Cambridge cycle rides

CTC Cambridge holds up to six rides a week in the countryside around Cambridge. These range from short, leisurely-paced rides which last 2-3 hours on a Saturday morning, medium-length rides on a Sunday afternoon, to long rides on a Thursday or Sunday that last all day. All welcome. www.ctc-cambridge.org.uk

#CamRideHome starts at 6pm on the last Friday of each month from outside The Mill pub on Mill Lane, Cambridge. No-one takes responsibility for organising it and so it just depends on who turns up. Usually a few do and they enjoy a one-hour leisurely tour of the city finishing up at a pub. Follow the hash tag and enjoy.

Please note Cambridge Cycling Campaign reserves the right to decline to promote events or activities where helmets or high-visibility clothing are required or implied.
