About us

Cycling UK Peak Audax represents the Cycling UK in the Greater Manchester area.  We run club runs, Audax events, as well as other cycling activities through our subsidiary groups :-

Manchester CTC - we meet on the third Saturday of each month with a club ride exploring the Greater Manchester cycling infrastructure.  This ride is ideal if you have a folding bike as we ride between the various Metrolink termini but non-folders are also welcome.

Our next ride is on Saturday 16th March January 2024 to ride from Altrincham to Hazel Grove.  It's 33km (20 miles) and the return to Altrincham can be by train, or riding back for an additional 22km.  Meet in the cafe at Altrincham Interchange for a 10:45 start.  Our route can be found at

We hold our AGM on Sunday 7th April 2024.  The meeting starts at 10:30 and we'll then go for a ride to Styal, Alderley Edge and Peover.

There are more details of this, and subsequent monthly rides, at

We are also holding our longstanding event, the Beard Cup hill climb on the Sunday 10th September.  You can compete in either the open category or as a tourist (mudguards, saddlebag etc required!).  Or just come along and cheer, as well as joining us at the event HQ, Diggle Brass Band Club for a pie and a pint (gosh, how northern does that sound?)

Peak Audax CTC - our Audax rides start from various locations in the Manchester area, mainly Cheadle, Marple and Poynton.  See our Calendar of events and sign up for a terrific day out (and some nights out!).  In addition, we have a wide range of other Permanently available rides which you can undertake anytime you please.  From 50km through to 600km, fairly flat or into the hills, there is almost certainly bound to be a ride that you'll enjoy.  There is even one that climbs Werneth Low using all 7 of the possible routes.

Bury CTC - meet Sundays on The Rock, Bury.

Rochdale CTC - meet Saturdays and Sundays outside Rochdale Leisure Centre 9:30 - introductory rides on the first Saturday of the month (9:30 from Rochdale Leisure Centre)

West Manchester CTC - meet on Sundays at 11am in Agden

We also have friends in other Cycling Clubs in the Manchester Area who will also welcome Cycling UK members, so by all means get in touch and see what they get up to.
