About us

Welcome to CTC Glasgow

We are the CTC/Cycling UK member group that covers the greater Glasgow area and are committed to organising cycle rides and promoting cycling both within Glasgow and the neighbouring west of Scotland. Our group was founded in 1902 and we currently have around 1000 members. Our vision is of a healthier, happier world through cycle participation. We want everyone to be able to cycle safely and enjoyably.

Please join us for a ride

We run a regular rides on Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday, often from the Bike Hub in Alexandra Park and other locations. We try to encourage anyone who wishes to cycle with us but most of our rides require a basic level of fitness. Anyone unsure of ability levels should contact the ride leader directly through the Meetup site. The rides sometimes change or are cancelled due to weather conditions so please check the our Meetup group Meetup Group prior to attending a run. You can download our rides list for January to June 2024 but please check the Meetup site for confirmation of rides and the most up to date ride information.

Ride insurance and safety

All rides are covered by 3rd party group insurance which is why we require a contact number at the start of the ride. Most rides are around 10-13mph with the longer rides being at the faster end. Non-members can attend 3 rides for free after which we would encourage them to join Cycling UK. As well as group activities, membership provides third party insurance.If you have never ridden with us or are new to group riding we would ask that you read our ride safety guidelines at Ride Safety Guidelines.
