Welcome to Cotswold Veldrijden (pronounced vél-traiden) our exciting race team.
We have brought together riders from the local Cotswold area to create a race team. The club started as a cyclocross race team but the ethos of the team soon began attracting riders from every age group and discipline. We now have now riders who also race Road, Time Trials, Mountain Bikes and track. Our youngest members are under 12 and our oldest is 80!
We enjoy the club feel of supporting each other, we compete in the local Wessex League CX are able to field riders in all categories, we all pit crew for each other during races, share lifts to events and share equipment, we have riders of all abilities, it’s not all about winning, although that’s nice and we love it when we do, it’s about getting people to ride and race their bikes.
We organise races, regular coaching sessions, turbo training sessions and this year we are introducing a sportive. We are a non-profit team everything we make we reinvest back into the riders and the team, to enable everyone to get involved and race.
Our Ethos is simple come and race and come and help out so others can race!
