Reading CC has been promoting cycling in Berkshire since 1974. With over 200 members, the club is dedicated to giving cyclists the opportunity to race, ride and enjoy life on two wheels. We have something on offer for all sporting riders, with a series of evening time trials throughout the racing season, several social rides every week along with road racing, sportives, audax and cyclo-cross. We welcome new members to participate in all these activities. Please browse the site to learn more about us, and don't hesitate to contact a member of the committee for further information.

The evening may have been cool, dull and a little breezy for the first event of the season but 16 riders turned out to race the WSL circuit on Tuesday 4th April.
Saturday 11th March the Ups and Downs was out of Cranleigh
Paul East reports “80 miles with two long climbs near the end. Lovely day and in short sleeves for most of this one. Finished in 4hrs 24 21 for gold standard. Not sure of official placing (as it's not a race!) :-) but 17th on Strava.”
Recorded as 95th/496. Paul and myself looked at the fast Epic riders' times and tried to locate them on Strava - some hadn't ridden the course, so I believe Paul deserves a much higher position.Brian
A cool but dry morning with a significant south westerly, which hardly mattered to the 59 riders who gathered at Thames Valley Park. There’s always quite a buzz after sign-on the ‘speed’ groups assemble before moving over to the starting lane. This year some flapjacks and coffee supplied too, thanks to Doug Aspinall and Luca Romita.
