We have two regular club runs each Sunday morning, usually 50 miles with a cafe stop.

Club Runs

Cyclocross is a winter sport that's has regained popularity in recent years - NBRC members race regularly

Cyclocross

Regular road racing through the season at the MK Bowl, and on road circuits nationwide, including national events.

Road Racing

NBRC members regularly tour by bike, in the UK and abroad. This is a scene from Robert's recent tour in the Outer Hebrides.

Cycle Touring

Time trials are popular, and a good introduction to competitive cycling. Find out about our 2016 club time trials.

Time Trials

NBRC Coronavirus Update 8/5/20 (updated 6/8/20)

The NBRC Committee hopes that all members and their families are coping with the current pandemic situation, and have remained well.
The last communication we issued was an announcement on our Facebook group page that all our club events have been cancelled until further notice. This remains in force.
As a consequence of the UK lockdown, the club cannot hold group rides or club runs, nor can it organise sporting events until further notice.
British Cycling and Cycling Time Trials have both suspended activity until June 30th, and this may be extended further as the pandemic runs its course. Our club time trial calendar for 2020 can be found on our website, and if possible we will start running these events once lockdown is over – though this would obviously depend on detailed guidance on how sporting events may take place.
We are also unable to hold club meetings or face to face committee meetings.

In light of this situation, we have decided that members who join or renew for (or during) 2020 will have their membership extended for 2021.

Update 6/8/20: Please note the report of the most recent committee meetings here. The committee have decided that club events should not restart until January1st 2021; we propose holding club meetings online; Sunday club rides are restarting. Full details at the link.

NBRC on Social Media

The North Bucks Road Club has a Facebook page. This is a good place to look for last minute notes about events, details of extra club rides etc. It's managed separately from this website, but material is copied between the two sites. You can always access the Facebook page via the menu item above.

We also now have a Twitter account - @NorthBucksRC.

If you're keen on using newsfeeds, there is an RSS feed of Latest News.

Here is the confirmed club time trial calendar. It's based pretty closely on the 2014 calendar, but has a few changes, such as some excursions to the Brogborough course. Here's a pdf version.

We will use the same League table system as in 2014, but with the following categories:

  • Open League
  • NBRC League (points calculated by open places) - only open to NBRC First Claim members, prizes will be awarded
  • Open Veterans League (points calculated from placing on veteran standard)
  • NBRC Veterans League (points calculated from open event placing on veteran standard) - only open to NBRC First Claim members, prizes will be awarded
  • NBRC Handicap League (points calculated using placings on Bryan's magic handicapping system) - only open to NBRC First Claim members, prizes will be awarded

Only First Claim members of NBRC are eligible for the NBRC Leagues (for which prizes will be awarded at the Club Dinner).

Event entry is £2.50 (First and Second Claim NBRC members) or £3.00 (non-members).

Two events have been designated "come and try it" events: the Astwood events on Saturday 21st March and Wednesday 17th June. We will alter the start/finish points for those events so we can use the Bike Bus cafe. Further details when the event details are announced.
