Cotswold Clarion Cycling Club

'Fellowship is Life'

We are based in the Cotswolds, cycling mainly in the South of the Cotswolds and we are a section of the National Clarion Cycling Club.

We were formed in March 2018 and our membership is largely made up of cyclists living either side of the North Wiltshire and South Gloucestershire border.  We're ideally placed to enjoy some great cycling, whether it be the flat roads around the Cotswold Water Park; the undulating Cotswolds themselves; or the steep ascents around the Stroud Valleys.  Whilst weekly weekend and midweek club rides (no drop) are very much a core activity, cycling in Audax events also features strongly. 

Rides generally start in either the Tetbury or Malmesbury areas and are very sociable affairs, usually with a quality cafe stop!  A typical summer ride will between 40-60 miles, with a moving av. speed of around 13-15 mph.  Rides are posted each week on our club Strava page and on our club WhatsApp, where riders are encouraged to sign up in advance.

We are an inclusive organisation and prospective new members are entitled to ride as guests for three rides before deciding if they wish to apply to join.

The club has a wealth of experience and always makes sure that our new riders are given a warm welcome and looked after.  We pride ourselves in riding in a disciplined and safe manner and respect our fellow road users. For example we acknowledge cars that wait and pass us safely; we single file when safe and appropriate to do so. We also slow down for horses and chat to them as we pass, so that we don’t startle them.
