Suggest cycling and walking infrastructure improvements to Surrey County Council

Echoes from the past

In 1968 a young Ian Price wrote down his record of his first two years of serious cycling – buying a bike, joining the CTC and W Surrey DA, and enthusiastically taking part in our activities. He recently unearthed this record, scanned it and emailed it to me. I have uploaded it to our History and Archives webpages here. Read how he and Russ rode the 100-mile standard ride in 5h 45m including a half-hour lunch break. Read half a dozen press cuttings, reports submitted weekly by our then President, Bill Inder, to the Woking News & Mail and the Surrey Advertiser. Read how Ian got himself into one of them by riding into Bucklebury ford at speed. Did he get through? Or did he fall in? Read …

Have you just got your old bike out of the shed?


Have you wanted to try it out on the much emptier roads whilst we are locked down? Build your confidence by joining one of our group rides. We will help you with any technical problems you may have and at the same time make sure you will never be left behind.


Now that lockdown has eased slightly, we have now started to arrange informal coffee meet-ups where members cycle solo or in small groups to prearranged open air meeting places where we can catch up and enjoy a drink before heading home again.


If you are interested in joining us please call one of our group leaders on this page who will be able to let you know where we planning to meet.


We are definitely not a “racing club”, we enjoy pottering around the lanes, visiting coffee shops and pubs on the way.


West Surrey Cycling Club (WSCC) is a branch of Cycling UK with over 200 active members who live in and around Guildford, Woking, Godalming, Farnham, Haslemere, and Camberley. You don’t have to be a member to join a ride, and we cater for all levels and ability in a way that is social, enjoyable and safe. Last year we organised 350 rides in the gorgeous scenery of Surrey and surrounding counties, led by experienced ride leaders.


Get in touch and we can let you know when our rides resume.
