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. We welcome 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.

Reading CC had 12 riders in the club team organised by Nigel Elliott who commented “a furious speed leaving Cardiff, some fantastic times from RCC”
After a brief intermission, we're back!
It was a sunny evening but a chilly NE breeze made the return leg hard work in places. Dan Raptor Bigham's ride stands apart but there were many good rides through the field. Nice to see former member and now elite road-racer Joe Harris turning out for a swift ride on his road bike.
Several sportives took place on he weekend of 15th May 2016.
Here are the reports from our riders at these events:
Chiltern 100 sportives
Paul Gray rode the Gran Fondo
“On Sunday I did the Chiltern Hundred Sportive, having done this a few times now I know what to expect with it’s challenging route of going up or down nearly all the peaks of the Chilterns, which strangely seems to suit me well.
Year on year this event has consistently attracted riders from the club
Hampshire Hilly 100
Ranjit Bahra reports:
A mild evening after a wet day drew 13 starters to the Nettlebed 18.23 mile course that features the climb of Pishill. Brian Perry was the kind person who made it all possible by holding the watch. This evening we got wet indeed, annoyingly the rain only started after we all did so we were all committed. Dan Bigham showed up, some kid on a road bike as far as I was concerned and despite his evident confidence I didn’t fancy his chances of defeating Ken Buckley’s 42:40. Which only shows how little I know for Dan has destroyed the course record with a 41 dead.
