CTC Birthday Rides - Staffordshire
13 to 19 August 2018


This year's Birthday Rides are based at Yarnfield Training and Conference Centre, which is located three miles west of Stone, between Stafford and Stoke-on-Trent. There is easy access to the surrounding countryside, and the Centre is a perfect base for exploring Staffordshire's varied landscape and discovering its picturesque lanes and villages, as well as being close to Shropshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire

The Centre is shown on OS 1:50000 map 127, GR 865330. Staffordshire is ideal for cycle touring with rolling countryside nearby and more challenging topography in the nearby Peak District. There is also an abundance of attractions, tea rooms and country pubs to choose from, and for those with an interest in pottery and china, there is much to see in the nearby Potteries.

Local places to visit include: World of Wedgwood, Sudbury Hall and Museum of Childhood, Trentham Estate and Italian Gardens, Monkey Forest, Cannock Chase, Shugborough Hall, National Memorial Arboretum, Lichfield Cathedral, Gladstone Pottery Museum, National Brewery Centre, Biddulph Grange Gardens, Downs Banks, Emma Bridgewater Ceramics Factory and Potteries Museum.

The Centre will be the venue for indoor accommodation and meals, and campers will use the adjacent sports field. All rides will leave from the Centre, and all other events will take place on-site unless otherwise indicated

Book before 20 April 2018 for a substantial discount.
Bookings close on Friday 29 June 2018, or earlier if maximum numbers are reached.
