Winchester’s Cycling Club

Velo Club Venta (VCV) is a cycling club based in Winchester for cyclists seeking an active club-riding and racing scene. Our members come from Winchester and the surrounding area. We pride ourselves on our friendly atmosphere and all-inclusive policy. The club includes many experienced cyclists who can offer advice and guidance on every aspect of the sport.

Events & Rides

We take part and organise events across most aspects of cycling, all year round. The club is affiliated with all the major racing organisations to cater for those wanting to race, with time trials, road races and cyclo-cross. We are also actively engaged in supporting many other local cycling events.

The club runs regular club/training rides catering for a range of abilities, on a Tuesday night and Sunday morning. You can also find out more about us on our Facebook page.

Young Riders

The Club welcomes youth riders participating on our Club and training rides as long as membership and parental consent is in place beforehand. U16s will need to be in the company of a parent or guardian unless specific permission has been sought ahead of riding from the Club Secretary. Youth riders should bear in mind the required average pace and duration of the ride and be comfortable in achieving these before participating.

Anyone participating on a Club ride or in a Club organised racing event (road or off-road) is required to wear a helmet.

CLUB HISTORY

Velo Club Venta takes its name from Venta Belgarum, the name of the Roman town where Winchester now stands. Formed in 1970, we are proud to be part of Winchester’s organised cycling heritage that can be traced back to the end of World War II. Today the club is now enjoying a rapid growth in its membership.
