What we’re about

*** Please note: we are maintaining this page ***
*** If your details indicate that you have not cycled with CTC on a regular basis or become a Cycling UK member after 3 CTC rides, we will remove you from the group. You may rejoin with the expectation you are an active member and join Cycling UK. Thank you***

CTC Glasgow is the volunteer-lead member group of Cycling UK for the Greater Glasgow & Lanarkshire areas. We are primarily set up to offer friendly group cycling to Cycling UK members of all abilities within these areas. As well as offering group riding, we do our best to protect the interests of existing and would-be cyclists, and to inspire people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to discover the joys of cycling. As our historic name suggests(*) we are not a racing club and our rides are generally moderate-paced day rides, though we also run leisurely paced and faster rides on the basis of the needs of the membership. We also run occasional cycling weekends. (*Cycle Touring Club)

We also offer a welcome to non-Cycling UK members onto our rides on the understanding that after 3 rides with us, they must join Cycling UK should they wish to continue. This is for insurance reasons. Cycling UK, the national cycling charity, has championed the cause of cycling since 1878 and the benefits of joining are many including insurance, cycling advice, legal support, holiday opportunities and discounts. Membership is highly recommended. The website can be viewed here

As an independent, democratic organisation, CTC Glasgow reflects the commitment of our members, volunteers and partners to make cycling mainstream, making a lasting difference to the lives of individuals and communities.
