Race and Train with Us

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

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.

Club Rides to restart

Sunday, 5th July, sees the first club ride for some time. The destination for the B ride is the Woodlands cafe in Cinderford. If anyone wants to lead a shorter ride to Birdwood or Huntley, please let the Vice Captain know. We will be asking riders to ride in small groups of up to six, leaving at 2-3 minute intervals. For this reason, it would be good if iders would turn up with the proposed...

Racing and Training in July

The club has been carefully monitoring government regulations, advice from cycling governing bodies, and observing what is happening in practice around our area and now believes there is a case for some club activities to recommence from Sunday 5th July. We recognise that each individual member has different circumstances with respect to virus risks and consequences for themselves and those in...

Longford Roundabout

A Club member has been injured in a collision on the Longford roundabout this week. It is the second such accident there in recent years. The website CrashMap shows it to have had seven cycling incidents reported by police, two serious, in the previous five years. Most were in the North East (outbound) quadrant. In contrast the Over roundbout has had one and Elmbridge Court none, showing that...

Mountain bike riding on Painswick Beacon

The weather has made for perfect trail riding conditions and we hope those members whose interests stray away from blacktop have been able to enjoy them. We are legally permitted to ride on bridleways (but not footpaths) but paths on common land and in woodland can be a bit ambiguous on the ground, with some permissive paths and some unauthorised ones that may be as obvious, or occasionally more...

Cycling Time Trials update on events

CTT hopes that it will be possible for events to take place, perhaps initially in some limited form, in the not too distant future.  We understand that the government is looking at ways outdoor sport and social activity can resume, although currently we don’t know when that will be. Presently all CTT events are suspended up to and including 30 June.  There is to be further government guidance...

Stay Alert or Stay At Home? New guidance for cycling

On Sunday 10th May, the Prime Minister said that ‘Stay At Home’ has become ‘Stay Alert’. and announced the relaxation of some rules about exercising. It is now acceptable (in England at least) to exercise as much as you like, not just for one short period a day. Also, it is now acceptable to meet someone from outside your own household if it is kept to one-on-one (no groups) and social...
