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 are proud of 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.

The best place to see what we're doing is our  Meetup page.

Upcoming rides feature on our Meetup page and any last minute changes/details can be found there. Joining our Meetup group is free and you can then indicate whether you will be attending our ride and be able to ask questions about it.   

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

Write ups of rides back in 2016 and earlier are available in the Blog that we kept back then. Our Flickr page also contains photos from some of our past rides. 

Information about the group rides 

We are running our rides as normal.

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). 

the latest details and availability for each of our rides is best found on our Meetup page   .

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