Page updated - 5th February 2015


West Yorkshire CTC, in conjunction with Huddersfield and District CTC, organise a program of events each year, running from March until October, with rides from 16 miles to 600km. Standard Rides and Audax events offer the opportunity to complete non-competitive touring rides over a variety of distances inside usually generous time limits. Audax events are organised under the rules of Audax United Kingdom, the long distance cyclists’ association, and are part of a national calendar, attracting riders from all over the country. Standard Rides are local events offering a little more informality but with a similar sense of achievement.

The programme of events for 2015 is currently under development, but some Audax rides in particular have already been arranged.

Events organised by West Yorkshire CTC are shown with a blue background, those organised by Huddersfield and District CTC with a pink background, and those by Otley CC with a light green background.

For more details of West Yorkshire CTC events, including route sheets, see the group's website . Most West Yorkshire CTC Audax events can also be ridden as 'Permanents', i.e. they are available to ride all the year round at your convenience. For most enjoyment, of course, it is better to ride with others on the day of the event.
