Cycling is a beautiful thing. From touring the countryside to descending a mountainside, whatever type of cyclist you are, CTC has something for everyone.
Family and Leisure
Along with campaigning and utility riding, cycling for pleasure is what CTC is all about. From deciding whether to ride while pregnant to setting out on your first family cycling adventures, CTC's guides will help you make the most of your riding.
CTC offers a unique route information library for the UK and for over 90 countries worldwide. CTC members can access over 600 written route sheets from leisurely weekends, through to several weeks in the saddle.
Whether you are a seasoned mountain biker or have just bought your first mountain bike, CTC can offer you all the advice, training, courses and support you need to ride off-road.
CTC is the perfect partner of cyclists who enjoy riding performance road bikes but don't necessarily want to race. With the continuing popularity of sportives, challenge rides and charity rides, this section is dedicated to the 'non-competitive' rider.
A commuter cyclist
Cycling to work in the UK is becoming more and more popular. From providing information on buying your first bike through to encouraging your employer to provide cycle parking, showers and cycle training, CTC can help you hit the road - or track - to work by bike.
Inclusive Cycling
Using an adapted cycle is a fantastic way for everyone to have fun, gain more independence and enjoy a sense of freedom. Whatever type of cycle, adaptation or support you need there is likely to be a solution, whether you have a disability, lack balance or want to improve your confidence.
