We're the largest club in the area with over 200 members and for the aspiring, serious or sporting cyclist. A programme of club rides is at the heart of what we do, which cater for those wanting to start cycling in a club, develop or just ride. Whether these rides are a new experience, social, fitness building or training depends on who you are, your aspirations and outlook. Some members compete in road and circuit races.
Club members also compete in time trials including our Club events (with Corinium CC) and open events. Cyclo cross and mountain biking are also represented amongst our members.
Our website gives you an idea of what we get up to. Important things to know if you'd like to come out with us are:
- Under 16s are welcome but must be accompanied by a responsible adult;
- You should satisfy yourself that a club ride is within your capability;
- Whilst there will always be debates regarding helmets, on our club rides they are mandatory;
- New riders as guests i.e., non-members, are welcome for up to 2 rides.
Through our members' online forum you have the opportunity to seek out or organise something informal with fellow members to suit your particular needs, from an ad-hoc ride to a training session with specific goals.
We are affiliated to the major bodies, both nationally and locally, supporting organisations that campaign for and promote events for cyclists, including British Cycling, CTC – The National Cycling Charity and Cycling Time Trials.
We aim to promote our own events each year, which rely on dedicated organisers within the club who in turn need the support of our own members to enable these to happen.

Mandatory use of Mudguards & Flap on all SRC Club Rides November to March
Mudguards and an appropriate flap will be mandatory on all Club rides from the 1st of January 2017 until the 1st of March 2017 inclusive.
Mudguards should cover the entirety of the back wheel and include a mud flap. Any committee member will be happy to advise club members who are uncertain on the best mudguards.
Please note, you will be kindly asked to ride at the back of the group if you turn up to a ride between now and the 1st of March without a mudguard. After this point, the rule will be mandatory for all SRC winter rides from the 1st of November to the 1st March.
