Welcome !
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.

RCC Audax Bulletin 18, 21st May 2018

RCC Audax Bulletin 18, 21st May 2018

The audax season is now well under way, with greater participation from RCC riders than previous years. I've not written a bulletin in some time, having been preoccupied with retirement plans and trying to fit everything into a paradoxically busier life, so I'll give a short summary.

The Kennet Valley Run 200 (KVR) in early March saw the largest ever single entry for RCC, with several riders new to audax joining the long distsance stalwarts. I hope this encourages others to support the local audax events (see below).

Club Event Calendar 2018

Here are the details of the club's major events for the year. Clubruns aren't shown, but happen every Sunday from the Old Town Hall, usually at 9am.

Anthony Maynard Reliability Trial Report Sunday 25th Feb 2018

Anthony Maynard Reliability Trial Report Sunday 25th Feb 2018

A magnificent turnout in the chilly sunshine on Sunday 25th, at the final count, there were 82 riders! Even including Dave's contingent from Minehead I think this is still up on previous years. 
Thanks to helpers, Doug Aspinall, Peter Stocker and Kevin Buckley who kept things running smoothly on the day, and brought additional materials for the start setup.
Doug has totted up the donations and after subtracting costs on the day, the two charities Thames Valley Air Ambulance and World Society for Protection of Animals will each receive half of £209.70. Thanks everyone.

These are LOCAL events, organised by our very own Mick Simmons, departing from and returning to Grazeley Village Hall. The 100 goes to Hungerford and back, the 200 adds an out-and-back section down the pan-flat Kennet Valley. Both provide an excellent opportunity to check your fitness coming out of Winter.

Anthony Maynard Reliability Trial - 25th February 2018

The last Sunday in February, 25th, is this year's annual Anthony Maynard Spring Reliability Trial. It’s the usual two routes with target times for the different ‘speed’ groups. Please note this event is not a race, you should ride with normal consideration for your fellow riders and other road users, adhering to the rules of the road.
