About MVCC

 

As the name suggests, Meon Valley Cycling Club is based in the heart of the rolling hills of the Meon Valley (Hampshire). The club draws its members from the villages of Swanmore, Bishops Waltham, Wickham and the surrounding area (some members come from as far as Cardiff and Wokingham).

Initially riding together since 2007, it took until 2013 when the group had expanded to over 20 riders that MVCC was formed. 

More recently we designed a kit to help unite the team and to identify our group and keep together during sportive rides.

It must be noted that we are not trying to rival or draw members from other really good local clubs such as Fareham Wheelers and Portsmouth North End. We just wanted to form a club as we all live in the area and we ride together. 

We are not a racing club (although we have been known to do the odd TT and we do have a couple of youth riders who race). However as the club evolves and the demand dictates we will put a team out.

Our main passion is riding together in organised sportives, self organised foreign tours (tours include to date: London to Paris, 4 day tour of Vendee, Pau to Barcelona and Tour of Flanders) and weekly club runs. Our mantra is that no one gets left behind!

Joining is easy, simply go to our contacts page and email us, alternatively, please check the “What’s On” section to see where and when we are meeting.
