About us

Welcome to this forgotten corner of England! Blessed with a great network of quiet roads (though some need care due to potholes) with reasonable gradients for those less keen on serious hills. It's a great place to go riding with a number of the National Cycle Networks through our area, notably the Trans Pennine Trail, the Way of the Roses (a coast to coast route) and the Wolds Cycle Route NCN1. We also have a many notable cafe stops! There are a number of off-road trails on disused railway lines worth exploring, and Hull has a good network of cycle-friendly routes around the city.

We advertise our rides on our own website at: https://eastyorkshirectc.org.uk/sunday-ride-calendar/ for both Sunday AND Thursday rides.

Individual members also arrange informal rides on other days depending on availability and the weather using a WhatsApp group for communications. We are building our stock of rides as GPX and descriptions which are available at: https://eastyorkshirectc.org.uk/gpx-files/

Anyone who would like to cycle with East Yorkshire CTC should contact us through the link at the top of this page. Include a mobile number if you would like a more instant response. We generally prefer to have people join us on a ride or two before adding them to the Rides WhatsApp group. Call it "vetting" if you like!

Information about the group rides

We are fortunate in having an excellent range of unclassified and smaller roads in our area and rarely need to use busy routes.

Our Club will soon be coming up for it's centenary. Most of our regular riders are now retired, giving us flexibility to adjust to the weather. Some of our older riders have e-assisted bikes (Orbea and Swytch are "currently" favoured) and one pair of regular riders use a tandem (recently converted to e-assist). Our rides are typically 35 miles in the winter and up to around 60 in the warmer months with longer days, and always include a lunch/cafe stop. Some riders bring a flask and pack-up.

No-one is left behind and through the Covid times we managed to get out either in distanced, small groups of up to 6 (when allowed), or as household/bubbled groups.

Our rides are typically on Sundays and Thursdays, but many of the retired members go out on other days as well. 

We arrange a handful of overnight/away rides using Youth Hostels or (in Holland) hotels. Some of our local rides are "Motor Assisted" where we will drive out to a start location to begin the ride on roads less familiar to us. With a route advertised in advance, some riders may choose to join us en route, or at the pre-agreed lunch stop, depending on their home location. The club has the capacity to share transport and carry members' bikes for them.

If you would like to ride with us we hope you will find a warm welcome.
