Rugby Velo win the interclub hill climb by 55.5 seconds. Go to results for individual times.

Sad news - Club President Bruce Townsend passed away on 12th September, aged 91.
Read about Bruce's life and career by following this link Pity the author mentioned the wrong club as Bruce was a lifelong member of Rugby RCC. We've posted our own obituary, just to keep the record straight.

Overpaid? The use of PayPal to pay TT entry fees means some of our members have actually overpaid (and a few still underpaid!). No one will miss out, go to overpaid to find out more.

Season's award winners - see story so far.

Simon Law wins our first event on our 'new' K10/25C course, with Oliver Billing our best 1st claim member. Go to results for all the details and results index to see the season so far. See also how the points tables & Vets & women's competitions have concluded after our short 9 event season. Vet on Standard tables added.

Go to course description to see details of our 'new' 25 mile course, to be used for our event on Sunday 6th September. This is effectively a one-lap version of our 50-mile course, with different start and finish points. Click on sketch map for a better view.

We've had many enquiries about our points competitions in this abbreviated season, so with a maximum of 9 events the committee view is that the best 6 events should count in any one category. We would also emphasise that to qualify a rider must have marshalled at least once.

Seb Palmer has shot into the lead of our 2020 Strava 12 hour challenge with a superb effort of 368.83km in an elapsed time of 11:59:52. Riding solo around Warwickshire, Worcestershire and Leicestershire, Seb maintained an impressive average speed of 32.6km/h. Congratulations to him and can anyone beat it?

Special Provisions for Club events
Due to Coronavirus we have had to make special provisions in organising our events and this will affect everyone!. For full details go to changes to Club TTs and check on your 'squad' number which will stay with you for the rest of the season,.Please read the special provisions required for marshalling and why we cannot accept private entries.

New for 2020 - the Strava Challenge!
This is a new way to resurrect the 12 & 24 hour competitions. Given the most recent announcements by BC and CTT about the postponement of organised events we want to give our members the opportunity to compete for some of our 2020 awards by riding at home. As our season is now unlikely to commence until July 1st 2020 at the earliest, the committee has decided to include indoor rides in the Strava 12 hour and 24 hour challenges. Go to Strava Challenge to read more.

Events list for 2020
We can now confirm our list of club events for the coming season. Go to 2020 Events.

Membership & TT Entry Fees
We've kept our fees frozen for 2020, possibly the lowest membership fees for a cycling club we know of. Full membership is £10, or £5 for retirees, even less for some students. You can pay anyway you like, with PayPal being the most popular. You don't need a PayPal account, just click on PayPal at the top of this page.

Entry fees for our club TTs are £3.50 per ride, with £4 for private trials. We subsidise U-18s still in education by charging £2 per ride. From these entry fees we pay a levy of £3 per ride to the CTT. See Fees for more information. Full membership is £10 or £5 for retirees, so you can pay any combination of these with a single payment up front to cover membership, a season's TTs (£59) and refreshments (£4).

Club Clothing
As announced at our Awards Evening we have transferred to NoPinz as our clothing supplier. This will allow members to order clothing direct, thus eliminating the need for the club to carry expensive stock. Just go to the NoPinz website to view our kit. To order you will need a password, contact Ollie BIlling on

As we move from Endura to Nopinz we are selling off our stock of Endura kit at a 30% discount. Go to Discounted Clothing to see what's available. To purchase any of these items contact Ollie BIlling on

Club Emails
The new booking system has a facility to send out an email message to all our members. This is a useful feature, but unfortunately email hosts have tightened up their systems to block 'phishing' emails. Sometimes these will be identified as spam or blocked altogether. Thus our messages which contain 'bookings.rugbyrcc' incur this treatment. The lesson is to check your Junk folder regularly.

Road Bike definition
With TT bikes getting quite expensive many people are looking at road bikes as a separate category in open events, and it's a less expensive way to get into the sport. Rugby RCC include a road bike category in our open TT on 25th July. Go to Road Bikes to see the definition.
