About Plymouth CTC
<Link to latest Club run>
CTC Plymouth aims to provide interesting and challenging routes for cyclists in the Plymouth & surrounding area and operate two Sunday rides. We are a group of like-minded friends who place conviviality above attracting a large membership. Currently, with about ten regular members, we consider attraction rather than promotion to be the best approach to recruitment. If you enjoy cycling and would like to experience our unique and friendly approach, you can be sure of a sincere welcome. No need for formalities - follow our runs list and just turn up at the start when you want. We'll be happy to see you!
Group "A" rides about 25-45 miles. Most suited for experienced riders who enjoy a moderate challenge. Distances and speed vary according to terrain and time of year.
Group "B" - informal rides from Plympton Co-op (Ridgeway) of 10-20 miles. Ideal for beginners or experienced cyclists wanting social rides with shorter distances and a slower pace.
Sunday runs generally start at 9.30am and finish about 4.00pm. In the winter rides may start later, and in the summer may finish later as the lighter evenings allow. You will need to consult this website for an up-to-minute account.
We also occasionally do informal rides during the week for those of us not working, no particular day just as long as its dry and sunny. For more info contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Throughout the year we aim to provide a full programme of rides, events and activities.
We are always happy to welcome visitors. If you like what we do and want to stay, we normally ask you to become a member of the CTC after three runs. CTC membership runs at £43 per year currently (less for the over-65s or those on low incomes ) and provides a number of benefits:
Recommendation by some of our newest members:
" ... I did enjoy the cycle route that Trevor took us to on Sunday and the scenery around the South Hams along the Dart Valley Trail looking down at the river Dart was truly enjoyable and not to be missed.
Thanks for letting me join you for a short section of your ride on Sunday. I think it's highly likely that I may join you more formally for a future ride, possibly with a friend.
Thanks for the warm welcome guys. Nigel
