Ride Leaders Wanted for Cycle Queensbury

Last year Calderdale CTC helped lead 85 riders on trails around Queensbury, and if you a ride leader we would like your help on 18th May.

Join our rides - We welcome new riders

Whether you are member of the CTC or not - you are welcome to come along to any of our rides for a "taster".

  • We are an active group, organising weekly leisure rides, as well as challenge / Audax rides.
  • If you are a keen cyclist doing rides of 10-20 miles our regular rides could be for you.
  • We are not a ‘racing’ club, most of our Regular Rides are easy-going affairs where the group stays together.  
  • The pace is relaxed (around 10 mph with stops), with lots of opportunities to chat and enjoy the scenery.
  • Our rides on a Saturday or Thursday evening (summer) ride are usually between 10 and 20 miles, and especially suitable for people new to group riding.
  • On a Sunday we will set off on longer rides - a half day's cycle of around 30 miles in the winter, but enjoying a full day of up to 70 miles in the summer.

If you have got a question about our rides please contact Martin Bird, Rides organiser by emailing mrtn.bird@gmail.com

If you want something more challenging there is plenty of opportunity to enter an "audax" ride, and there is more information about these rides on our audax pages.

Find out more - use the Contact Us form to get in touch. For more information on the CTC, visit their website. If you want to know more, look at our FAQ. We also have a page and group on Facebook and we are on twitter
