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. The club welcomes 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.

TOUR OF FLANDERS CYCLOSPORTIVE
Reading Cycling Club’s David Ridge travelled to Belgium to
compete in the annual Tour of Flanders Cyclosportive. The Tour of Flanders is
one of the ‘monuments’ of cycling’s one-day spring classic season. From its
start in Bruges, the first half of the 260km race is flat, taking the riders
south to the hilly heartland of Flanders. Here the closing stages of the race are
played out over the short, steep cobbled climbs or that typify the area.
The first evening TT of the 2014 season was held on the Waltham circuit in almost perfect conditions, slightly cool but sunny with enough light for the last riders to complete the course safely.
