Welcome !
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.

Sportive and Audax for week ending 28th June 2015

The HotChillee LONDON-PARIS is known as the "professional event for amateurs". It is a tough, 3 stage endurance road event with full support and rolling road closures.

Everyone getting to Aldermaston from Reading this evening noticed the traffic accident with police in attendance at the Spring Inn. The consequence for us was that I decided to shorten the event to 10 miles. Little dissent on that on such a sweltering evening, 29C at the start. Was it a fast evening? Greg and Jim clearly thought so and PBs were scattered through the field, for example Rob Thompson and Dan Harryman squeaking under 25 minutes. For myself a very fast outward leg was followed by a draggy hot return on which I could feel myself fading as Greg powered smoothly past. We have one more visit to the H25/1 which is on the 14th July and that event is now nominated as the club 25 championship. On the way home this evening the police were still beside the damaged vehicle.

Clubrun reports, June 28 2015

Most of us were caught out by the weather on Sunday not quite matching the forecast. Luca, being in the weather industry had the sense to check on the morning and so turned up on his winter bike. Dave Ridge also came suitably equipped. The rest of us, not so much.

Club TT result, 23 June 2015. "Old School" championship at Maidenhead Thicket

My thanks to Pete Ganderton, Graham Patterson, Dave Gaida and Greg Woodford for running last evening’s event. Your Old School champion for 2015 is Hadyn Rhys Jones with a mighty impressive 22:26.

Sportive and Audax week ending 14th June 2015. Tour of Cambridgeshire and Velothon Wales

TOUR OF CAMBRIDGESHIRE SPORTIVE
‪Ray Hayhurst‬ I managed 3.45 in the Tour of Cambridge which I'm very happy with. Got a medal as well!!! Not quite up to yesterday's results though.

‪Robert John Thompson‬ I wasn't in this list (probably as I signed up as Reading Uni club), but I did 3:55 at the tour of Cambridgeshire, and also got a medal. Trip to Denmark is in order.

VELOTHON WALES:
We had 14 riders - here are some of their reports

Finally the weather gods delivered a lovely evening. Rob Thompson summed up the time trial experience perfectly, “it was really hard all the way but I enjoyed it.” Callum Hughes showed good form to take a win with Paul Gray Reading’s best finisher, was that a PB for Paul I wonder. Stewart House underlined his old school credentials by riding a drop-barred fixie, and the Bennet tandem continues to improve.
