CTC Northampton

Welcome to CTC Northampton - part of Cycling UK


We are pleased to announce that we will be starting our regular rides again from Saturday 29th August.

All rides will be led in accordance with COVID guidelines, having groups of a maximum of 6 riders and observing social distancing.

Any rider wishing to join a ride is required to pre-book by emailing the Ride Leader in the week prior to the ride. Places may be limited because of the small group sizes, but wherever possible, we will try to organise additional Ride Leaders to cover the numbers.

Please refer to the Rides Calendar page for Ride Leader contact details. A list of planned rides will be published there in due course.


Have you participated in the very important Northampton Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan consultation 2020 - deadline is 23rd October.

CTC Northampton is a local cycling group based in Northampton and the surrounding villages.

We are part of Cycling UK whose members enjoy benefits such as third-party insurance and access to advice on commuting, leisure riding and touring.

We aim to be an open and friendly group, and we regularly welcome new riders. If you are looking to join a group of keen and friendly cyclists of varying ages and ability then we believe this will be the club for you.

Each weekend, throughout the year, there is a programme of organised rides, ranging from short leisure rides to more challenging all day adventures exploring the many quiet country lanes that can be found in Northamptonshire and its neighbouring counties.

For more information on the current programme of local rides please take a look at our Rides Calendar.

We also recommend joining our Yahoo mailing list (see Contact Us) for up to date discussions and information.

You can also visit our active blog, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.

Hope to see you soon, CTC Northampton.

Here is what recent members have said about our group ...

"So glad I found CTC (thanks Robert P.) a fantastic group of cyclists offering very varied and interesting routes. Combined with Northampton Social Cyclists, CTC gives me fantastic ride options. I particularly like the fact that although it's an extremely well run organisation it doesn't seem to take itself too serious and manages to maintain a fun element. May you go from strength to strength and I look forward to many more rides with you."

"Thank you so much guys, yesterday was amazing made even better by great bunch of guys, I was letting my wife about it when I got home, but I look forward to the next ride."
