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 TriVet
Locally run 100 - mile rides:-
Wednesday 10th July - Northampton 99; 24th July - Hilly Hundred; 14th August - Meriden 100
2020 didn't see the group able to plan long rides but this last summer we did manage a 100 mile ride into the edge of the Cotswolds going via Wellesbourne to Hook Norton returning via Warmington and Daventry.
This year's Christmas lunch was at Kilworth Springs Golf Club on December 22nd 2021; this year's event will take place at Kilworth on Dec 21st.
Oct 2022 Update - All rides will start at 09:30 until further notice. An initial autumn/winter rides list is now available.
