We're one of the largest clubs in the area with over 150 members and cater for the aspiring, serious or sporting cyclist. A programme of club rides is at the heart of what we do, we especially cater for those who already have a good cycling base and are wanting to start cycling in a club to develop or just ride with likeminded cyclists. Whether these rides are a new experience, social, fitness building or training depends on who you are, your aspirations and outlook.
The Club has a highly successful trial series (joint with Corinium CC) and many club members and local clubs take part. Some of our Club members also race and you’ll find Club members with a range of non-road interests from cyclo-cross, mountain biking and track. So, if you’re looking for something to supplement road cycling then you’ll have some company from the club.
Our website has details of all our rides and upcoming events, however, there are some important things to know if you'd like to come out with us, these are:
- Know the Highway Code and follow it at all times
- Our Club code of conduct sets out clear expectations for rides and should be read before riding
- Under 16s are welcome but must be accompanied by a responsible adult
- You should satisfy yourself that a club ride is within your capability
- Whilst there will always be debates regarding helmets, on our club rides they are mandatory
- New riders as guests i.e., non-members, are welcome for up to 2 rides
- Mud-guards and flaps (see photos below) are required on all winter rides (1st Nov-1st March)
Through our members’ only Facebook page (we also have a public page) you have the opportunity to seek out or organise something informal with fellow members to suit your particular needs, from an ad-hoc ride to a training session with specific goals.
We are affiliated to the major bodies, both nationally and locally, supporting organisations that campaign for and promote events for cyclists, including British Cycling, CTC – The National Cycling Charity and Cycling Time Trials.
We will promote our own events each year, which rely on dedicated organisers within the Club who in turn need the support of our own members to enable these to happen.
New Ride format for 2018

Mandatory use of mudguards & flap on all SRC Club Rides November to March
Mudguards and an appropriate flap are mandatory on all Club rides from the 1st of November to the 1st March inclusive.
Mudguards should cover the entirety of the back wheel and include a mud flap (see photos). Any committee member will be happy to advise club members who are uncertain on the best mudguards.
