Club Event Calendar 2016

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.

 

Autumn Reliability Trial 2015

A total of 29 riders participated in the RCC Autumn Reliability Ride spread across 4 groups. The effective 1 hour later start due to the clocks changing did not prevent a very cold start, especially for the first rider to turn up at 8.45 for what should have been a 10.00 start, but as the sun broke through the morning quickly warmed up, leaving many well overdressed. 25 riders opted for the 110km route, which took them south from Dinton through Mattingley, Old Basing, Alton and Worldham, before heading back through Kingsley, Bentley, Phoenix Green and Eversley.

Congratulations to Fred Hale

Congratulations to Fred Hale

Reading Cycling Club's Fred Hale successfully completed one his life’s ambitions by riding the famed LEJOG (Land's End to John O' Groats) last week. Fred completed it in ten days, and reported "It was tough and the weather unkind. The route took in predominantly minor roads, and a few cycle routes though the Edinburgh, Liverpool, and Manchester conurbations which took a bit of navigating. The route then went over Glenshee and The Lecht in subzero temperatures and a howling Northerly wind.
