Bath CC has been around for a long time and has a deep history of record setting. In the past, these records have been kept in a bound volume. Thanks to the work of Peter Wilson and Tony Thorne, they are now available electronically.
If you are interested in putting faces to the names of the records holders, or just in club history, it makes fascinating viewing. The links below provide PDF downloads (quite big due to the pictures) and are well worth viewing.
To celebrate the club reaching 50 lady members this past month and to join the 2015 Women’s Rapha 100 challenge, Bath CC decided to organise an exclusively female Club Run on the 26th July. After much precise planning and advertising the great day arrived but so did the wind and the rain!
The ladies convened in an orderly fashion under one of the canopies on Cleveland Bridge. Each secretly hoping, at the time, we would be the only one to turn up and we could just go home to bed. But no – a brave 11 made it under the shelter with only 2 of the ‘less fair sex’ who had turned up for the Sunday club run and Andy (Stewart) who dropped by on his way to marshalling another event.
After Liz had left her waterproof trousers in a bush on Cleveland Bridge, following a serious assault from the fashion police, we were ready for the obligatory photo. Photo taken by Andy Stewart who risked his life in the middle of the road to get the shot (but probably all he could do after refusing to pack Liz’s wet trousers in his backpack).

38 riders competed at the Bath CC Club championship that was held on 18th June at a sunny Odd down circuit. Simon Ker won the Mens Race, Liz Matthews triumphed in the ladies and Charlie Shields took home the youth cup. Phil Swinden doubled up by wining the non racers race and then straight away became a racer and competed in the mens club championship.
Bath Cycling Club took on Velothon Wales and came out winners.
