to the CTC Kettering website. We are the local group of CTC, the
national cycling charity, covering the area of Kettering, Corby
and East Northamptonshire. We are part of CTC Northants & Milton
Keynes and there are other active groups based in Milton Keynes and
Northampton (See our Links page for details or download their rides
lists attached below).
own local rides usually start from Rothwell but we can arrange to
meet other members elsewhere
on the ride by arrangement. The events are promoted as touring
rides under the banner
of Kettering Cyclists' Touring Club and are usually quite easy paced
and certainly not races.
We aim to enjoy the countryside, with pauses for a morning break,
lunch and probably afternoon
tea at cyclist friendly cafes or pubs. Click above for our Programme of Rides. For details of our recommended refreshment places click here for a map showing Our Local Refreshment Places and scroll down to reveal those in Northamptonshire.
We are a small friendly group and we stage at
least two rides every
week, all day on Sunday and on Tuesday morning, with some additional
rides during the summer months. We also have occasional camping
and youth hostelling
weekends so plenty of variety for all types of

Hallaton: Here we go again. When the Thursday Club turned up at the Bewick tea roomon 5th December it was very definitely closed for extensive refurbishment, which looks as though it may take most of the winter. This applies to both the pub & the tea room. The closest alternative is Cafe Nevill in Medbourne, very nice but pricey. Who's to know that the Bewicke won't go up market when it re-opens. Keep in touch via this website.
