Welcome to Aberdeen University Road Cycling Club

We cater for students and non-students, with our success being a reflection of the hard work and dedication of all those involved in cycling for the University of Aberdeen.

The club is open and welcoming to new members, regardless of cycling background. We have members from all walks of life, current students, university alumni and students from other North East institutions, such as Robert Gordon University, SRUC and NESCOL. If it's social cycling or competitive racing you are interested in, then send us a message to find out how you can get involved.

As a relatively new club, founded in late winter of 2011 by a group of enthusiastic like-minded students seeking the camaraderie of a university cycling club and a grand vision for delivering the sport to a wider audience within the University of Aberdeen, AURCC was born.

The club aims to create a welcoming and friendly environment to all those interested in and dedicated to the sport. Through training and technical sessions the club actively encourages and supports rides to compete locally, nationally and internationally with the aide of Aberdeen University Sports Association (AUSA).

The club offers weekly rides around the Aberdeenshire countryside with mixed groups of ability and fitness, meeting on Campus at Kings Pitch. Club rides are always weather dependant, so it is important to be socially involved with the club to keep up to date with events. Rides are lead by club captain, or an experienced member of the club. We implement a 'no-drop' strategy on rides, meaning that if somebody falls behind or has a mechanical issue, the group will not leave them.

*It is imperative that anybody wishing to attend club rides is familiar with the AURCC Safety Code (available to all members). This implies that riders understand the highway code, have a working, mechanically sound bike and are wearing appropriate equipment*

Additionally, the club offers Strength and Conditioning sessions at Kings Pavilion, in partnership with Aberdeen University Mountain Biking (AUMBC). With the help of Aberdeen University Triathletes, weekly spin sessions are held in the newly developed Cycle Studio at Aberdeen Sports Village. All club training times can be found below.
