What We Do
At University of Bath Cycling Club we cater for all types of rider, whether you are a beginner or compete in national and international events.
We lead Road, Cross Country and Downhill rides every Wednesday throughout term-time, with rides split into several ability based groups, and on the weekends. For the 2018-19 academic year there will be additional opportunities for female members, including women's only spin classes and more led rides.
At Uni of Bath CC there is no pressure for anyone to make the team, we just like to see like minded people riding bikes and having a good time. Any member of the club can buy our awesome kit. As well as being incredibly inclusive we look to give maximum opportunity and support for those who are driven to compete through our performance squads.
We currently have student performance squads for both Road and Cyclocross that compete at local and national events. However, we subsidise race entries for the most enthusiastic riders through the club; whether that be someone competing for race wins or simply someone looking to get over the hurdle of entering their first race.
Throughout the 2018-19 academic year, we have some BIG events planned – watch this space. These include free or heavily subsidised trips to various MTB/track cycling locations and riding holidays (for both road and MTB riders) abroad over the inter-semester break and in the summer.
