VC Newport is a rapidly expanding group of road cyclists, ranging in ability, but with a collective focus on improving performance without losing the social 'coffee and cake' atmosphere.
We provide opportunities to train group cycling skills and road craft, prepare for sportives and build fitness. Our members take part in everything from 20 mile charity rides to 250 (yes, 250) mile Audaxes, as well as plenty who are only in it for the cake stops on the weekend club runs!
All you need is a helmet and reasonable bike control skills to get started. Experienced cyclists are encouraged to get involved in helping to improve the rides and everyone is encouraged to get friends along to try it out.
Rides are posted on our Facebook group and on most weeks we will have at least one social ride and one more training oriented ride, during the warmer months it is not uncommon for VC Newport jerseys to be seen on the road for as many as five organised rides per week.
