We are a Member Group of Cycling UK and most of our activities are run for Cycling UK members.  We welcome guests who can ride with us a few times before deciding if we’re the club for them, we can then arrange a free no obligation three month trial membership which will include many of the benefits of full membership.

Cycling UK membership has many benefits, including six issues a year of Cycle magazine, third party insurance and legal helpline, as well as various discounts and being able to ride with any of the nationwide Member Groups.

Full membership costs £43 a year or £3.59 a month with other rates for seniors, households, students and unwaged.


You may have seen our bright blue and yellow jerseys and other club kit.  This is ordered periodically when there’s the demand.  If you’re interested in wearing our club kit, please let us know and we’ll be in touch when we’re next ordering.

In conjunction with Mercia CC we produce a quarterly magazine, full of news, ride reports, touring tales, maybe a joke or two, reviews and photos.  Subscriptions are £6 a year or £1.50 an issue including postage.  Please contact us if you’d like to subscribe or advertise or have something  included.

Our Best All Rounder competition has been running for many years with a trophy and small prize presented annually.

We are at heart a non-competitive cycling club and the events that make up this competition are more about fun and participation than winners.

The events and other activities that make up the BAR are decided each year at the AGM, some are regular features others less so or unique.

Points in 2017 are awarded for:

  • Hill Climb and Freewheel competition – Completed
  • Photo Competition – Completed
  • Awheel magazine contribution
  • Rough Stuff Ride –
  • Standard Rides –
  • Moira Audax –

Further details will be found on the rides pages.

Cycling in the Peak District survey

I am contacting you as I am carrying out some research into cycling in the Peak District National Park [PDNP], as part of my PhD. 

The questionnaire asks about motivations for cycling, types of cycling, and also some personal information, in order to help identify different groups of cyclists. The questionnaire should only take around 10 minutes to complete, and the PDNP fully endorse my research. Please be assured that any information provided will be kept strictly confidential. 

Please follow the link: http://bit.ly/PDNPQuestionnaire

 I’m a keen cyclist myself, and a member of Nottingham Clarion Cycling Club, so it would be great if some CTC Derby & Burton members could participate in the survey.

Beaumanor Hall Camping Rally 26-29 May 2017

The East Midlands Cyclists’ Touring Club Rally is held annually at Beaumanor Hall, to the south of Loughborough, during the Spring Bank Holiday (Fri 26th – Mon 29th May). The campsite is open from 4pm Friday afternoon to the bank holiday Monday afternoon. There are usually two rides organised each day from Saturday to Monday (depending on volunteers) for those who do not want to do their own thing : one of about 25 miles which is at a sedate pace and another of about 50 miles to places of local interest.

Some campers choose to devise their own rides or just relax.

The site facilities not only have the usual toilets, showers and three sinks for dish washing, but also the use of a room with a table and chairs, a large larder fridge, a chest freezer, electric kettle and two electric toasters (one is for glutton free bread). The room is useful for charging mobile phones, sat navs, etc.

There are two drying rooms available which can be useful for those lightweight tourers who wish to wash their Lycra and get it dry over night!

There are socials on site during the Saturday and Sunday evening at which a film is shown and nibbles, biscuits, tea and coffee are provided during the intermission.

You can book via the following site https://sites.google.com/site/beaumanorcyclerally/, or just google Beaumanor Cycling Rally. Alternatively just ring me (leave a message if no answer) and I can send you a form, or book you in over the phone.
