Whether you are …
- new to cycling, wanting to go a bit further, or interested in trying riding in a sociable group
- or are an experienced cyclist looking for a new Club
…then hopefully CTC Coventry have something to offer you.
Who we are
We are a group of friendly, experienced volunteer cyclists who come together to organise a variety of group rides in and around Coventry and the nearby Warwickshire countryside. We also lead group tours across the UK and regularly into Europe. In addition we get involved with or organise a wide range of off-the-bike cycling related activities
We are part of the national Cycling UK organisation and operate to the standards and guidelines they set. All our rides are led by registered Ride Leaders.
What we do
As a club we offer a range of group rides in the ‘middle range’ of recreational cycling – we are not equiped to teach cycling and we do not do the sort of speeds that a road racing club would – however within those extremities we offer a wide range of group riding opportunities and experiences from 5 miles to 100 miles !
- New Rider Introductory rides, and Improver rides
- Sunday Rides – normally three options – Short, Intermediate and Long routes, over a range of distances and speeds in the beautiful and varied local countryside
- Tuesday Social rides
- Offoad / MTB rides in parks and trail centres
- Winter Stamina-building rides.

And for the full-immersive experience we have a yearly programme of UK-based and International tours to suit a wide range of abilities and interests. These can be single centre or moving on, hotel or tenting, weekend or longer durations. We are even starting to include Offroad Tours. Tours like the ever popular Coast to Cooast and Cantii Way are regularly scheduled into the programme.

Womens Group Riding
Of particular note is the very active and welcoming ‘Womens Group’ which is a huge success factor in increasing womens participation in the club activities.

Alongside our on-the-bike activities we also take part in advocating for cycling in the Coventry and South Warwickshire area. Click here for more information on our Advocacy activities
We have a wide range of Social activities that we run each year. These range from organising the National Annual Cycling Memorial Service at Meriden through to barbeques and to having a go at track cycling at the Derby Velodrome.
A major cornerstone of the social cohesion of the Club is our popular Clubroom Programme which runs every fortnight over the winter period
We do try to do everything in a relaxed, sociable and fun way, but also we do make sure that we are well organised to make it both enjoyable and safe for you.
We try to be open to the aspirations of all cyclists across different cultures and those with additional needs, and are willing to adapt and be flexible in meeting peoples needs…and to help them grow and improve their abilities on the bike.
