Stroud Valleys CC


Stroud Valleys CC welcomes new faces on all our Club rides.

We offer a program that aims to appeal to a range of abilities, from novices through to experienced cyclists. We grade our rides as easy, medium, or hard (e / m / h) and our motto is “No one is ever knowingly left behind!”

Our rides list includes:

  • An easy ride on the first Saturday of each month designed for new, returning and/or inexperienced riders; about 20 miles on relatively easy terrain
  • A mixed-grade ride every Sunday                               
  • A ‘buzz’ ride, shorter harder and faster, on one Sunday each month
  • A mixed-grade ride every Tuesday, starting at 1:30pm
  • A medium-grade ride every Thursday
  • All rides aim to stop at least once for refreshments.

Tortworth Record Ride

On 29th July 23 Club members cycled to Tortworth where this memorable photo was taken. We think that 23 is a record number for one of our Club rides.

Cycling in The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds Tourism Partnership, based in Stroud,  has just produced a very useful set of suggested cycling routes covering the area between the Severn and the central Cotswolds. These, together with very useful accompanying material, can be downloaded from http://cotswolds.com/the-great-cotswold-outdoors now, or can be bought from all Gloucestershire Tourism Information centres from the end of July.

New riders are welcome on all rides. If you want to discuss whether a particular ride is right for you, or to confirm details of routes, please call the Ride Leader (telephone numbers are published on the Rides List itself.) If you’re not sure which rides are relevant to your requirements, or would like to have a general chat about the Club, please contact the Club Secretary on 01453 270772 or email Secretary@StroudValleys.cc , or the Runs Captain by email RunsCaptain@StroudValleys.cc

Rides start no more than 5 minutes after the published start time. Everyone is responsible for their own safe when riding. Bikes must be roadworthy; and must have working front and rear lights for winter or evening rides. Bring a spare inner tube, repair tools, some food (e.g. bananas, biscuits), a drink, money and emergency contact details in case of accident (a card/note with your name, address and emergency contact name and phone no.) If you are lucky enough to be under 18, please carry a parental agreement letter/form, even if your parent accompanies you on the ride.

If you are already a member of CTC, you are automatically entitled to ride with us. Everyone else can ‘try us out’ for two rides before joining (at www.CTC.org.uk). Membership of the CTC comes with a whole raft of benefits, including £10m third party insurance, cycling-related support and advice, and a great members’ magazine.
