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. We welcome 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.

New Forest 100 sportive

New Forest 100 sportive

Lisbeth Morrison rode this sportive, her first sportive at this distance:
"The ride was incredible! Absolutely stunning scenery and a fantastic atmosphere. We were very lucky with the weather, and had some gorgeous sunshine to begin with. The ride had some good hills and was a perfect one to do for my first 100, and I was really pleased with my time of 6hrs21mins. Cindy Goslar did the 100 on the Sunday but I didn't see anyone else from RCC on Saturday"

A glimpse of the Timmelsjoch pass from the Oetzaler Radmarathon which I rode on Sunday the 27th. Its a tough event - 238km and 5500 metres of climbing over four passes. It starts in Solden, Austria and winds through beautiful valleys down to Oetz before a tough early morning climb up to Kuhtai followed by a fast decent into Innsbruck.

Marlow red kite 80 mile ride. Somewhat damp day but still great fun.
It was good but we weren't very quick. Came in the Silver standard. Maybe might have made it
if we took shorter breaks at the feed zone as moving time was 5:09. Think we'll want to do the 100 mile next year. It was very well organised.

Mathew Brown and myself set off from Caversham at 3.15 in the morning. We should have had plenty of time but we somehow ended up in a bit of a panic to get to the start area in the allotted time. We found Ian Armstrong and Nick Lees and managed to get a team picture.
