West Yorkshire CTC Annual General Meeting will be held at 13:30 on Sunday, November 2nd 2014, at the Oddfellows Rooms, 3 Coleridge Street, Halifax, HX1 2JF. After the AGM it's hoped to have time for an informal debate about the future structure of West Yorkshire CTC, to meet our needs with the minimum of administrative overhead.

On Sunday, 5th October, there are two Audax rides from Hebden Bridge as part of the West Yorkshire CTC programme. The 100km 'Season of Mists' takes you through the Lancashire and Yorkshire pennines, with some fantastic views and classic climbs, visiting Nick of Pendle, Waddington Fell and the Forest of Bowland, returning via Widdop Moor. The 50km 'Mellow Fruitfulness' takes in some of the same country, all returning to the legendary post-event hospitality of Calderdale CTC. Time allowances are sufficiently generous to allow you to savour our fantastic countryside. Enter via the Audax UK website (on-the-line entries also accepted).

West Yorkshire CTC is a member group of CTC, the national cycling charity. Through individual member groups and other organisers in the area, we run a programme of events from spring to autumn, from social events to some of the most challenging Audax events in the country.

Within West Yorkshire, Calderdale CTC provides a full programme of rides and social events for members in that area, centred on Halifax.

In Leeds, the Leeds Cycling Campaign - an affiliated club of CTC - not only campaigns to make Leeds a better place to cycle, but also organises rides at a variety of levels, from short rides on a Saturday morning for beginners or those returning to cycling, through an intermediate group providing day rides of 30-40 miles, to a group making longer excursions, occasionally in the summer quite challenging rides. If you're in or near Leeds, and looking for a more social aspect to your cycling, we recommend joining LCC. Not only will your modest fee put you in touch with people, rides and activities locally, but help to campaign on behalf of cyclists in the city for better cycling facilities.
