How to Enter a Trip

To enter any of our cycling trips you must be a fully paid-up member of Cycling UK. This is because Phoenix-CTC is a member group of Cycling UK.

Membership of Phoenix-CTC is automatic for anyone participating in our trips; there is no form to fill in. Members can opt out of our group at any time by contacting our membership secretary.

If you are already a member of Phoenix-CTC and would like to enter a cycling trip then please contact the organiser direct.

If you are not a Phoenix-CTC member then please contact us via our page on the Cycling UK website. Please quote your Cycling UK membership no.

On some of our trips cyclists make their own hotel and ferry arrangements. The organiser will suggest hotels and ferry sailing times to use.

On other trips the organiser(s) will book the hotels and ferries, In that case please bear in mind that you’ll be part of a group of friends sharing the cost of a trip which we’re organising ourselves.

Usually on these trips, double rooms are booked for couples and twins for everyone else. All rooms have the usual ensuite facilities. If you have a preference for a room sharing partner or, if you’re a couple who prefer to have a twin room, then please let us know when you apply.

Assuming there are places available then you’ll be asked for a deposit of £50 per event, per person. Please treat the deposit as non-refundable. We will advise you of where to send your cheque when we respond to your application.

A second payment, approximately 90% of the estimated balance, usually becomes due six weeks prior to the start of an event.

The balance will be calculated shortly after the end of an event when all the bills have been paid.

If you are under 18 yrs of age then a parental consent form will need to be completed. Also, you must be accompanied by a related adult on the event.

Please read the Health & Safety Notice before you apply.
