Couch to Coast 2018

Challenge yourself to complete the classic Derby to Skegness cycle ride, with the support of CTC Derby and Burton.

We are providing a supported programme of rides taking new cyclists from those first pedal strokes to achieving the fantastic goal of cycling the classic 100 mile Derby to Skegness route.
Rides will commence in April, starting at about 10 miles in length and building up over the summer, culminating in the challenge ride to Skegness on 8th September

  • Open to all Cycling UK members and none members who haven’t ridden this with us before
  • Train on quiet local lanes
  • Support and encouragement every inch of the way
  • Friendly, experienced CTC cyclists to help and advise you
  • Quiet cycle-friendly route to Skegness
  • Cost – £20 including transport back to Derby for you and your bike, £5 for those not requiring the transport back.  Payment/booking not required to participate in the build up rides, you’re welcome to do a few of these before deciding.
We’ve planned a series of rides suitable for entry at any level.  All riders will need to have completed two of the longer rides and are also welcome to join any of our other rides.
