Welcome to the University Cycling Club, a friendly and inclusive community for cyclists of all levels! Our athletes ride a range of disciplines from track to cyclo-cross, road to gravel. Whether you’re an experienced rider or brand new to cycling, we’re excited to have you join us on this two-wheeled adventure.
Regular training sessions include twice a week road rides, catering to various speeds and distances, and indoor spin sessions. We also host women and non-binary rides, velodrome sessions, as well as two weekends away to face the hardest, most well-known, climbs in the UK at a discounted rate.
For those new to cycling, we offer educational sessions where you can learn essential bike maintenance skills and gain confidence in group riding. Our experienced riders will guide you through the process, helping you develop the necessary techniques to make your cycling experience safe and enjoyable.
For those interested in racing, we organize exciting events such as criterium races and velodrome sessions, allowing you to explore different disciplines and push your limits. Our athletes also have the opportunity to compete for the university in downhill, hill-climb, time trial, track, and road racing disciplines at BUCS.
We offer a two-week taster period so whether you’re a seasoned cyclist or just getting started, we encourage you to get in touch or come along to one of our rides. We can’t wait to meet you, share our passion for cycling, and make lasting memories together.
We hope to see you soon!
