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.
This fund was instigated by long term Reading CC member Bill Blake in 2013. As Bill felt that he was no longer physically able to help at club events he generously donated one of his bikes to the club, the bike was sold and realised £660.
The proceeds of the sale were put to start the fund which is to be used to assist young Reading CC members to further their race ambitions.
