Cycle rides

CTC Cambridge organises a variety of rides throughout the week, all year round. Spring weather, and the clock change means longer days to enjoy, so they have put some longer rides back into the mix. But there’s a varied choice of rides: lots of favourites and most of them can be adjusted to suit the weather and the group on the day. On Sundays, they have all-day rides in addition to afternoon outings, and the twice-monthly Saturday morning introductory rides restarted in March. There are also Tuesday and Thursday day rides, as well as Wednesday evening rides. More information can be found online at www.ctc-cambridge.org.uk
