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.

Sunday rides on 18th January, cold and clear

Eight Sports Riders took on the elements (-2 degrees at 9.00 am)  and set off on a ride to the Malverns. They stayed mainly on A roads due to icy conditions, but everyone worked well and did their work on the front in a tight controlled group. We rode out via Tewkesbury, Bredon, Defford, Upton on Severn, and then climbed up to British Camp, which certainly warmed everyone up. The sunshine and...

The slower (but hillier) Club B ride

Having missed the change of venue notification, the Captain led a slower-paced B ride to the original cafe selection at Hopewell Colliery. Departing a noisy Kings Square a group of nine riders took the route to Highnam and Tibberton where an enforced rest was called for a repair to a deflated rear tyre. This put the Captain in joint lead for Bruce's Bonus with Mark B, both on three punctures. A...

Cinderford, with wet feet

Very noisy tree work in King's Square made for a slightly confusing start, but eventually the rides sorted themselves out, and eight of us set off on the "faster B" ride to Cinderford. It was a well-matched group and stayed together well. Muddy and sometimes flooded lanes proved to be the main feature of the ride, and there were many complaints that mudguards were not long enough, especially the...

Stroud, by a variety of routes

Whether inspired by a New Year's desire to get fit, or to lose weight, or by the wonderful weather forecast, there was a large crowd in King's Square for this morning's rides.  The weather forecast proved as truthful as a Donald Trump Tweet, with spells of quite unpleasant mizzle. The ride was advertised as particularly hilly, and the organiser probably could have guessed which riders would opt...

New Year’s Day 2020

Six riders enjoyed the New Year's Day ride. The climb to Foston's Ash was followed with a swift descent through Slad, enjoying the new smooth tarmac on the way into Stroud (route details here). Passing a traction engine in Stonehouse, we ended up in Costa Coffee on the Quedgeley Bypass. Not being a regular Costa customer, I was surprised by the swimming-pool sized coffee that appeared. A very...

Sunday after Christmas

Final Club ride of the decade. Cool (9 degrees) and dry; twelve left the Square on a route east of the River Severn, avoiding flooded roads. Zig zag through Churchdown then past the airport to Staverton. Through Barrow on the lanes then Piffs Elm to Bishops Cleeve, Gotherington and Ashchurch before taking Northway to Coffee #1 in the Hight Street, Browns being closed for the holiday, where we...

Merry Christmas everyone, now a dose of reality

Just in case anyone a bike for Christmas, they may like to note that the police are having post coding events  for bike marking as below: 25th January at Up Hatherley Village Hall in Cheltenham 8th February at The Hub in Churchdown (Opposite the big Tesco store on the Old Gloucester Road) Both events will run from 10am until 2pm.

Sunshine at last!

When the ride leader sent me the route, saying he couldn't make the ride, I didn't spot the bear-trap he had laid. I did spot a lane we don't normally use from Cranham Corner to Sheepscombe, so on Saturday, I went to have a look, and quickly discovered why we don't use it. Deciding it would be dangerous for a group, but enjoying the views from the Sheepscombe to Bulls Cross lane, I plotted a...
