Ripon Loiterers began in 2000 and now ranks as one of the strongest and most active sections within CTC in the north and has a strongly increasing membership. At the latest count the group boasts 150 members.
The group each week puts on 5 separate types of run - hard, medium, easy, off road and family. One regular club run member is blind and has pool of pilots for his tandem drawn from the Loiterers. Bikes and equipment are often loaned until 'newbies' get started, and children are welcome.
Much work has been done by the Loiterers especially in the last 12 – 18 months in relation to safe routes to schools. The local primary school now has a significant increase in the number of children cycling to school from home.
