1. Club Rides & Events

Rides are provided for Club Members every Sunday. Check the Calendar page for more info.

Club events include a full Time Trial Club Events calendar throughout the spring and summer, two Audax events in May and an Under 18s MTB Race Series.

We hold an annual Open 25 Time Trial event. This has typically been held in late March and club members usually ride for free. The club hosts Cyclocross events as part of the Western League series.

RDFCC also assist and advise on the Wild Boar Chase which is organised by the Forest of Dean Lions Club.
