Awards

Welcome to the VC Norwich club awards page.

As we are a diverse club that encourages many aspects of riding we also have a diverse range of club awards.
There are two main areas of awards,
Club cycling trophies for a range of different cycling activities supported by the club and for stand out/noteworthy individuals who have been involved with the club for that membership year.
