About

Sussex Revolution VC (SRVC) is a contemporary cycling club based in Mid Sussex formed in 2014. We are a club committed to dedicated cyclists, either experienced or looking to develop their abilities. SRVC currently competes in local road racing events, time trials as well as local and international sportives.

Race

SRVC have an ambitious race team, currently racing across South East England in popular events such as the Goodwood Summer Series and the Surrey Cycle Racing League. In 2015 we were placed 6th in the Surrey League with 325 points. We have an ambitious race team ranging from 4th to 2nd cat, with clear progression should you desire.

Train

SRVC run our effective Saturday training ride throughout the year, with an alternating route and split ability groups. The emphasis on much of our training is race preparation. Please see below for details.

Social

SRVC operates regular events allowing riders to socialise off the bike. We also organise annual training camps as well as other trips abroad and locally, forming excellent teamwork and friendship. We're a club of friends firstly and we are always keen to see new faces.

Train with us

Saturday Morning

Year Round

Our renowned Saturday training rides will improve your strength and threshold. A staggered depart of 2-3 groups ranging from 20mph to 23mph over a 45 mile course with a sprint finish. This is a structured training ride rather than a social and as such we do not stop for punctures or dropped riders. Please familiarise yourself with the route, bring a phone and be prepared for punctures. We alternate between two routes, a flat route and a more hilly route, depending on conditions and what we fancy on the day. See below.
