The Bicycle Icycle

Type: 
Local Group Event (inc DATC and Audax Rides)
Cost: 
£2.00

Portsmouth: Easy ride

These rides are a great way to start group cycling. Typically we spend two to three hours cycling with a break for coffee and cake somewhere on the way. We don’t do big hills and we try to keep to quiet roads or cycle paths where we can.

 

Portsmouth: Sunday Morning ride

These are designed to appeal to people who want to explore the local countryside by bike, with a sociable group at a medium pace. They start from one of three different locations to the North of the City and last for about 3 hours, plus the mandatory stop for coffee and cake of course!

 

Portsmouth: Faster Sunday ride

All day rides at a faster pace than our other rides. They leave from Cosham library. The rides usually stop for elevenses, lunch and tea. New riders are welcome but, if you are new to group riding, one of our other rides would be a better starting point.

 

Portsmouth: Wednesday ride

The full ride usually leaves from the Spring Centre, Havant and stops for elevenses, lunch and, sometimes, afternoon tea. Some riders go to elevenses and come back from there. Others meet us at the coffee stop. We often split the ride with the more energetic group taking a longer and/or hillier route.

Portsmouth: Saturday ride

The full ride usually leaves from the Spring Centre, Havant and stops for elevenses, lunch and, sometime, afternoon tea.  Some riders go to elevenses ad come back from there.  Others meet us at the coffee stop.  We often split the ride with the more energetic group taking a longer and/or hillier route.

From road safety posters to teenage cycling instructor - my journey to the CTC

Now volunteering as CTC's Communications Officer in Reading and offering cycle training to my fellow students at Reading University, I would like to share the story of my journey to being part of CTC.

From a very early age I was thrust into the world of road safety. My dad worked for Sandwell Council, which meant I, along with other members of my family, often appeared photographed in road safety publications. At one time you couldn't go through the Sandwell area without seeing my photo plastered on the side of a bus reminding people to 'Belt up!'

Brighton and Hove CTC launch 'Shed Rides' to encourage new members

With over two thirds of bicycles stuck in a garden shed and hardly ever seeing the light of day, the Brighton and Hove CTC Member Group has come up with an ingenious plan to encourage more people to cycle in the New Year.

Members of the Brighton and Hove CTC are introducing the ‘Shed Rides’ aimed at those slightly reluctant cyclists who  have a bike buried under plant pots and half empty tins of paint somewhere in the garden shed.
