130 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.

Climbing has its rewards

Eleven members left Kings Square on the “slower” B ride at the earlier time of 8.30. The closed Brookfield Road bridge meant a detour but it did mean they could enjoy the roller coaster ride up Cold Pool Lane and the delights of Charlton Kings. A gentle climb of the A40 brought them to Whittington and Syreford followed by a mystery tour of Hazleton, Hampnett popping out at the Prison café. Seven continued after coffee and were soon soaking up the views of the Coln Valley all the way to...

Superb scenery

Seven riders left the Square for a reasonably direct route to Northleach, and picked up another rider in Brockworth, before attacking Ham Hill. A breakaway on the descent to Syreford was fooled by the unusual routing, as they turned left for the more usual route via Brockhampton. However, we soon regrouped, and continued on the published route past the crocodile at Compton Abdale and on to coffee. A hare was spotted running across a field on the way. After coffee, we headed over to the...

A perfect spring day

The club group, amounting to ten to start with, took off south and made their way through Kingsway and over the M5 towards Stonehouse. All was going well to this point, when Paul had to head for home to change machines (a slow deflation, and keen not to catch a Bruce’s Bonus point). The President was next to depart near Stroud, as the hills loomed. A short stretch of canal towpath took us to the Sainsbury’s round-a-bout, then up the first incline to Rodborough. The Butterow lane was a true...

Spectacular countryside

Eight sport riders left the still unfinished King’s Square for the usual route to Brimpsfield and High Cross. A breakaway rider took some catching before Woodmancote, but he was caught, allowing the whole group to enjoy the beautiful lane through Bagendon. A second 2-person breakaway formed, but when Park Corner was reached, the group was once again complete. On the approach to Cherington, D realised that our plans of coffee and cake in Tetbury didn’t meet his requirements, so left us to...
