Cycle Touring Equipment Library

Are you a Cycling UK member living in the Greater Glasgow

Have you wanted to go cycle touring but have been put off
by lack of lightweight camping equipment?

CTC Glasgow are in the fortunate position of having sufficient funds to purchase cycle camping equipment that CTC/Cycling UK members can borrow for free, with the proviso that they provide a suitable deposit against the safe return of the equipment. The equipment we have will allow 2 people to go on a cycle camping adventure. The only significant cycle touring items that you need to provide are appropriate bicycles with rear racks, plus your own sleeping bags

We have the following available for loan:





F10 Xenon UL 2+ (a 2-person tent with ample under-fly storage space)

Sleep Mats

Neoair venture Reg (light weight, low bulk but comfortable)


Trangia Model 27 UL (small meths stove with cooking pans)


2 sets of Ortlieb back rollers (40l/each, as waterproof as panniers

Seat Mats

Small folding mats so you don’t have to sit on wet grass



We can also provide light-weight mugs, plates and cutlery.

If you would like to borrow this equipment, please enquire
