CS Grupetto

We are a little bit different to most clubs in that we\'re primarily a group of friends who socialise off the bike, but we happen to share a common interest in cycling and cyclesport. We are based in Putney and have regular weekend rides out to Windsor and the Surrey Hills, as well as occasional trips elsewhere.

We have a wide variety of cycling interests amongst club members, from track riding to road racing, and sportives to bike polo. Several of our members have their race licences, and we\'re represented in every category including Elite

We regularly travel further afield to enjoy some of the classic races – this year quite a few of us have ridden the Tour of Flanders and Paris Roubaix sportives, and then watched the pros follow our tyre tracks. We also try and get to see the Ghent and Berlin six day track events.

At the core of the club ethos is a desire to enjoy good rides with good friends.


Road Racing

Nic Hutching racing Big Maggie in the Perf Pedals 2011

Freshly waxed legs glistening in the early morning light, the heady smell of embrocation fills the air as the tension becomes a living, physical thing… but enough about Tom’s preperation for his next holiday, what about the racing?

We are registered with British Cycling, so if you fancy testing your vistory salute then get in touch with Wayne who’ll sort out your race license.

We’ve got racers at Cats E/1/2/3/4 so if you want advice on starting then ask away. Our resident nutritional expert Nic will be happy to divulge his pre-race carbo loading techniques.
