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.
Please find below links to the Bill Higson results for 2014. It was a fantastic day's racing under unseasonably warm and sunny skies. Thanks to all the organisers, helpers and competitors for another memorable event.

Cotswold Edge Sportive

The longest course is less than 100 miles and encompasses enough hilly terrain and rolling or flat sections to provide a variety of challenges to fit the shorter daylight span.
