Here follows a section of the main CCA rides and events happening this year.

Additionally, you can view the complete Club Event Calendar.

Excludes CCA organised races, crits and competitions.

Cycle Club Run Events

Throughout the year CCA organises special rides that are separate to the organised club runs. These are rides that go further than the club runs and happen on or around the same date each year. The CCA Wells-next-to-the-sea ride normally sees at least 25+ riders. In this circumstance the large group is divided into smaller groups on the road for safety and leaves Ashwell at staggered times.
