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.

Meet our vice captain, who had no mates in the Old Neighbourhood

With the rain forecast to clear early, we set off from King's Square without capes, but were all caped up by the time we reached Matson. Climbing out of Cranham, there was a mutiny.  The ride leader was seen powering up the hill alone as everyone else on the ride took the zig-zag route up the common.  All was forgiven at the re-group, and we continued to Foston's Ash and Bisley as a united...

GCCC getting out more

Eleven riders were present at the ungodly hour of 08:00 to start the ride to Avebury.  The usual route via Foston's Ash and Daneway to Coates was familiar, but after that, we soon entered the less frequented, and flatter lanes of Wiltshire. Coffee was taken at Malmsbury Garden Centre, where one rider said "At least you aren't going up Clyffe Pypard", to which the ride leader responded "We are". ...

The hottest day of the year

It was the hottest day of the year, possible the hottest ever recorded, and the riders faced a tough day ahead with three major climbs and a long run in to the finish. It could have been Stage 18 of the Tour de France, across Col de Vars, Col d’Izoard, and the fearsome Col du Galibier (2642m) before finishing in Valloire but it was instead a group of club members tackling the Harescombe climb to...

National Cycle Network added to online OS Maps

For all you users of Ordnance Survey maps there's some news of interest. The National Cycle Network has been added to online OS Maps. Details of the cycling and walking routes are available as a free layer on the OS Maps website. To view NCN routes on the OS website, click the layer icon, which is bottom-right, and select ‘National Cycle Network’. Alas, its not on the mobile phone app (yet)....

Ground Force One takes off

Three rides today, with the Sports Ride cancelled in favour of the Three Cities. Malcolm G led one containing the President, making it Ground Force One in the parlance of USAF.  Ground Force One accepted the mission profile of circumnavigating Bredon Hill before eleven o'clock and set off at the prescribed 17 mph into a northeasterly wind. Attempts by some to moderate the pace were thwarted by...

Flat roads make for a quick B ride to Tewkesbury

The warm weather brought a qood turnout to the Square, especially considering that the Sport ride had been cancelled to encourage participation in the Three Cities Reliability Trial. Three groups set off, the one led by Malcolm G contained the President making it Ground Force One, in the tradition of the USAF. Ground Force One accepted the mission profile of circumnavigating Bredon Hill before...

Three Cities’ results

13 Riders competed in the "monument" of the cycling season that is the Three Cities. Well done to all. Pete Blencowe, riding as a roadman and a guest in the colours of Cambridge CC, was fastest in an excellent time of 3:34:49, with Tim Buttler second on 3:40:16 and Oli Dammone third on 3:50:22. Full results are here

Two rides on a sunny Sunday in July

One of our members is infamous for trying to avoid bad weather, and has been known to disappear to nearby railway stations in search of transport back to Gloucester. Therefore, when those of us on Colin's C ride  looked from Gretton across the Cotswolds and saw the cloud down it was no surprise that he turned home. The rest of us were rewarded. The sun came out at the top of Stanway Hill, and it...

Aggressive driving around cyclists is on the rise, say drivers

Road safety campaigners are urging everyone to be more Bike Smart and calling on the Government to invest more in cycling safety, as new research indicates an increase in aggressive driving around cyclists over the past five years. The research, taken from a survey of over 1,000 drivers commissioned by Brake and Direct Line and launched during Bike Week (8-16 June), found 4 in 10 think there has...
