Club Overview

The Taunton Vale Cycle Race Association is an association of cycle clubs that use the Royal Naval Airfield Merryfield, Ilton for cycle races and training throughout the year.

On Thursday evenings from Mid April to early September there is organised training on the airfield circuit for both Seniors and Juniors.  The Senior training takes the form of race training round the airfield and is split into ability based groups with riders able to choose which group they feel comfortable in. The Juniors meanwhile have dedicated coaches that will organise the sessions usually in the middle of the airfield to a structured programme of different tasks.  Details of session dates are on the Calendar here

Membership forms are available here, however the TVCRA also offer a come and try it Taster session for £5 (seniors/juniors) and £2 for juveniles - fees payable to the duty club rep on the night.

The main circuit uses the perimeter track of the airfield, 3.2 miles as shown below
