About our Club

Who are we?

We are a cycling club based south of Reading, formed in 2011.  Our focus is on enjoying a variety of riding.

We ride every Sunday morning, with longer rides and events monthly from Spring to Autumn. Our members include social riders and some more competitive spirits, from their Teens to their 60s, plus we have a thriving Juniors section.

If you are looking for a club to expand your cycling, a visiting cyclist or a triathlete (yes, we really are that friendly), you are welcome to join us on a ride to see what we are like.  

You'll find examples of recent and future activities via the button below.

We ride every Sunday, with other events most months

Our regular rides depart from Spencers Wood Library, Basingstoke Road, Spencers Wood, Reading RG7 1AJ every Sunday at 08:00am (08:30 in winter).  Rides are typically 40 to 70 miles in duration, with a coffee stop in the middle, and normally run in 3 groups at varying speeds: 

  • Transitions Group rides 40 - 50 miles at 14 - 15 mph
  • Social Group rides  50 - 70 miles at 15 - 17 mph
  • Fast Social Group rides the same 50 - 70 mile route at 17 - 20 mph 

Weekly ride details are published on our members Facebook page, with outline information on our open Facebook page (see the link below).

If you want to join us for a ride, just contact us via the link below or the facebook page and we will let you know what is happening that week.

Throughout the spring and summer we run further newcomer rides on the first Sunday of the month, 20 and 40 miles, with speeds to accommodate all, to introduce new members to club riding.  More details on the New Members page.
