Worcester St Johns Cycling Club

UPDATE 17 MARCH 2020 – Coronavirus

The Government has recommended avoiding non essential social contact. Pretty much all non essential contact is being cancelled bit by bit to slow down the spread of Covid 19 Coronavirus.

As Chairman, I can now report that enough Members of the WSJCC Committee have now reached the majority view to suspend organised club activities (club rides, club social, club committee, club events etc.) from this point until further notice.

These are difficult times and WSJCC supports the similar approaches from British Cycling and also Cycling UK.

Worcester St Johns Cycling Club was founded in 1888 by cyclists keen to go cycling together and to protect and encourage all aspects of cycling in Worcester. Through the years the club focused on racing and the sporting side of cycling but has always included social and leisure cycling activities. Today the club is involved in every possible aspect of cycling from racing to campaigning for better cycling facilities.

Racing members are active in Cyclocross, Track Racing, Time Trials, Road Racing, Mountain Biking and Ultra Distance Events. Both racing and non-racing members take part in training rides, sportives, club rides, club nights, touring  and other social events. We aim to cater for all levels of ability, from complete novices to experienced cyclists, of any age.

The club provides a full calendar of racing events on the road through our affiliations to the Cycling Time Trials (CTT) and British Cycling as well as LVRC races. During the summer we organise weekly evening time trials on local courses over distances varying between 1 kilometre and 25 miles. At the weekends, members participate in club rides, sportives, road races and open time trials.

Club racing activity is frequently reported in the local press, especially when Worcester St Johns riders are in action on local courses and in open events.

Our most popular activities, are weekly club rides. Members meet on Saturdays, Sundays and Wednesdays for rides of varying speeds and distances (see the club runs page for more details).
