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.

Twyford HCC132 10-mile time trial Tuesday 25 April, result

At 17.30 it was hailing hard in Reading but over on the Twyford course the roads were dry. With the discouraging weather just six people signed up to ride. A thin and fit Paul Gray bagged 20 DF points but props to all who rode on a very cold evening. The hail was starting again as the last rider handed in his number. On the way home my Garmin got down to 0.5C.
Thanks go to helpers: Ray and Wendy for excellent signage, Graham and Paddy for TK duties.

Twyford HCC132 10-mile TT 11th April: result

Nice weather for racing on 11th April being dry, bright and mild.

HCC234 Waltham St Lawrence 10-mile TT 18/4/17 - result

A sunny but chilly evening brought out 11 riders. The NE breeze was unhelpful but Hadyn was still able to record a rarely-seen 22 on this circuit course. A few of us got slightly held up by traffic caught behind leisure riders but that's just the nature of this course.

Waltham St Lawrence 10 mile TT, Tuesday 4/4/17

The evening may have been cool, dull and a little breezy for the first event of the season but 16 riders turned out to race the WSL circuit on Tuesday 4th April.

Sportive Report Feb/March 2017

Saturday 11th March the Ups and Downs was out of Cranleigh
Paul East reports “80 miles with two long climbs near the end. Lovely day and in short sleeves for most of this one. Finished in 4hrs 24 21 for gold standard. Not sure of official placing (as it's not a race!) :-) but 17th on Strava.”

Recorded as 95th/496. Paul and myself looked at the fast Epic riders' times and tried to locate them on Strava - some hadn't ridden the course, so I believe Paul deserves a much higher position.Brian


the first batch of the Fast Group depart

A cool but dry morning with a significant south westerly, which hardly mattered to the 59 riders who gathered at Thames Valley Park. There’s always quite a buzz after sign-on the ‘speed’ groups assemble before moving over to the starting lane. This year some flapjacks and coffee supplied too, thanks to Doug Aspinall and Luca Romita.
