All About Us

All About Us

Worcester St. John’s Cycling Club was founded in 1888 to promote and encourage all aspects of cycling in Worcester. That is still our aim and what we’re all about. No one aspect of cycling is promoted at the expense of any other, our members are active in cycle touring, club riding, sportives, cyclocross, track racing, time trials, road racing, mountain biking and long-distance events. We also have an active social side that encourages participation in club runs and club nights.

We cater for all levels of ability, from the novice to the experienced, and all ages. The Club provides a full calendar of recreational rides, big days out and racing through our affiliations to British Cycling, Cycling UK and Cycling Time Trials. During the summer we run weekly evening time trials on local courses over distances of 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 miles. See the Club Time Trial page for details.

Our most popular activities are the weekly club runs. Members meet on Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays for rides of varying speeds and distances. See the Training/Club runs page for details.

We look forward to you joining us.

What type of riding are you interested in?

Time Trialling

Each Tuesday from April to September there is a short-distance time trial (5 to 25 miles) on a variety of courses. The list of events is published each year and can be found on the club website. The current fee is £4 to enter (free for under 16’s). Minimum age is 12 years and anyone under 18 must have a consent form signed by a parent. Riders start at minute intervals and must not ride in the slipstream of another rider unless it is a ‘2-up’ event. Results are shown on the website within a few days of the event. 

Racing

Races take place throughout the year. Worcester St John’s and other clubs such as VC Sevale, Wyre Forest CRC, Beacon RC, and Bromsgrove Olympique run road races locally. You must join British Cycling and hold a racing licence to race. There’s a full winter season of cyclocross racing for all ages run by the West Midland Cyclo Cross League with many club riders regularly taking part from kids to seniors to Veterans. There’s also a growing mountain bike racing End few members are involved with mountain bike orienteering racing. Lots more info and our individual web pages.

Club Rides

Club rides are usually organised every week and are posted on the club Facebook group page.

Please check the Facebook event before you attend or contact the ride leader as things can change due to weather, road closure, other events etc.  When the club is organising a major event such as a road race, time-trial, hill-climb or cyclo-cross the club rides do NOT run as all club members are expected to assist with these major events.
