Worcester St Johns Cycling Club

UPDATE 11th November 2020 – Coronavirus

In accordance with the latest government restrictions and following the advice of Cycling UK, British Cycling, and other cycling representative bodies, club activity is once again restricted. Riding with one other person for exercise is currently permitted. However rules are regularly changing and are different in Wales, so regularly checking the advice of CUK etc is recommended.

Hopefully this second lockdown will be briefer than the first and as soon as the situation alters the club will be in a position to reconsider which activities it can resume.

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).
