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.

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...

A Tour of the North Cotswolds

Our Vice Captain promised some hills on his C category “Longest Day” ride and he didn’t disappoint those who followed him. Another group of older and perhaps wiser heads met him for the early start at the Square to declare their intent of following another route and, of course, qualify for their Dancey Trophy points. The promise of a leg stretching climb up Ham Hill was thwarted by resurfacing...

Grand Prize Draw – we have a winner!

With the monsoon still clearing the country, I thought it was foolish to head to Wales…

With the monsoon still clearing the country, I thought it was foolish to head to Wales, but as I had advertised the ride, I had to go. Being a motor-assisted ride, two of us drove to Monmouth, to meet the third member of the group who clearly struggled with the concept and had ridden there. A heavy shower while unpacking the car was avoided by sitting in the car, and then we set off on the hilly...
