Reading University Road Cycling Club
Welcome to Reading University Cycling club, the fastest moving sports team on Campus.
Inspired by Team GB's success on the track and on the road? Then why not come and have a go, all you need is a bike and a helmet!
We truly cater for all abilities, whether you believe you are the next Chris Hoy or just want to stretch your legs in the Berkshire countryside. Fortunately, we are one of the few university cycling teams able to say we have a velodrome on our doorstep located in Palmer Park. We meet on a weekly basis 4 times a week with two velodrome sessions (Tuesdays and Thursdays from September to March) and road rides on a Wednesday and at the weekend all throughout the year because as John F Kennedy said “Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride”
By being able to meet so often we can offer a variety of rides. The rides on a Wednesday are a great way to unwind as they are on a Wednesday afternoon once lectures have finished and are between 20-30 miles at a sociable pace so are suitable for all abilities. Saturday and Sunday rides are normally longer, however, can be adapted to cater for all abilities like the Wednesday rides.
Subscription fees are £15.15 for all members and will be used for things such as booking the velodrome to host our own races amongst many other wonderful things!
However, we don't just meet on bikes, with a variety of socials taking place throughout the year!
There is also the option of buying various forms of Reading University Road Cycling branded kit and hope to put an order in early into the Autumn term for those who are interested.
Please come and see us at the Welcome Week Sports Fair, where the committee members will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
