About Us

What is the East Sussex Cyclists' Touring Club?

East Sussex Cyclists' Touring Club is a Local Group of Cycling UK - the UK's national cyclists' organisation.

The local club exists to organise rides and special events for Cycling UK members in the East Sussex Area. However, anyone may come along to try out Club riding or take part in one of our events, we simply ask that after 3 or 4 rides, if you are not already a member, then you join Cycling UK, since membership gives you third party liability insurance and free legal aid for cycle related matters - we hope you never need it, but it's good to know it's there.                                     Scroll down for more details.

The local group consists of people from a wide spectrum of backgrounds but with a common interest - cycling.  We are a touring club, not a racing one, and everyone is welcome whatever their ability or age - although we do ask younger riders - under 16 - to bring an adult along. 

We offer the opportunity to ride in company, to explore some of the less well known parts of our area, and to enable you to meet others with an interest in cycling and the outdoors.  East Sussex has several subsidiary groups - to find out more about them and their activities click here.

If you are thinking of coming out but are new to cycling or club riding it is a good idea to check with the relevant Secretary as to the suitability of a particular ride, especially if you have not done much cycling in the past.
