About The Group

Rochdale CTC and the East Lancashire Road Club are basically one cycling club.

Rochdale CTC are an informal group within Manchester & District CTC and the East Lancs RC are an affiliated club to Cycling UK.

Basically the East Lancs RC are the "racing" arm of Rochdale CTC.

In addition, the East Lancs RC are affiliated to all the major and local cycling bodies, which includes British Cycling, Cycling Time Trials, the Manchester & District Time Trials Association, the Manchester & District Ladies Time Trial Association, the north Lancs Time Trial Association and finally British Triathlon.

The Club is centrally located in Rochdale, but the membership, currently at approximately 140 members, now comes from Oldham, Middleton, north Manchester, Bacup and Todmorden.

Our members are aged from 8 to 80 years old, so you are never to old to join our Club.

The Club web site address is www.eastlancsroadclub.org.uk   

The Club is a Go Ride Club as promoted by British Cycling, in recognition of the programme to develop young riders.

We have a women's secretary to promote our ladies group, and we promote equality between men and women in all aspects of the club affairs and events.

The Club has a comprehensive programme of Rides and Destinations which can be viewed on the Calendar on the web site.

All Rides start from Rochdale Leisure Centre and go north, south, east and west to visit points of interest, with short medium and long distance Rides to suit the individual, and always a good cafe stop to refresh before the return.

We also have a strong social side to the Club with events taking place all through the year.
