Ben Keenan runs a Wattbike Studio in Cheltenham and the other week he did a promo week of entirely free sessions which some of our members attended. Subsequently he would like to offer the club a discount code to those who wish to return for further sessions, and to those who would like to come along for the first time.
He runs onscreen training programmes.  These are interval sessions, but he also have sportive, Tri and TT specific 9 week programmes that he can set people up with.  This is more of hill efforts, VO2 and Pyramid type sessions.  These programmes come from a Level 2 British Cycling Coach.
If you don’t know about Wattbikes, he says he is able to analyse and improve riders pedalling technique which is an excellent way of getting faster with no more effort.
The code is CCCC20
He is also going to be taking booking for clubs who want to do a monthly or bi-weekly group session.  This will be either an on screen programme, or a regular fitness test to keep an eye on progress.  If you would like to do this, please let know and he can discuss dates, prices and terms.

Details of the winter training road rides for 2016-2017 can now be found on the winter rides page.

Thinking of joining the club or perhaps renewing your membership??  Well, now is the perfect time as membership is even better value given that the prices have been reduced for 2017 and anyone joining now will get membership cover right through to the end of next year.

The benefits of becoming a member of the Cheltenham & County Cycling Club are:

  • High quality clothing in club colours at subsidised prices;
  • Information and advice on all aspects of cycling;
  • Affiliation to the major cycling organisations and other cycling related groups;
  • Friendly leisure riding and the support of team mates in competitions;
  • The opportunity to do some fantastic ad hoc events like Track days or MTB Away Weekends;
  • Lots of great reductions at local bike shops, which cover all types of riding from commuting, bouncing around in the mud or enjoying the fantastic roads of the Cotswolds.

Just to recap:

Note that these proposed rates are subject to approval at the club’s AGM.

The Membership Secretary can be contacted via the Contacts Page and he has a handy guide to help members to use the British Cycling portal, which is safe and secure so your payment details do NOT get shared with anyone in the club or BC.

The club’s AGM will be held at the Exmouth Arms, Bath Road, Cheltenham on Wednesday 16th November at 19:30.

The minutes of the 2015 AGM are now available. These will be voted on at the 2016 AGM – if you are attending please read them beforehand. Paper copies of the minutes will not be available at the AGM.

There’s a new place in the county to get exclusive cycling routes in Gloucestershire. Each week, those that sign up to the Cyced newsletter will receive two routes weekly. They’re suitable for every cyclist and will cover not only Cheltenham but other Gloucestershire locations too. As advocates of cycling, Cyced hopes to bring the Gloucestershire cycling community closer and encourage more people to join the local cycling clubs such as CCCC. For more information, visit them at
