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,. Our juniors ride with the Sprockets Cycle Club.
If you are looking for a club to expand your cycling, a visiting cyclist or a triathlete, 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.

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:
Weekly ride details are published on our members Facebook page, with outline information on our open Facebook page (see the link at the bottom of this page).
