Reading CTC – Social Cycling Group

  • Cyclists welcome

Reading CTC is a thriving, friendly club which is part of the national CTC cycling organisation. We provide a wide range of social cycle rides and encourage people of all levels to enjoy being out on a bike.

  • We offer a variety of Road & Off-Road rides each week
  • Every Sunday: morning and all day options
  • Wednesday daytime plus evening pub rides
  • All cycling levels catered for – choose a ride to suit your choice of speed and distance
  • Great local scenery you never knew was there!
  • Friendly & social atmosphere

We run an active program of rides with options of distance and speed catering for both road and off-road cyclists. Our rides take in the best countryside of Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Wiltshire and Hampshire and are designed to avoid main roads wherever possible. We mainly ride during the day on a Sunday and Wednesday (daytime and evening rides) and also hold regular social events and cycling trips / weekends away throughout the year.

Reading CTC welcomes non-members on our rides and visitors can come along for free for a trial period.

With a wealth of local knowledge, a strong appreciation of the countryside and a focus on the social side of cycling, you’ll be surprised at what we have to offer.

Regardless of your age or ability, we would like to invite you to join our friendly group of cyclists. Off- road or on-road, seasoned cyclist, beginner or commuter, Reading CTC has something for you. If you simply want to get you or your family back in shape, meet new people or tour the UK countryside, your local CTC group can help.
