Rides in Sept and Oct
On most Sundays our all-day ride is replaced by a slightly shorter 2-stop ride which stops for morning coffee and lunch and then returns directly back to Cambridge without a tea stop. For more information see Rides in Sept and Oct.
Latest ride reports from the CTC Cambridge Blog
11 Oct: Sunday ride to Fordham and Chippenham
Nigel writes: With summer time ending in just two weeks' time there seems to be a feeling in Cambridge CTC that we'd better make the most of the fine days we're having now, since winter is just around the corner. (more)
8 Oct: Thursday ride to Newport and Great Bardfield
Edward writes: Last weekend the forecasts seemed to be telling us that the weather was on the change and last Thursday there was every reason to believe that it would be the last in such wonderful sunshine. (more)
4 Oct: Sunday ride to Meesden and Much Hadham
Nigel writes: It's October now, but the combination of a day of fine, sunny weather, a couple of particularly fine food stops and an excellent route allowed me to enjoy one of the best club rides for some time. (more)
4 Oct: Sunday afternoon ride to Hare Street

3 Oct: Saturday social ride to Grantchester
Craig writes: What a beautiful day! This was probably the last Saturday ride during this Indian summer we are having, as the weather is due to break down on Monday. (more)

What we do
We organise four or five cycle rides a week throughout the year. Newcomers are welcome on all our rides.
On most Sundays we have two rides: an all-day ride (from 60 to 90 miles) and an afternoon ride (30-50 miles), though on some Sundays in winter we have just a single ride. We also have shorter Saturday short social rides (15-25 miles) twice a month at a slower pace than the Sunday rides. We hold a mix of rides during the week. On Tuesdays our senior cyclists' group rides at a gentle pace to a pub for lunch and back (30-40 miles). On Wednesdays in the summer (and occasionally during the winter) we have short evening rides. And on Thursdays we have a very popular all-day ride that starts out-of-town.
