Start point for Saturday and Sunday rides
(For the start points of our Thursday rides, see here.)
Our Saturday morning, Sunday all-day and Sunday afternoon rides depart from the traditional club meeting point which is at Brookside (Lensfield Road end) on the southern edge of Cambridge City Centre. Our midweek evening rides also depart from here.
Cycling for pleasure
If you're looking for sociable and non-competitive bike rides in the local countryside, CTC Cambridge is the cycling club for you.
We're part of Cycling UK, the national charity that has been promoting cycling since 1878.

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.
