Members of the Leeds Group
ride mostly with the Leeds Cycling Campaign, which offers
social rides ranging from short rides for those new to cycling, or
recovering fitness, through to long Sunday rides in the summer months.
CTC West Yorkshire would be very keen to help any group in the Leeds
area which wanted to organise events etc., and can offer support,
advice and some financial support to get things going. Contact the
Secretary (details in 'Cycle' magazine) or through local contacts on
the 'contacts' page.
Here is a selection of of coming events which may be of interest to
local riders. It's not intended to be exhaustive, and represents rides in which
members of the former Leeds Section are likely to take part. In the panel on
the left you can find links to some of the rides lists for local activities organised
by local clubs and organisations, including CTC West Yorkshire's own programme.
The Annual General Meeting of West Yorkshire CTC will be held at 13:30 on Sunday 3 November 2013 at The Oddfellows Rooms, Coleridge Street, Halifax. All members are, of course, welcome to attend: we'd be delighted to see you.
The Leeds Cycling Campaign (LCC) have a ride on most Sundays, starting from a selection of points around the city. These vary in length, sometimes an 'intermediate' distance of 30-40 miles, sometimes longer.
The next ride from the Leeds Cycling Campaign is on Sunday 27th October, to Selby, starting from Moortown Co-op at 9:00. This will be around 58 miles.
See the separate page about LCC rides, or visit their website for details of rides, as well as the rest of their programme and ride reports.
Maybe you're relatively new to cycling, or returning after a long
break, or simply don't want more than a pleasant social potter? Well,
here's a suggestion for people who want a shorter, perhaps slower ride.
Leeds Cycling Campaign also have a weekly ride on Saturdays.
Meet at Roundhay Park car park (the old Tram Terminus), at the junction
of Lidgett Park Road and Prince's Avenue, at 10:15 for a 10:30 start.
The rides will be no more than 15 miles, at the pace of the slowest
rider. If you need more detail, contact Allan on 0113 262 2328 (evenings and weekends)
Leeds group is registered as an informal CTC group under the aegis
of CTC West Yorkshire District Association (hence the title above).
