Cycle rides

The Cambridge group of the CTC organises a range of rides including Saturday morning introductory rides, twice a month except in the winter. These are their shortest and easiest rides and are intended to be suitable for everyone. They start at 10.00 am at Brookside and cover about 15-20 miles at a gentle pace, stopping for refreshments at a cafe along the way. Anyone able to cycle around Cambridge should be fine on these rides. The various types of ride are described at http://site.ctc-cambridge.org.uk/2009/07/our-weekly-rides-programme.html. Dates are at http://rides.ctc-cambridge.org.uk/search/label/201006.

Campaign members may be interested to attend Planning Committee and Area Committee meetings, which often include cycling and walking issues.
