The Cambridge Cycling Club

Also known as Cambridge Town and County Cycling Club, has options for all riding levels, from beginner to racers. Routes differ in length depending on skill level. There is only one requirement for membership: the love and admiration of cycling. The club hosts beginner runs of about 40 miles on the first Saturday of each of the summer months. For non-members looking to get involved, summer night time trials is a great place to start.  {and click here to protect your head from the sun with Tour headsweats!]
