If the bike rides above seem quite a long way, not to worry as in Essex we are very fortunate to have an energetic CTC Area Officer in Richard Monk. Richard organises shorter rides aimed at new and returning cyclists and they are a great introduction to group riding.

The CTC and its Essex Member Group

The CTC (Cyclists' Touring Club) is the national cycling charity, catering for more than 70,000 members nationwide, and 1,600 across Essex. The Essex CTC Member Group has four subsidiary Member Groups, or "sections": Chelmsford City, Colchester (Informal), Havering, and South East Essex.

The CTC provides its members with a range of services appropriate for modern day cycling such as third party insurance, legal advice and discounts on all kinds of cycling and general outdoor activities. The Club also campaigns for cycling issues both at local level and in discussion with government.

The Essex branch of the CTC originated as a 'District Association' and was established in 1927. Since then the importance of cycling as a mode of travel has changed and our towns and cities are full of cars. But cycling is far from finished. In fact it's a genuinely practical means of active travel as well as a fabulous leisure activity that is the perfect way of discovering the beauty of the Essex countryside.

We hope you will join us and share in our passion for cycling and together experience the joy it can bring to our lives.
