Clevedon and District Road Club (CDRC) was originally with the CTC but went ‘solo’ in 1952. The club still has some founding members actively cycling with the club on a regular basis.
We have Sunday runs starting from Clevedon Triangle all year. These will be around 25-40 miles to a coffee stop, with the choice of returning to Clevedon or continuing to a pub for lunch.
The cycling club has around 100 or so members principally from Clevedon, Portishead, Nailsea and Backwell. Sunday club runs take place every week of the year at a variety of paces. These are non competitive rides though the ‘fast group’ is quick. Some club riders make use of the velodrome in Newport and others enjoy off road racing.
Between May and September the club organises 10 mile Time Trials on Tuesday evenings that are well attended and attract a strong field – the quickest ride in 2016 was achieved by Marcin Białobłocki Poland’s national TT champion.
Please turn up in time to sign on etc.The CDRC Club ’10′ Championship will be run on the 9th June.The course is registered with CTT and run under their rules – Numbers are limited to 30 riders. All riders must have signed on by the start time.
It costs just £3.00 for riders who are a member of a CDRC and £4.00 for non members.
The club has a lively calendar with annual and ad hoc events including the Captain’s Challenge series of rides, regular social gatherings at the cycling friendly White Hart in Weston in Gordano, the ‘Parfry Up’ (the clubs annual pre-Christmas breakfast), annual awards evening and curry nights for those not watching their weight. It’s fair to say that the joint intelligence shared between club members of the merits and demerits of cafes within a 40 mile radius of Clevedon is staggering.
The club is sponsored by two local businesses: MEKK Cycles and Walnut Grove Clinic both of which offer generous support and discounts see Club Links. The club is also affiliated to British Cycling, Cycling UK, Cycling Time Trials, and the Western Time Trials Association.
The club’s joining subscription is just £12 a year. Please note that all members must in addition be individual members of British Cycling or Cycling UK, principally for insurance purposes.
We are affiliated to the CTC, British Cycling and CTT.
