Alfreton Cyclists Touring Club



We are the Alfreton Member Group of the Cycling Tourists Club. We organise rides to suit all ages and abilities, including:-

Beginners Rides take place at weekends and on Wednesday mornings throughout the year, and on Thursday evenings from May to September. These are designed for those who are new to cycling.

Slow Rides take  place on Thursday mornings throughout the year, and on Thursday evenings from May to the end of August. These are designed for those who are new to cycling or riders wanting to ride at a slower speed because of illness, for instance , or returning to cycling after a break. There is usually the possibility to shorten the route and only ride for part of the day. Regular riders need to understand ,if they join the group the pace will be slow. Slow rides may be put on the programme on other times.

Day Rides are the traditional club run. A full day covering 50 - 80 miles at a moderate pace with stops for elevenses, lunch and afternoon tea. Rides take place at weekends and on Tuesdays throughout the year.

Audax Rides are enter events organised under Audax UK rules. These are non-competitive rides over distances ranging from 50 to 1400Km, to be ridden within set speed limits. Rides must be entered at least two weeks in advance. The member group also organises it own events.

Touring Rides involve an overnight stay, normally in Youth Hostels, hotels or B&B. Riders carry their luggage on their bikes. These include short weekend breaks and longer trips. We have visited a variety of destinations at home and abroad.
