South West London
Welcome to CTC South West London
We have about 150 members of all ages and provide cycle rides into Surrey, Kent and surrounding counties. We are a very active club and welcome new members on our rides. Visit our website to learn more about our activities, through links to our rides programme, our newsletter (The Sou'Wester), and the informative and often witty ride reports, complete with maps and photos, on our blogs.
We are made up of three subgroups:
These Saturday rides are short and easy paced for new and returning cyclists of any age. Note that children must be accompanied. Experienced members ensure that no one is left behind. In summer some rides are longer perhaps even to the coast.
Cheam and Morden
These Sunday rides are usually between 40 and 60 miles but may be longer in summer. They are all day, returning home in late afternoon.
Riders meet on Wednesdays at 'elevenses' where they subdivide into three groups: 'A', 'B' and 'C' for an 11 o'clock departure. Sometimes the 'C' group uses a separate venue; their rides may be 15 to 20 miles whereas other groups go further, 40, 50 miles or more.
Perhaps you fancy 3000 feet of climbing in just 30+ miles? Well that's our Hilly 50K; keep an eye on our Main Events listing for the next event, usually on the first Saturday in March.
Further from home
Every year a contingent of riders from our various groups attends the very popular CUK Birthday Rides.
And at around the end of June we always field a big group to attend the Dieppe Raid to ride the 30, 60, 100, or 140 kilometre route on the Sunday.
