Bury CTC is an Informal Group belonging to Manchester & District CTC (formerly Manchester DA) - part of the national Cyclists' Touring Club (now known as Cycling UK) which encompasses six Groups or Sections around Greater Manchester and beyond including neighbours Bolton and Rochdale.
Bury is situated about 9 miles (14.5 km) north of Manchester city centre. Great cycling can be had in areas within easy reach, such as the Ribble Valley, Forest of Bowland, the Lancashire Plain, Fylde, Calder Valley, South Pennines, and the lanes of Cheshire.
Our main activity is a regular programme of Sunday bike rides covering a distance of between 40 and 100 miles depending on the season and destination. We have two groups ‘A’ and ‘B’. ‘A’ group rides are for the fitter rider, ‘B’ group rides are at an easier pace. If you are a relative beginner, ‘B’ group rides are recommended.
Experience has shown us that it is best that you don't join one of our club runs until you have completed a ride of at least 30 miles beforehand. Once you have attained this level of fitness you will get much more pleasure out of group riding. There is no charge and you do not have to join the CTC until you have had a few rides with us. Only after this do you need to become a member. Click here for how to join.
SUNDAY BIKE RIDES
We have riders out on a Sunday of all age groups - but mostly male, mostly old. However like most cycling clubs we particularly want to make welcome more younger cyclists and lady members. Whatever your age, if you enjoy cycling, have already ridden 30 miles, and want to meet with other like-minded people, you are welcome to join us on any club run. We meet outside the Wilko store at the east end of The Rock in Bury town centre.
Every quarter we publish our list of forthcoming rides. Click here to see the Runs List.
Also we hold a various programme of activities to promote cycling. These include camping wholesale promotional products, youth hostel weekends, cycling holidays and occasional invitation rides.
CAFES AND TEAROOMS
As all our rides involve cafe stops we have included a list of cafes and tearooms visited. Click the link top left to see them. Please inform us of any updates, changes or additions.
Every quarter we hold our Club meeting at The Trackside Pub, Bury where the runs list is planned and any issues raised over the past months are discussed. Everybody is welcome to attend, please come along. Click here for the date and venue of our next meeting and to view minutes of past meetings and to view the Secretary's reports.

A few weeks ago, I got an interesting question from someone who works at HODINKEE that was so straightforward that it left me a little floored. The question was when I’m looking at a watch, what am I looking at – in other words, how do I evaluate a fake watch that I’m going to … Continue reading “How To Look At A Watch: A Purely Personal Take”

A few weeks ago, ZF released a couple of new Hublot Big Bang Unico watches, and this yellow model is one of them. I didn’t like the Hublot Unico before because it was too big and the case was too thick and the whole watch felt heavy, but when I saw this yellow watch a … Continue reading “The best Hublot Unico yellow ceramic watch”
