West Norfolk CTC are a friendly bunch who enjoy weekly rides to all parts of Norfolk. And we know where all the best cafés are.
Our weekly ride destinations are planned three months in advance and a list is published which provides riders with a café meeting point and time. Riders can make their own way there or arrange to ride with other club members. After coffee and cake, we ride together to a lunch stop and then make our way home.
From King’s Lynn there are usually about ten or so riders who set off for the café together, where they meet up with other club members who’ve made their own way there.
We’ll always ensure that someone experienced rides at the pace of the slowest rider; we never leave anyone behind and we always help each other out no matter what the problem.
In addition to the planned rides, many members organise their own rides locally, some take part in other events and some join up with other groups around the country.
Oh, and by the way, Norfolk isn’t flat.
The CTC (Cyclists’ Touring Club) was founded in 1878 in Harrogate, North Yorkshire; a Norfolk branch was established in Norwich in 1930.
In February 1987, the West Norfolk branch was created to serve members living in the west of the county and, in April 2002, the Diss branch followed to serve those in the south. Membership numbers in Norfolk currently stand at around 900.
In 2016 the CTC was rebranded as Cycling UK. As a Cycling UK member, you can ride with any Cycling UK group. Members enjoy the benefit of third party insurance cover and discounts from many stores.
