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. 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.


Membership changes for 2015 sticky icon

The membership fees have been changed for the first time in a number of years. There will be one membership for adults and one for under 18s. Members of other clubs will be able to join as second claim and they will pay the same membership and pay the same fees at the TT series. The only difference for second claim members will be that they will not be able to claim club awards.

The fee for all adult members will be £15 and for under 18s will be £10. These will be payable through British Cycling club manager, which we have introduced to help simplify the club's administration. There will be £1 handling charge added by British Cycling for payment on-line.

The membership year now extends up to 1st March and you have until this date to pay. All the people who have paid will have their membership continued up the end of February 2016. Club membership cards will be posted during the first half of March 2015. These can be used for discounts and to prove membership if required.

Mallorca 312km Sportive report from Pete Ganderton

Great, well supported event. I'm shattered. My official finishing time is 9h 29m, however I was so far back on the start ramp that it took me 8 minutes to get over the start line, so moving time 9h21.

Club TT result, 21 April 2015, Twyford

Another beautiful Spring evening saw 34 riders tackle the Twyford 10-mile circuit. Results are below.  Twyford is a bit lumpier than Waltham St Lawrence and that shows in slightly slower times in general, all apart from James Churchard.

Spring Clubruns proving very popular

30+ people at the Town Hall on Sunday, with a choice of fast, brisk and a couple of steady rides on offer. Thanks Dave Ridge, Fred Hale and Luca Romita for leading the brisk & steady rides. I had to turn back from Luca's ride at Kingsclere for a nice slog home into the wind. A bit chilly on the feet, but nice to be out. Hopefully it'll be a bit warmer next week...

Waltham St Lawrence 10-mile TT 14 April 2015, Result

This evening's sun and warmth brought out the crowds with a bigger turnout than any event at all last summer. Warren Davies and Dave Gaida had their hands full starting and timing 30 riders each of whom passed the finish line three times. Too many results to comment much on particular rides although Jim Watchorn was well out in front and takes an early lead in the Dave Finch competition and Dave Ridge was on a mission.

Excellent conditions for tonight’s event at Twyford, sunny and dry, very little wind, 16C. Warren Davies and Dave Gaida officiated, thanks guys, there’d be no race without you. 11 riders showed up and it was encouraging to find a couple of ‘come and try it’ riders present, I hope they enjoyed the experience (I think they did) and it would be excellent if they become regulars.
