Cambridge University Cycling Club
We cater for all University members, providing access to all cycling disciplines from beginners to elite athletes.
As well as competing in BUCS races, we regularly organise social and touring rides which allow beginners to improve their fitness and to discover the countryside around Cambridge and beyond.
News about training, races, and results will be posted here. Check out our calendar of upcoming events on 'Training & Events'.

CUCC have competed in two BUCS events already this Easter, but the 25 mile TT holds extra importance as it is also our Varsity competition with Oxford. The aggregate fastest three times from each university decide the winner, and as Cambridge has won 45 out of the 60 total men’s events including every race since 2011 we’re feeling confident! Our women’s and men’s teams are made up of previous BUCS medallists, rising stars and promising freshers – scroll down to meet the teams.

Cambridge had a successful day at the BUCS TTT, with the Men’s A team winning with a new course record and the Men’s B and Women’s A teams both placing third and setting times that would have seen them win previous events. Read on for a race report by Ali Golby.
The second BUCS cycling event of the Easter break is the TTT – Team Time Trial. Teams of three riders will take on the U601B course near Bristol in the Bath University-organised race. All three riders must complete the course and the time of the last rider clinches the result – there’s nowhere to hide! However, CUCC is no stranger to heroic feats of teamwork: last year not only did the Men’s A team take the overall victory, but the Cambridge B team recorded a faster time than every other university to place second. Cambridge are fielding two of the strongest women’s teams in recent years and the Cambridge defenders for 2018 carry a combined 9 medals already so are certainly favourites for this year’s title.
