Welcome To The University Of Bristol Cycling Club

The UOBCC is a thriving student community that offers members anything from a gentle club ride to national competition. We consist of over one hundred and fifty riders who enjoy riding Road, Cross Country, Downhill, BMX, and Track. ​Some of our members are interested in raising their level of competition and enjoy training and racing while others simply enjoy getting out into the countryside. We try to bring people together, show people new places, go on trips to great riding destinations and have a fun time in the process.

Club Rides

During term time we ride Wednesday's at 2pm and Sundays at 10am both road and XC.

We meet on the Clifton side of the Clifton Suspension Bridge, sort ourselves in terms of ability and head off by quarter past the hour.

For more information check out the discipline page.

Downhill
