Sportives

Sportives are defined as "a long-distance road cycling event in which a large number of cyclists ride a marked route. With distances from 30 to over 100 miles and often fully supported there is an option for everyone to enjoy"

Time Trials

Time trialling is the simplest of competitive formats: a race against the clock. With riders starting a minute apart, it's known as the 'race of truth' because there's nowhere to hide, no one to draft behind; just you, the bike and the thumping of your heart. Oh, and a clock ticking...

Sunday Club Rides - 4th December

9am from the Pink Pub. The standard BRCC Sunday format and route to Stansted with a stop at Tangmere to meet anyone joining us there.

Club ride format will be observed, so no-one left behind, mechanical assistance given if required and a Relaxed/Steady Sunday morning pace.

All welcome, with a reasonable forecast for the weather, so why not join us?

Although assistance will be given with any mechanical issues, please bring a basic repair kit with you including a spare tube, pump and tyre levers. If you're not sure, have a chat with any of the regular members while you're out with us to see what they would recommend you include.

Sunday club training ride, leaving the Pink Pub at 8:00.

50+ miles at a reasonable tempo pace with a few hills for good measure. Coffee stop at Stanstead if we have time, aiming to be back to the PP by 1pm latest. We are considering pushing the start time to 9am soon to avoid early frost. Details of any changes will be posted on Facebook and in these email notifications

 

Established in 1936

The club has a long and rich history in the local area. We cater for all standards of cycling, from beginner to veteran.

Whether you just want to get more from your cycling in a safe and friendly environment. Explore some of the wonderful local countryside with other likeminded people who will look out for each other and encourage you to do more whilst keeping a realistic pace and achievable goals.

Perhaps you want to develop more advanced cycling activities such as longer sportives riding or to enter the competitive Time Trial and Road Racing scene.

Whatever your ability is now and whatever your aim is for the future, if it's cycling related, then BRCC will always offer a warm welcome and try to help you to achieve what you want in a friendly and supportive way. Of course, cake and coffee during that journey is optional!

See our 'Club Rides' page for more details on our weekly organised rides.

We have negotiated discounts with suppliers on a wide range of products and services related to cycling. From local bike shops for those regular purchases to national insurance companies and a host of things in between.

We have a club members card, this will offer ID and ICE contacts while you are out riding.

Access to the members only section of this web site, with details on how to benefit from the discounted rates and news for club members.

Monday Night is Conditioning Night!

We have started a winter conditioning session at Barnham Village Hall, to be run for October/November (maybe longer).

The session will start at 8.30 and run for an hour with the emphasis on off-bike training. There will be a 10 minute warm up, 40 mins intensive activities (planks, crunches, jumps etc) followed by 10 mins of warm down.

The idea is that after a Sunday Training ride this is a recovery/cross training session which augments the Turbo Sessions on Thursday evenings.The session is free for BRCC members or £2.50 for non members. The only equipment you will need is non-marking trainers!

turbo night

Thursday Night is Turbo Night!

Thursday Evening Turbo Torture Returns!! Yes, its that time of the year again when the nights draw in, the shorts turn to tights and Christmas starts to loom.

Now you can safely let the hairs grow back on your legs, stop apologising for how dirty your bike is because it will now always be dirty and that nagging summer cold that prevented a PB will quite legitimately become winter flu.

So, put all your ailments aside, dust off the turbo, roll out the sweat mat and trip on down to Eastergate Hall.

The usual format - gates open at 6.30, all in and ready to start by 7.00, wind down and finish by 8.00.

This hour of fun is offered free to any member of BRCC and charged at only £2.50 for non-members
