Britain's biggest cycling organisation, the CTC is offering special gift membership packages from just £12 throughout December and January. Gift membership includes:
£10m third party insurance
Bi-monthly award winning magazine ‘Cycle’
Discounts on bikes and cycling products
Organised group rides, events and holidays
Local and national cycling campaigns
Legal advice (which is "unrivalled" says the CTC)
Technical and touring advice
AND… you get a free Buff.
Okay, if you wanted the Buff for Christmas you had to order the package by 16th December… (sorry about that, our fault) but even if you order now the Buff will still be yours, and it's always nice to get an extra present in grey old January when you need cheering up anyway.
If you want to splash a bit more cash you might also want to check out the CTC limited edition wool jersey's for £75, we had a look at one at the Cycle Show and it is a very nice bit of kit indeed… We'd be very happy to get one of these for Chrimbo, even if it didn't arrive for the big day itself. The orderline is open on 0845 50 50 505.

He launched his first cycling website - the Cycling Plus Forum at the turn of the century. In 2006 he left C+ to head up the launch team for Bike Radar which he edited until 2008, when he co-launched the multi-award winning road.cc - finally handing on the reins in 2021 to Jack Sexty. His favourite ride is his ‘commute’ - which he does most days inc weekends and he’s been cycle-commuting since 1994. His favourite bikes are titanium and have disc brakes, though he'd like to own a carbon bike one day.
