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 TT at Aldermaston went ahead as planned. Roadworks were all gone, the course was in remarkably good condition and the weather was glorious. A shame therefore that the result contains only three Reading CC riders – where was everyone?
Although slightly further away from Reading, the Eweshot course with its fast downhill start is always a good bet for a season’s personal best. Surprisingly only four riders signed on to ride, with RCCs Greg Woodford setting a very quick 20:46 followed by James Churchyard of GS Henley with 21:22 and RCC’s Paddy Ashcroft at 24:34.
The Old-School Time-Trial is always a popular event with riders competing on standard machines with no deep-section rims, TT-bars or aero helmets. The fourteen riders who signed on had great conditions with only a light North-Easterly breeze to contend with.
The 25 mile TT club champs did not run after much deliberation about the road conditions, with recent resurfacing leaving loose gravel. The riders that turned up rode 11.2 miles in a two lap circuit between the Theale roundabout and Aldermaston Roundabouts.

Reading's time of 22min 21sec over the three laps was just over a minute behind the eventual winners, Richardson Trek RT who completed the course in 20:58.
