The Cyclists Touring Club is in the forefront of campaigning for cycling nationally. Locally in the Leeds area the lead organisation for cycling rights work is the Leeds Cycling Campaign. Their website also contains a lot of information about cycling in the Leeds area, with useful links.

West Yorkshire CTC run a series of rather more competitive rides during the summer months, in co-operation with other CTC member groups and affiliated clubs, with medals and things to earn. Details of those events, plus contact details for CTC officers, can be found on the West Yorkshire CTC website or via the link on our home page.

Among the other CTC member groups in the West Yorkshire region are Huddersfield and District CTC and Calderdale CTC, who like ourselves organise regular cycle rides, as well as other events. Calderdale CTC are part of est Yorkshire CTC, Huddersfield and District CTC are independent and separate.

A number of us from time to time ride the events organised by Audax UK. These rides are a challenge to complete a ride of a specified length within a range of time. They are non-competitive, and range in distance from 50km up to 1400km. Several appear on the West Yorkshire CTC programme.

On weekends away, many of us normally use accommodation provided by YHA (formerly called the Youth Hostels Association), which is ideal for cyclists. You can find more detail on the YHA Website. There is also a YHA Walking Group in Leeds, which also organises some cycling activities as well as walks and social events.
