About us 

CTC Coventry is a friendly and varied group of touring cyclists of all ages who have a shared enjoyment of fellowship and the great outdoors.

New members of all abilities are always welcome, so come along and join us on one of our regular rides. Our experienced leaders will show you the best country lanes in the lovely countryside of Warwickshire and surrounding counties with stops in a selection of our many cafés.

The regular rides programme is interspersed with special events and tours of varying length and in the winter we have a fortnightly clubroom evening.

Information about our activities is posted on our very comprehensive website, https://coventryctc.org.uk and last minute details are circulated in our weekly bulletin, for which you can sign up at https://coventryctc.org.uk/subscribe-to-the-newsletter.

It is 100-years since our foundation in 2021. To celebrate this special milestone we have planned a full programme of centenary events which can be viewed on our website at: https://coventryctc.org.uk/centenary. We have also published a commemorative booklet, which can be ordered or downloaded from https://coventryctc.org.uk/centenary-booklet-request
