About our club
Welcome to Cotswold Veldrijden, our exciting race team. We have brought together riders from the local Cotswold area to create a new team with improved numbers focused on all manner of bike racing.
The club started as a cyclocross race team but the ethos of the team soon changed all that and we have now attracted a number of new riders of ages from 8-80, who ride Cyclocross, road, MTB and track.
We enjoy the club feel of supporting each other. With a team of sufficient numbers we are able to generate team league points and positions, pit crew for each other during races, share lifts to events, share equipment etc. We organise races and reinvest in the riders and the team.
***We now run a very popular Cotswold Veldrijen Mini Racers Development squad. This is aimed at 6 to 12 year olds, to develop their cycling skills as a cyclist & as a racer. Its off road, safe & fun, so if you are interested please contact us for more details***
our aims at the start of the year were;
• Compete in the Wessex Cyclo-Cross League – we have riders in all categories
• Compete in National Trophy Races - we have riders in all categories
• Compete in the National Championships - once again we are cyclocross 50+ National Champions
• Attempt to race in Belgium – Claire Smith has raced the Koppenberg Cross in Belgium.
• Travel to watch International Cross events in Belgium
