CTC Rugby is a Cycling UK informal group. During May, 2018, we celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Rugby Wednesday Riders, founded by Avril Eyre in 1993. Now she leads the way having gone electric, enabling her to continue group riding as our oldest regular member.

Rugby lies close to the eastern border of Warwickshire. This allows our rides to visit the neighbouring counties of Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and even Oxfordshire. Consequently we experience a variety of scenery on our day rides.
The Wednesday Riders form the main group, having led day rides which begin at one of five designated places close to Rugby, generally entailing a morning coffee stop, pub lunch and, often, an afternoon cafe stop. These rides vary in length from about 45 miles during the winter, extending to an annual summer 100 mile ride, usually taken at an average of 11-12 mph. A few members only come for part of the ride.
During 2019 there were a number of long rides to challenge members:
Sunday 2nd June - CTC Coventry TriVe
Locally run 100 - mile rides:-
Wednesday 10th July - Northampton 99; 24th July - Hilly Hundred; 14th August - Meriden 100
Sept 2021 Update - The group didn't initially publish a full list of rides for summer 2021 as they were seen as uncertain due to changing Covid rules. However, ride leaders and start locations were agreed for the summer and individual ride details were updated on the website as they got confirmed by ride co-ordinators. A winter programme has now been produced which lists an outline of ride start locations and ride co-ordinators with individual ride details being updated on the site in the week prior to the ride as was done through the summer.
For the winter session (Sep to Mar), start times will be 09:30a.m. with the exception of the Christmas lunch ride.
