Welcome to Alton Cycling Club - a community-based and volunteer-run club

Established in 1878, Alton Cycling Club (ACC) has more than 100 members. We’re a friendly cycling club based in Alton, Hampshire, but we have many members from Alton’s surrounding villages too.

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, cyclocross and zwift riding too.

Explore our site to discover more about Alton’s longest running cycling club, how to join, our upcoming rides and time trials, and much more.

In memory of our club member Jim Woods who tragically died of a brain tumour in 2020, ACC are organising an Audax event on 10th July 2022, everyone is welcome to join.
