Whether you’re new to cycling, ride regularly or want to get back into it, Cycling UK caters for you. For 140 years, Cycling UK, formerly CTC, has championed a simple belief – that cycling is a wonderful gift that should remain accessible and available to all.
£10m third party liability insurance cover to protect you on and off road
The third party liability insurance cover is there to protect you from a claim made by a third party, on and off road. With an indemnity limit of £10m it offers invaluable cover when you need it the most. Worldwide except USA and Canada.
Rides and events
Local rides and events with over 13,000 rides every year
Whatever cycling you do, we have hundreds of local groups across the country. You’ll be able to join in and ride with other cyclists, discovering new places and making friends along the way.

Why one of our members joined us
Because I ride a bike. I don’t tour, not now. I did in my youth, 30 years ago. I ride for pleasure. I ride a mountain bike. I ride to work. I ride for work. It seemed to be the organisation to support. I was a member in my youth when I was cycle touring. I rejoined five years ago when I came back to cycling.
