Milton Keynes Cyclists' Touring Club

Bike - Cycle - Cycling - Ride - Park - Campbell Park Canalside

MKCTC was founded in 1878 to promote travel by bicycle and to defend cyclists’ rights.

The aim of the group is to enjoy cycling through lovely countryside with like-minded people of varying ages. Almost every Sunday throughout the year they have a planned ride, led by an experienced leader. Rides are of varying distances and at different speeds. Our rides normally take us out along country lanes and we keep well away from heavy traffic.

Easy Riders are much shorter than these rides, intended to encourage people who would like to try riding with a group.

“We are not a racing club.   If someone has a problem on a ride - mechanical or a puncture or because the ride is too difficult for them - we do not just abandon them, but stay back to assist them.”
