CTC Two Mills

CTC Two Mills group organise full day cycle rides every Sunday, usually leaving from the famous Eureka Cyclists café on the A540 (Wirral) at 10am. Take a look at our 2014 rides programme to see where we are going next year - beyond Chester into the lanes of Cheshire, Wrexham and occasionally the hillier parts of North Wales as well as gentler stretches on the Wirral. We want as many people as possible to enjoy cycling. We are a friendly, mixed group, often with 15 or more riders out for the day - why not join us?

We cycle mostly on surfaced roads at an average speed of 10-12 miles per hour - but speeds and surfaces do vary. We arrange gentler routes with plenty of sight-seeing, eating and drinking. There will be one or two car-assisted rides during the year so that we can cycle further afield. We have members who like the challenge of the longer distance rides offered through Audax UK. We organise occasional weekends away and some of us cycle-tour, moving-on with lightweight kit carried on the bike. We also camp at cycle rallies and often join the popular Semaine Federale in France. Click here to sample a flavour of our recent rides.

You don't need to be super fit. Just make sure that your bike is roadworthy. Bring a spare inner tube, pump and tools in case of a puncture. It's a good idea to carry a drink and maybe waterproofs if we are out all day. We will stop for lunch at a café or a pub where there is usually somewhere suitable close by for those who prefer to bring their own sandwiches. We do try to keep a reasonable pace and stay together as a group. No-one will be left behind especially not newcomers. Our rides are led by experienced volunteers.

From early May to September, the Tuesday Evening Cyclists meet every week leaving from the old station in Hadlow Road, Willaston at 7.15pm. These are very popular rides whatever your level of cycling. We usually divide into 3 or 4 differently paced groups and destinations but we meet back together at the end of evening in the pub. Get in touch with who can tell you more.
Wirral Bicycle Belles offer short, easy-paced cycle rides just for women. Meet for 10am usually on the last Saturday morning of each month in front of the railway station at Greendale Road, Port Sunlight, CH62 4XB. We'll ride a circuit of perhaps 15 miles with a café stop midway returning about lunchtime. or mobile/text/voicemail 0771 928 2243. Have a look at our Bicycle Belles Blog.
