The partnership will encourage CTC’s 70,000 members to access the CyclingBuddy website and give them the opportunity show they are CTC members in their profile.
Whilst the CyclingBuddy community will be encouraged to consider CTC membership to support their cycling activities. They will also gain access to CTC benefits including local cycling groups, clubs, training and specialist cycling insurance.
The CyclingBuddy online network is a free website that helps members ‘buddy up’ to go cycling. Members can also log their rides, map and share their favourite routes and search for cycling events.
CyclingBuddy founder Tony Piedade said: “The partnership with CTC is an obvious one; we share the common goal of helping people take up cycling and give them the social network to keep them cycling.”
CTC Chief Executive Gordon Seabright said: “CyclingBuddy is a great fit for us as the national cycling charity. We work hard to inspire people to cycle and getting both our members and cycling newcomers to be part of the CyclingBuddy online network is an excellent way to support people to get the most out of cycling.”
