Somerset Road Club

The Home of Cycling in Taunton


Somerset Road Club has members drawn from Taunton, Bridgwater and the surrounding area, with wide ranging interests and abilities. 

We have a rich history of racing, with members participating in road, time trial, cyclo-cross and MTB events. However, the majority of members just ride for pleasure, enjoying the social aspect of cycling in the club and a good coffee stop.

For more information about our rides, check out our Club Rides page and FAQ section.

If you’re interested in joining the club, please see further information under the FAQ section or email our Membership Secretary for further details.

In addition to this website, we also have a Facebook Group where more information is posted about current events and ad-hoc rides.

We are proud to have a long established relationship with our sponsor The Bicycle Chain, who have stores in Taunton, Bridgwater and Weston-super-Mare.  Please support our sponsor and ensure these local cycle stores continue to thrive.

We welcome members of all ages. However, we require that parents or guardians of young people taking part in all our club activities complete our parental consent form.  This form should be completed by the parent/guardian of anyone under the age of 18 years wishing to take part in Somerset Road Club activities.

In addition, riders under the age of 16 years must also be accompanied by a parent/guardian or a nominated accompanying adult provided on this form.

We have two rides leaving the Taunton area most Saturday mornings and a monthly Sunday ride (see the Club Rides section for more details).  Up-to-date information on rides are posted on our Facebook Group and the club calendar.
