Somerset Road Club

The Home of Cycling in Taunton

Welcome

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 Page  and 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.

Eleven and a half hardy riders enjoyed the annual pre-Christmas EOSR yesterday to cafe 750 @ Haynes Motor Museum to be treated to a free coffee or tea courtesy of SRC.
Roads were damp but the sun was out and the floods were avoided.
Highest mileage award goes to Mark Deakin with 82miles! πŸ’ͺ🏻
Thanks to all that made it along. Merry Christmas!
