Cycle rides

If you’re looking for sociable and non-competitive cycle rides in the countryside around Cambridge, why not go for a ride with CTC Cambridge? We know all the nicest routes! We offer up to seven rides a week with a variety of speeds and distances, and non-CTC members are welcome to come and try us out. See our calendar of rides at www.ctc-cambridge.org.uk. All rides are graded to give an indication of speed and distance so you should be able to find a day, speed and distance which suits you. If you’re unsure, our Saturday morning leisurely rides are a good way to start.
