Stroud Valleys CC welcomes new faces on all our Club rides.

 CTC Stroud Valleys Cycling Club

We offer a program that aims to appeal to a range of abilities, from novices through to experienced cyclists. We grade our rides as easy, medium, or hard (e / m / h) and our motto is "No one is ever knowingly left behind!"

Our rides list includes:

  • An easy ride on the first Saturday of each month designed for new, returning and/or inexperienced riders; about 20 miles on relatively easy terrain

  • A mixed-grade ride every Sunday                               

  • A 'buzz' ride, shorter harder and faster, on one Sunday each month

  • A mixed-grade ride every Tuesday, starting at 1:30pm

  • A medium-grade ride every Thursday

  • All rides aim to stop at least once for refreshments.

Cycling in The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds Tourism Partnership, based in Stroud,  has produced a very useful set of suggested cycling routes covering the area between the Severn and the central Cotswolds. These, together with very useful accompanying material, can be downloaded from now, or can be bought from all Gloucestershire Tourism Information centres.
