About us

Royal Dean Forest Cycling Club’s primary aim is to enjoy cycling –  whether that’s social or competitive – you’ll find us out on the roads, trails and tracks around the cycling utopia that is the Forest of Dean. We’re an eclectic club with a strong, 60 year long heritage spanning many flavours of cycling.

Our regular schedule of social club road, cyclo-cross and mountain bike rides is supplemented with audax, time trial, road racing and track events. The club is proud to be represented by members at local, regional and National open events.

We are affiliated with British Cycling as a Go-Ride Clubmark Club, Cycling Time Trial and Cyclists’ Touring Club (CTC).

For the latest club rides, we compile a monthly spreadsheet which is also updated regularly on our facebook page.
