Hello! We are Cycle Bristol CTC, the local member group of Cycling UK, formerly The Cyclists' Touring Club, which is Britain's oldest and largest national cycling organisation.

As our name suggests, our focus is a little different from many other clubs. It's all about the essential spirit of "touring". That doesn't only mean exotic places, however, although there may occasionally be some of those! Our focus is neither speed nor endurance, but the pleasure of being out on the bicycle in pleasant surroundings, both locally and on trips away. On a ride with us you will have the support of experienced leaders and a companionable and varied group. Our members span many ages and levels of fitness. Some of our most active leaders are women. All our rides and trips aim at inclusivity in every sense. While some of our rides take a full day, they are never about competition, endurance, or hurry!

If this appeals to you then come and join us on one of our CYCLE TOURING TASTER RIDES which we have introduced this year. These are gentle paced rides suitable for most abilities aimed at introducing riders to the pleasure of cycle touring.
