Then Walsall Area CTC might just be the group for you.
We are a friendly group of cyclists with varied abilities and ambitions ranging from once a month social cyclists to commuters, cycling instructors and Sportive/Audax event riders, but together we share a passion for cycling.
We offer a range of easy to middle paced cycle road rides, starting from Aldridge, Pelsall or Bloxwich. Rides head out into rural Staffordshire, Shropshire, South Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Warwickshire with the occasional unusual off-road ride using towpaths and easy off-road routes. Rides are always easily achievable for ordinary leisure cyclists with typical average speeds between 12 - 14 mph and distances from 35 miles in the winter up to 70 miles in the summer. Our rides are primarily for socialising and fitness with morning and afternoon coffee stops and a lunch usually at a country pub or tourist attraction. For those who do not wish to be out all day, there is often a half day option. There are usually two groups formed at the start offering either an easy-paced social ride or a slightly faster and sometimes longer, fitness social ride. Everyone is made welcome and nobody is left behind.
We hope to hear from you and see you soon.
