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 local time-trial season began at the weekend with several events.
Surrey Rumble Sportive and Reading CC Reliability Trial.

Reading CC's annual Reliability Trial took place on Sunday 27th February. The choice of 57km (President's Trial) and 87km circular routes through the Chilterns has proved a popular early season test of pacing for local riders. With 60 riders signed up, it was good to see other clubs represented; in particular a strong contingent from G.S.
I was down to lead ‘brisk’ to Four Marks on the A31 west of Alton. I thought this was an ambitious destination and warned my wife I’d be home after 1pm. And I was right because we eventually pitched up at the 4th choice coffee stop.
