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.

Trophy Claims now due

It is now time to make your claim for any cycling trophies for 2019. Please review the Trophy page and let Derek Dowdeswell know your claim. He is not a mind reader and does not know of all the activities of club members so even if you think you are not eligible for an award or not sure which one PLEASE claim and leave him to sort it out, including a link to proof to make the job easier if you...

Gibb Shield results

With the completion of the final event in the competition we now have a winner of the Gibb Shield, which is awarded for the season long social competition. In the Treasure Hunt, Mr. And Mrs. Wareing triumphed over Toby Wooldridge, with Natalie Sallis taking the third podium place. The two rounds of speed judging were won by Rob from Alastair and Colin at Bulley Lane. Colin beat Les and Alastair...

The carpenter leads the way

Mike B must have had his carpentry tools out when planning today’s route to Kemble; the straight edge across the map and the edge of his saw for the profile. We set our compasses on the requisite bearing of 150˚ for a full-frontal assault from the Kings Head up to Painswick Beacon. That brought our first “1 in 6” climb, with a swooping descent through Sheepscombe finding us a couple more on the...

Three Castles, Two Priories, One Black Mountain

Five riders set off from the Square, taking a route down Southgate to visit Llanthony Secuda Priory before speeding out along the Newent Road to enjoy the light traffic an early start had afforded. Once past the motorway they enjoyed a clear run to Hereford and quiet B roads to Hay. Refreshed and replenished, they hit the road to the Gospel Pass. A temperature of 30°C on the way up surely made...

Roger Ellery Clayton 1939-2019 (POST UPDATED)

It is with sadness that we report that long time member of the Club Roger Clayton has passed away. Roger Clayton, born 18th November 1939, cycled off peacefully August 21st 2019. His family would like to thank everyone for their kindness and support over the past year, especially the people of Tewkesbury, Tirley and the brilliant NHS staff for the exceptional care he received. On Friday 30th...

Meet our vice captain, who had no mates in the Old Neighbourhood

With the rain forecast to clear early, we set off from King's Square without capes, but were all caped up by the time we reached Matson. Climbing out of Cranham, there was a mutiny.  The ride leader was seen powering up the hill alone as everyone else on the ride took the zig-zag route up the common.  All was forgiven at the re-group, and we continued to Foston's Ash and Bisley as a united...

GCCC getting out more

Eleven riders were present at the ungodly hour of 08:00 to start the ride to Avebury.  The usual route via Foston's Ash and Daneway to Coates was familiar, but after that, we soon entered the less frequented, and flatter lanes of Wiltshire. Coffee was taken at Malmsbury Garden Centre, where one rider said "At least you aren't going up Clyffe Pypard", to which the ride leader responded "We are". ...
