Burnley And Pendle CTC

Cyclists Touring Club

Burnley And Pendle CTC, Cycle Touring Club, East Lancashire

A very warm welcome to your local Cycling Touring Club website.

The Club is part of CTC, the UK's national cyclists organisation. See www.ctc.org.uk. We are a very active and friendly cycling club, offering you a chance to explore the scenic byways of Pendleside, the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland "under your own steam" with like minded people.

Every Sunday we offer a choice of rides seeking out quiet country lanes with stops to socialise in cafes and village tearooms.

There is a midweek ride/social on Tuesday evening.

A Saturday morning, half day ride is also available.

We had run a monthly guided Mountain Bike Ride, on a Saturday, although none are currently scheduled due to lack of demand.

New riders will be made very welcome on all of our rides.

We do put on a series of rides, particularly through the spring and summer which are specifically aimed at new riders and families with children.

Whilst we would always encourage children to be accompanied by a parent or guardian, we can take unaccompanied children on our rides from the age of 13 with a completed parental consent form.

Details of all our rides can be found on the 'Rides List' which we produce quarterly. A copy can be downloaded from this website.

New rider enquiries should be directed to Harry Taylor on 01282 712185 or e-mail               .

If you have any queries at all please do not hesitate to get in touch, via our contact details?


Our Current Rides List is available to download. Visit our Rides List page.
