Frome’s Cyclists Touring Club rides each Sunday morning, starting from outside the Cheese & Grain at 9am and aiming to return by lunchtime or early afternoon.
They have two groups that leave the Cheese and Grain, a 9am group that cycles at a steady pace (average 12mph) and a 9.15am group that cycles at a slightly quicker pace (averages 16mph).
They average between 10-15 riders per week of varying ages and abilities, and normally ride between 30 / 35 miles at an easy pace.
As their nickname suggests (CTC – Coffee and Tea-Cake Club) the most important part of the Sunday morning ride is the 11am stop, where the group rests, chat and part-take in the drinking of tea or coffee and the eating of tea cakes or something similar! They insist it must be highly calorific!
