Policy on unsolicited advertising
We are always interested in hearing from possible mid-morning, lunch and late-afternoon tea stops in the local countryside around Cambridge. If we decide to visit we'll add a link to our website.
Whilst our members may well be interested in commercial cycling holidays, it isn't the role of CTC Cambridge to get involved in publicising them so please don't sent us adverts. They will just be deleted. Don't ask us to forward adverts for cycling holidays to our members; we won't. And please don't ask us to add links to hotels and tour operators to our links page; we won't.

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 morning 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 and is usually shorter than the Sunday rides (at around 40-70 miles).
