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...

David Prior, BRCC President

It is with great sadness that we have to report that Dave Prior, the BRCC President, passed away on July 28th. Our deepest condolences go to Sue and the family during this difficult time. Dave will be sorely missed on the Club Run, at the TT's and the spinning sessions he ran so enthusiastically.

The funeral service held at Chichester Crematorium on Monday 15th August was packed with friends and family along with representatives from many of the charities and voluntary organisations Dave had worked tirelessly for over the years. It was also great to see such a good turnout from local cycling clubs and his family were pleased to see such a show of respect from what had been such a big part of his life. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

The family have asked that instead of floral tributes, any donations could be made to their fund raising page in support of reasearch into pancreatic cancer. (Link below)

Just Giving - Carrie Prior


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.
