Road Cycling

Sports Development

Welcome! We are Southampton University Road Cycling Club and our passion is cycling! Join us and immerse yourself in the wonderful world that is being a part of a great cycling club.

Boasting a membership of over 100 members, SURC is growing and we want you to be a part of it. So slip on your shoes, grab your helmet and get on your bike! New to cycling? Casual cyclist? Experienced racer? SURC is here to cater for everyone regardless of experience or ability. We organise a range of indoor and outdoor cycling-based training activities throughout the year.

A Wednesday club ride gives everyone a chance to cycle regularly with a led group at their ability level. Spinning and roller session are great indoor training activities, especially when the weather outside is typically British.

Training with club-mates and friends is great fun too! The club provides plenty of opportunities to learn and excel at track cycling with lots of trips to one of the 2 local velodromes and regular trips to Olympic-sized indoor velodromes! The club has a structured track progression and development program with coaching from trained members within the club. The club participates in all road and track BUCS cycling events and has had great success in recent years.

Anyone keen and excelling at their cycling can compete for the club, gold medals have been won! We do spend some time off the bikes too, with lots of fun socials throughout the year.

Most are actually non-alcoholic and focus around other activities such as food, baking, or just chatting in good company..
