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.

Steve Taylor RR postponed

Because of difficulty in arranging National Motorcycle Group support for the planned date of June 9th the Steve Taylor Memorial Road Race has been postponed to September 22nd.

In Emergency, call 999 or 112?

From a mobile phone, especially in areas where coverage is poor (hello Forest of Dean!) it is better to call the new emergency number 112 than the traditional 999 number. This video explains why, and gives you some tips on how to deal with weak or even apparently absent coverage. It's well worth six minutes of your time to watch.

Result of Speed Judging on Bulley Lane Circuit

Rob was the overall winner of this Gibbs Shield counting event, with an excellent cumulative time difference on both circuits of only 23 seconds, including a spot on time for the 10 mph lap.

Mark took third at 1 min 8 seconds with Colin, Lee, Roy and Les a little...

Sunshine greets us, at last we can get the short sleeve jerseys out, albeit with arm warmers.

Having posted a route over Cleeve Hill, the leader of the B ride threw the group off upon reaching its base at Southam by swerving left for Bishops Cleeve. The fine weather produced a good turn out and persuaded a lot of independent riders (of bikes, horses,and even a recumbent) onto the roads. It also drew a good crowd for an event at Prescott Hill Climb but all were navigated without incident....

Ledbury Club Ride

At the start of this morning's ride to Ledbury, the ride leader's sense of direction was questioned as we set off down the A48 to Westbury-on-Severn at a blistering pace.  The long climb from Flaxley to Dean Magna slowed the pace, and quietened any grumbling chatter.  After Mitcheldean, we were rewarded with stunning views over Wales as we went along the Linton Ridge.  Later, these were replaced...

Over the Bridge on a windy Sunday

Luckily, Storm Hannah was on predicted schedule, and came through on Saturday.  However, it left a cold, brisk North-Westerly, which had club members searching the back of the cupboard for the winter gear that had been put away.   Rather naively, I assumed that the strong headwind would keep the group together as we set off along the A40, and so didn't check as we turned off at Birdwood.  By the...
