Wyre Forest CRC was founded in 1977 and quickly established itself with a core of enthusiastic members, becoming active both socially and on the local road racing and time trial scene. We soon became known as ‘the friendly club’ due to the welcome new and prospective members were shown; an attitude that has remained to the current day.
Now, 40 years later, we have grown to become one of the most diverse and successful cycling clubs in the country, with a strong youth and female membership. Recent years have seen us achieve Go-Ride status and also achieve the prestigious Club Mark status through British Cycling. In 2010 a new purpose built 1.6km tarmac cycling circuit was constructed at Stourport Sports Club (SSC). The circuit was further enhanced with the addition of floodlighting in 2014.
Wyre Forest CRC is based at Stourport Sports Club and is the home club of the Stourport Cycle Circuit, giving access to the superb new clubhouse facilities in addition to free priority time on the circuit for club members. Although we are based in Stourport, our members are spread over Worcestershire, from Pershore, through Worcester up to Bridgnorth and Birmingham.
We are not just a racing club; many of our members never race or ride competitively, but enjoy club runs, training rides, many social evenings and just being out on the bike with friends that they have made through the club.
Club members receive a huge range of benefits including free coaching by British Cycling coaches, discounts at local bike shops, discounts on training DVD’s, reduced club TT entry fees, training rides, club runs, Go-Ride youth coaching, velodrome trips, casual clothing, Endura club kit, etc.
