RCC Women

Women Riders in RCC
RCC has a number of women members who participate in a variety of cycling disciplines. We have members who regularly ride the Sunday clubruns, ride Audaxes, and compete in road races, time trials and sportives.

We now have women’s cut RCC clothing which currently consists of short-sleeved jerseys and padded shorts made by Provision in the club colours. For more information on this please visit the Clothing page.

Contact Trudi Sammons for more information about women's cycling in Reading CC.
