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.

Racing Calendar updated

The calendar is back on line, with a new look. Some of the race details have changed becauses we have finalised details of the interclub events and acknowledged that the Pendock bridgeworks will probably not be completed this season, obliging us to use two laps of the shorter, seven mile, course. In brief, the changes are as follows: * 1/04 event is cancelled * 20/05 is now a 10 on the UC713...

Web site and weather problems

The calendar of events is presenlty not working. If there is an upside to this, it is that events this weekend have been cancelled due to storm Dennis. Normal service of both the web site and the weather will be resumed as soon as possible.

Severe weather warning (again)

Last Sunday's rides were lost to the inclement weather and Storm Dennis has led us to cancel this weekend's activities also. Remember, if you do ride it is at your own risk.

Is there anybody out there?

Today's ride was brought forward from Sunday because of the threat of the imminent Storm Ciara. Alas, efforts to publicise the change on FaceBook and this site seem to have gone (almost) unnoticed since only one rider joined the President for his B category ride to Ross, and he had to head back home as soon as he remembered his "honeydos". Since one of those was to pick up his wife at the...

Adverse weather will affect this weekend’s rides

In view of the forecast stormy weather ("Heavy rain and strong winds Sunday, followed by blustery showers") this weekend's  Sport Ride and B category Club ride are being held on Saturday instead of Sunday. The leader of Sunday's A ride is considering whether that too should be brought forward. Keep an aye on this site and FaceBook for an update.

Our first ride of February

Vice Captain's ride report When you are going well on the bike, hills are a real pleasure. Effortlessly gaining altitude, and sometimes being able to give a cheeky look over your shoulder at your suffering mates, in the style of "he who shall not be named" looking at Jan Ulrich. When you are still carrying a few extra pounds from Christmas, when breathing becomes laboured, and when your legs are...

Winter edition of Spokespiece has been published

This edition includes reports from two tours, some club rides, and the prize preserntation, as well as a little taste of history, including the best times of last season, and several tips on saving money and using the web site. You can view, download, or print it here. Happy reading!

Ask not for whom the wind blows… Vice Captain’s report

Riders generally prefer riding into the wind in the morning, with the hope of getting blown home. Therefore, Croome Park would not have been the obvious choice for this morning's ride. Seven riders hoisted their sails in King's Square and set off to Croome Park, hardly having to pressure the pedals at all. Apart from a detour through the Walton Cardiff estates, where even the club's own Sat-Nev...

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...
