CTC Scotland

CTC the Scottish cycling charity

At local level, CTC members form Member Groups to organise rides, tours, events and training, as well as sometimes getting involved in local campaigning.

CTC Scotland brings together representatives of these Member Groups, and other organisations, to discuss and deal with matters relating to cycling in Scotland. There are many local cycling clubs and several cycle campaigning groups in Scotland and the rest of the UK. CTC is the one body which embraces all kinds of cycle use and interests.
