How to join one of our rides

These are the steps you should follow if you want to join any of our rides:

  1. Look for a ride you'd like to join. Forthcoming rides appear in the sidebar of most pages on this site. Click any ride for more detail. See below for some other ways to be notified of rides.
  2. If a ride requires you to book a place, you can email the ride leader to ask to join - there's a 'Contact us about this event' link on every ride page.
  3. The ride leader uses email to invite you to join the ride, and updates the ride page with a list of invitees. Please do not join a ride that requires booking unless you have received an invite or your name appears in the list on the ride page.

If you are unsure about which ride to join, you can:

  • Contact the leader of any ride via the ride page.
  • Contact us for general advice and guidance about any of our rides.

To find out about our rides, you can:

  • If you are a PCTC member, register for email notifications of rides via your profile.
  • Review the list of forthcoming rides in the side bar of most pages in this site - including this one.
  • Review the full list of rides shown under the 'Types of ride menu'
  • Use one or more of our electronic feeds:


  • Read the ride details (including the 'About... ' section) carefully and only ask to join rides that suit your ability.
  • If you are invited to join a ride, do your best to be there on time; unless you have a good reason for not turning up, you might find it difficult to join future rides
  • Do not attempt to join a ride that requires booking unless invited
