Bristol Road Club

Established in 1927, Bristol Road Club has been the premiere road cycling club in Bristol for over 95 years.

With a broad membership of over 200 cyclists we welcome cycling enthusiasts from all backgrounds who are interested in taking part in road cycling, as well as watching and supporting road racing in the Bristol area.

As a club we offer weekly social and training rides, and have members competing in road racing, criterium racing, time trialling and cyclocross races across the region.

The club also organises an annual training camp abroad so we can enjoy cycling in sunnier climes during the off-season.
