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.

The first Club ride of December

The day was not promising on the weather front and only ten riders made an appearance, plus a number in black for the fast sport ride to Frocester. The gentle A ride, led by the Captain, had a watery theme. South by way of the ship canal towpath, dodging many fishermen with mountains of kit. Then the Epney circuit to Saul with splendid views of the grand River Severn. We progressed to Frampton,...

“Mystery Ride” Report

This morning's mystery rides went to Cirencester, although the precise destination was a mystery even to the ride leader after the booked cafe had no space.  After trying three other venues, the West Cornwall Pasty shop made us very welcome. After coffee, we tried to visit both the Carpenter's arms in Miserden and the Black Horse in Cranham, but found that there was "No room at the inn", a...

New page added to the site

After last week's prizegiving members might like to review who won what. They can now do so, and not just for 2019, but for many previous years too. Take a look at the page here https://www.gloscitycc.co.uk/trophies-year-by-year or find it under the RACING tab in our top menu.  

The Club Dinner, and the Morning After

The Club's 128th Annual Prizegiving and Dinner was held at Brickhampton. Over sixty members and guests were graced with the presence of Lady Carolyn Elwas, who had prepared for the event by reading Bicycles and Blancmange. After a hearty three course meal Adrian Pearce entertained us with a slide show that attempted to answer the five questions on every cyclists' mind. Eating on the bike, even...

Remembrance Day

Three rides set off from the Square on a cold and clear Remembrance Day morning. The sport riders headed for the Vale of Evesham. With two planned crossings of the Avon they must have recovered their confidence after the problematic flooded roads they recently encountered! Club A and B category rides headed into the north wind for Ledbury and Trumpet respectively. The Treasurer had nine...

Ride report 03-11 Coleford

After a wet Saturday, Sunday dawned drizzly and grey.  The Vice Captain stood in as an impromptu ride leader and proposed a rather ambitious route to Coleford.  The large number of wet leaves were predicted to be a problem, but caution was observed, and no incidents were noted. Fortunately the weather improved and we were able to enjoy autumnal colours in the Forest of Dean One rider had...

Autumn ride? Time to compete for Bruce’s Bonus

The Vice Captain reports on the B ride to Dursley: Nine riders left King's Square for Falfield this morning. The Vice Captain had originally planned to go over Whiteshill to Stroud, but decided to save time by going through Stonehouse instead. This proved to be a "Tortoise & Hare" decision, as two riders showed how seriously they are taking the "Bruce's Bonus" trophy, awarded for the most...
