Race and Train with Us

All year long we have regular Sports and Chain Gang rides as well as our steady “Club” rides. In Summer our open race programme features road races and time trials and we have a Time Trial every Wednesday.

OVER 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.

Coronavirus update

Not much activity to report from the Club, with everybody self isolating and even the bold ones only riding on their own, so instead here's an excellent summary of tips to avoid contagion from Johns Hopkins University: The virus is not a living organism, but a protein molecule (DNA) covered by a protective layer of lipids (fats) which, if absorbed by the cells of the ocular, nasal or mouth...

Covid -19 (coronavirus) General Advice

As we are all aware, the Covid-19 epidemic now poses a high risk to all of us in the UK. The virus belongs to the same class as those that cause colds but is genetically very different from them. Firstly, this means that, like a cold, it is easy to catch: it is believed that you will catch the illness if you touch your face with hands that have not been washed, if the virus is present on your...

A handful of riders brave the bad weather

With the President, who was set to lead today's ride to Dursley, self isolating with some (thankfully not all) coronavirus symptoms and the Vice Captain suffering cabin fever in Spain where the country's state of emergency had placed the country in lockdown and interrupted his training camp (holiday) the B ride organisation was looking shaky. Fortunately John Cook turned up at Kings Square to...

Colwall blue sky lambs. Spring at last!

Our Sunday ride leader took a route through Redmarley and the Bromsberrow estate and Eastnor, braving Clenchers Mill ford en route. After all the recent rain this was a brave move, one not followed by all, but a successful one. Elevenses were taken at Cafe Morro in Colwall before crossing the Malvern Hills by way of Wyche Cutting to return via Hillend (oil seed rape coming into flower and a...
