Worcester St Johns Cycling Club

Coronavirus update 7th January 2021

In accordance with the latest government restrictions and following the advice of Cycling UK, British Cycling, and other cycling representative bodies, club activity continues to be restricted. Riding locally, for exercise, with your household or one other person from another household is currently permitted. All other Club activity is suspended – save the growing club Zwift scene! (check our facebook page).

We expect this situation to last at least till mid February. However rules regularly change and may vary between tiers if we return to this system. Please check and following the advice of BC and CUK etc.

The Membership year starts in January and you can renew or join as a new Member as usual on our website. Hopefully we will be able to run our Time Trial season from April again – we’ll see.


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).
