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.
The club's Hillclimb championship is combined with the Open hillclimb being promoted by Stewart House. It's a two-part event with Flint Hill at 10am followed by Streatley at 11am. Helpers and spectators welcome, and thanks to the event sponsors:
The Bull at Streatley (fantastic pub, ideal location for cyclists to enjoy a coffee or lunch) are providing support to the club’s open hill climb. http://www.bullstreatley.com
AW Cycles – We are once again fortunate to have support from the No1 bike shop in the locality. http://www.awcycles.com
Start Sheet is now attached.
Reading Cycling Club are pleased to return to Prospect Park. Prospect Park in Reading is an ideal location for cyclo-cross racing and we would like to thank Reading Borough Council for their support and assistance in making the event possible.

A field of 44 competed in the Colin Roberts Memorial Time Trial was held on 30 August at Bentley.
