Re: Cycling UK (CTC Tours) LEJoGs 2018

My concern is rather that I might need a rest after the Cornish and Devon hills. I remember being pretty knackered after a day's ride along the coast from Barnstaple to Weston-super-Mare. Admittedly it was on an all-steel 5-speed but 40 years ago I was a lot younger. :lol: CTC Tours have considered...

Re: Cycling UK (CTC Tours) LEJoGs 2018

It's very interesting to read hughwill69's and Lollycat's comments. CTC Tour's LEJoG does not go up Cheddar Gorge (They enjoy a relatively flat day from Exeter to Weston-Super-Mare). Nor do they plough through the Forest of Bowland or go through Braemar. Whether the rest day is 'near the end' is deb...

Re: Cycling UK (CTC Tours) LEJoGs UPDATE

Yes those are fair comments. It might be better to add membership to the price of a tour and apply a reduction for members. This has been suggested several times but admin difficulties at the CUK end have seemed insurmountable. The redesign of the main website with the change from CTC to Cycling UK ...

Re: CTC Tours LEJoG May/June & September 2015 UPDATE

Ah, thanks! I must say I'm always suprised by the number of people who come back and do it again. We've now had four or five people do it three times with us, which I find amazing.
