Welcome to Velo Club Walcot Cycling Club in Bath,UK

for friendly group rides and racing in the glorious hills surrounding our city

Ride With VCW

VC-Walcot was started in November 2006 with the aim of providing a friendly and accessible cycling club for any rider in the Bath area who wanted to ride with a group of like-minded people. We enjoy starting our Sundays with a ride usually with a mid ride coffee, a chat and some hard-earned cake.

Although we now ride on Wednesdays , the Sunday group rides are the core of what we do and are always friendly and sociable and at a reasonable pace for your level of fitness and experience; if you start a ride with us you’ll finish it with us, too. We organise competitive events and separate rides for our racers so we can keep our group rides as much fun as they should be.

We’re always happy to meet new people to ride with so please come join us.

We are also British Cycling, CTT and WTTA affiliated, and have a core of members who are active road, time trial and cyclocross racers – if you fancy having a go, we’re more than happy to point you in the right direction.

Under normal circumstances we meet in front of Brown’s in Bath at 9am on both Sunday and Wednesday. There are groups for all abilities, starting at average 12mph.
