Welcome to Rochester Cycling Club formed 1st May 2013

RCC has grown from a small group of cyclists going out for a few rides to a fully fledged cycling club with it own web presence and a growing membership.
Starting initially as a club for BAE Systems Rochester employees, we now find ourselves in a position to accept members from all over the Medway Towns.
We've designed our logos and manufactured a lovely looking kit, held our own club competitions, and even had riders represent the club in real life races.

This site will show you what RCC are up to and what we've been doing since our inception.

Weekly Club Rides - Thursday & Friday

Each week we get together for a couple of weekly club rides.
  • Thursday: From 5pm, we ride for an hour around our favourite loop through Wouldham, Burham and Aylesford.
  • Friday: Leaving BAE Systems at 1:30pm, we head out for an afternoon's sociable riding; usually incorporating a stop at a coffee shop, or one of our favourite pubs

Hill Climb Competitions

Twice a year we hold our Hill Climb Competitions at the nearby closed road Stoney Lane.
These afternoon events are extremely popular amongst our members, and are very highly contested...
in the past 5 events we've held over the years, we've had 5 different winners.

10mile Time Trial Series

During the Summer, we host a pair of 10 mile Time Trial races at the nearby Iwade course in Sittingbourne.
These are friendly contests against the clock, and against your own personal best.

Sportive/Audax/Charity Rides
Our riders can always be found representing the club in organised rides in the region.
London to Brighton, Cycle For Heroes, and Ride London 100 are just a few of the rides we've attended.
Every year, our members tackle the Wiggle Dragon Ride, the UK toughest sportive
and the 24 hour Lake Vattern in Sweden.

Club Trophies & Club Dinner
At the end of the year, we celebrate with a club get together to present the club's tophies and honours.
We award a Time Trial Champion, the Hill Climb Champion,
and crown the overall RCC Club Champion - awarded to the best all round rider.

We also honour the rider who has contributed the most to the club, and been a generally nice person,
with the prestigous RCC "Scrape-It" Member of the Year award

Skills Coaching Sessions
Conducted by the club's resident qualified British Cycling Level 2 Coach,
we get together here on site to learn how to cycle better, faster, stronger.
These are quality structured coaching session, where we look to improve all aspects of our cycling.

Winter Indoor Training Sessions
Over the winter, when the evenings go darker and the weather gets wetter;
we migrate indoors to hold fortnightly turbo training sessions.

Devised by the South East's leading British Cycling coach,
these sessions are ideal for maintaining fitness over the cold hard winter months.

Velodrome Track Visits
Each year we organise a trip to a velodrome to turn our hand some track riding.
Last year we rode on the London Olympic 2012 LeeValley VeloPark,
this year we'll visit the London 1948 Olympic velodrome at Herne Hill in South London.
