Club Hillclimb Championships
Paul Taylor was the fastest club rider for the combined ascents of Britwell Hill and Dolesden Lane, in front of massed ranks of RCC spectators. Roy Booth caught the flavour of the event with his camera. Click here for the gallery.

Tour of Britain 2007
A recent highlight of cycling in Reading was the start of Stage 1 of the Tour of Britain. Reading CC were at the heart of the action, organising a race for folding bicycles after the Professionals had left the stadium.

Our General Secretary Roy Booth was interviewed during the morning by Maggie Philbin on BBC Radio Berks. On which subject, on the right we have Dean Bond, Roy himself and Colin Bates manning the RCC stall on the race morning.
