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...

Sunday Club Rides


Sunday Club Rides

The usual Sunday club ride leaves the Pink Pub at 9am. We have a 'traditional route' to Stansted with a stop at Tangmere to meet anyone joining us there.

If the group is sufficient, we take the opportunity to split at Lavant and for some to take a more challenging (faster and hillier) route to Stansted. We anticipate the split group will set a pace of between 18-20 and will proceed without break to Stansted to re-join the rest for coffee and cake. Please make sure you can maintain this pace before joining them. If you have any doubts please speak to one of the group leaders beforehand.

For everyone this should be a social, hopefully fun ride, please don't think you are not fit, too slow etc. ALL are welcome, so don't be shy.

BRCC Club ride format is observed, so no-one left behind, mechanical assistance given if required and we take a relaxed/steady Sunday morning pace. This is meant to be a enjoyable, social opprotunity to get out there and share the love of cycling. There are other chances to race and 'conquer the hills' or 'beat the strava segments' if that's want you want to do.

Although assistance will be given with any mechanical issues, please bring a basic repair kit with you including a spare tube, pump and tyre levers. If you're not sure, have a chat with any of the regular members while you're out with us to see what they would recommend you include.


We do try to keep the web page up to date but please check our Facebook group page for any last-minute changes.

Whether it’s the 9am club ride, sportive, training or any one of the other events taking place this weekend here’s hoping for good weather, may the wind always be behind you and the puncture fairies be on holiday. Have a great weekend and be safe.

Club Sponsored Charity for 2018

Bognor Regis Cycling Club, Is raising money throughout 2018 for the Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance service. They provide a Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS), responding to patients who have suffered trauma or serious medical emergencies.

They operate 24 hours a day, ensuring they will be there for the most critically ill and injured people in the region. Operating two aircraft – one from the Marden base in daylight hours, and the other from their Redhill base 24 hours a day. It means that no matter where you are in Kent, Surrey or Sussex, you are never more than 20 minutes away from the life-saving care that they can bring directly to your side.

As a charity, they rely almost entirely on donations and fundraising, and without this kind support, they simply could not continue their life-saving work.

As a club we hope that we are never in a situation where we need their services, but it is good to know they are there and have decided to take this year to raise as much money as we can to towards this cause

Pancreatic Cancer UKJust Giving Link

We have set up a JustGiving page ( https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/brcc-2018 ) so that donations can be made in a simple and easy way. But please give generously to the tea and coffee funds at all our events through the season.

The organisation's web site is at: https://www.kssairambulance.org.uk
