About us 

We are a group of CTC members living in the north of West Sussex - ranging from Rudgwick in the west to East Grinstead in the east. We enjoy riding through the wonderful countryside around us and have grouped together in order to provide a programme of rides throughout the year. Our rides are generally unhurried and are planned at an average speed of about 10 mph, thus making them suitable for most riders. We provide a friendly welcome to fellow cyclists on our rides whether CTC members or not, pride ourselves on our knowledge of the local routes and the fact that we never leave anyone behind.

Further down this page you can find more information about us and details of forthcoming rides. This list also appears in the West Sussex CTC Member Group publication "The Pedaller" but the version on this page should always be viewed as the definitive one as it is more up to date.

Upcoming rides feature on our Meetup page.    Write ups of rides back in 2016 and earlier are available in our Blog

Our Facebook Group is a place in which we post various photos and chitter-chatter. Click on: Horsham and Crawley CTC 

Our Flickr page also contains photos from our rides.

Anyone and Everyone is welcome to take part in our rides, but we would expect people to join our Group after two or three rides in order to make a contribution towards our costs (membership is only £5 a year). 

n.b. as we are a CTC Member Group, individual CTC membership is necessary to fully benefit from the insurance and discounts available.
