Tours and Events

CTC Swale organises tours over the summer and supports the local charities. These events and the tours especially, are very popular amoungst our members and eagerly waited for, and chance for the Club to be proud of its roots and explore new areas outside of Kent and abroad.

This year calendar includes:

Jez's ride to Barnstable.

The 'Journey in Between Tour'.

Join Jez Clinch on this five day tour in June 2017 from Sittingbourne to Barnstable.
Jez has carefully checked the route and the overnight stops and has ridden it himself already.
The route finishes on a large section of the Tarka Trail. The Trail is very easy cycling. This disused railway line conversion is traffic free and surfaced throughout, along estuary sides and through wooded valleys. We join it at Meeth and will be cycling approx. 26 miles on the trail.
It is expected that riders will make their own overnight bookings and return travel arrangements. Bookings for the last night at the Cresta Guest House are best given to Jez to book en masse in January as we may be able to book the whole guest house together.
Some assistance with the return journey may be available from fellow riders dependant of numbers. There are other options such as trains and one way van hire.
Any other information you may require Jez will be happy to assist with on request.
Please let Jez know if you are able to come before the first of January.
