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.
Thames Velo Road Race
Taking the start line at the 68km Thames Velo Spring RR (3/4/W/J) of 3
laps around the Gt. Milton cricuit were Simon Notley, Jun Aishima, Nick
Davies, Wayne Thomas, and Stephen Bale. From the start there were
attacks at the front that kept the pace high. Clare Hill saw the first
RCC casualty with Thomas not quite keeping up with the pace. The 2nd lap
was equally spirited with some hard pushes. Simon Notley was unfortunate
enough to puncture. Neutral service was able to get him a spare wheel
but he then had to chase to rejoin the main action of the race.
This evening saw another large field of 26 riders tackle the hilly Twyford circuit, the weather was not ideal with a cold gusty wind, overcast with drizzle but some good times were still posted.
Fastest rider was Nick English with 22:43, with fastest Reading rider Ken Buckley at 23:05 and Steve Bale at 24:07.
