK is calling on all of you to help raise awareness of the size and depth of the pothole problem. Many of you will be familiar with the Fill That Hole app, we're asking that all next week you ensure you report as many potholes as you can. Potholes are not just an annoyance, they put cyclists at serious risk of injury. They are calling for...

The first Sunday rides of March

Recent development in meteorology have included the naming of storms and an enhanced ability to forecast them. Thus it was that the Square had far fewer riders than of late. Storm Freya was expected to put an end to the unseasonable warm weather we’d been enjoying and deterred many from attending, the Captain and Vice-Captain amongst them. Nonetheless three hardy ride leaders presented...

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...

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...
