CTC Lothians and Borders
Supporting cycling across Scotland and the UK
Welcome to Lothians and Borders CTC
We are a regional section of the national charity whose purpose is to encourage and support cycling across Scotland and the UK. Whether you’re new to cycling, an experienced rider or indeed a current member, this is the site for you to gain access to up to date information on the club’s activities.
The club offers a variety of opportunities to get out on organised cycle rides with an emphasis on participation as part of a group and consideration for all riders. Rides take place all year round and include short after-work summer rides, 20-mile Sunday rides, and longer 40 to 80 mile mid-week and week-end rides. Whatever bike you have – tourer, MTB or hybrid, you’ll be welcome on our rides; we just ask that your bike is roadworthy and, for the benefit of other riders in the group, fitted with mudguards.
“I joined the CTC back in the late seventies on the basis that it gave me privileged access to train travel at that time. Some thirty five years on and with a few enforced breaks through the pleasures of raising a family and the stress of a working career, I continue to be an active member. A regular participant on Wednesday rides and whenever possible the Saturday slightly shorter outings, I’m currently averaging around 130 miles plus a week. It’s always a great day out on which to catch up with old friends and to encourage new participants eager to find out what the CTC is about.”
