Welcome to Alton Cycling Club - a community-based and volunteer-run club
Established in 1878, Alton Cycling Club (Alton CC) has more than 100 members. We’re a friendly cycling club based in Alton, Hampshire and we have many members from Alton’s surrounding villages too. Our aim is to offer a cycling club that promotes fun, safety, bike etiquette and personal development.
Road cycling forms a major part of our activities with differently paced club-runs on weekends and some weekdays, but we also have a long history of time-trials in Hampshire. We are proud to be affiliated to both British Cycling and Cycling Time Trials, the national bodies for cycle racing.
Club members also get involved with some track, MTB, cyclocross and Zwift riding. We typically run an annual training camp in the late spring somewhere warm (2022 in Girona, Spain) and have started to organise shorter bikepacking trips in the UK.

Segment of the Month Competition: Alton CC continues to host this popular competition, open to all members. Each month a different Strava segment is selected. Whoever records the fastest adjusted time (male and female) over the segment is the stage winner. The results are updated monthly on the Segment Challenge page. To enter you need to register using this form. You can read the full competition rules here and find out more about Strava in this introductory guide.
Following the success of the 2022 Audax in memory of our club member, Jim Woods, who tragically died of a brain tumour in 2020, Alton CC are organising a second Audax event on 9th July 2023, everyone is welcome to join.
