The Directors of CTC Cycling Holidays & Tours Ltd and the Cycling UK Board sadly announce that after 20 years and hundreds of tours across the globe, Cycling UK’s subsidiary trading arm, CTC Cycling Holidays & Tours Ltd (CTC H&T) will cease trading in October 2021. CTC H&T will be honouring holiday bookings already made and will run the remaining tours this season where the minimum participant levels have been reached.
It has not been an easy decision, but the ongoing holiday travel chaos caused by the Covid pandemic has forced everyone in the travel industry to take a hard look at their operating model and viability in an uncertain future. CTC Cycling Holidays & Tours has had to cancel the bulk of this and last year’s tours and to weather the subsequent loss of income.
In response, Cycling UK trustees alongside the CTC H&T directors have looked at a variety of options to enable the company to continue, that are both compatible with charitable aims and, crucially, what the market demands and the resource required in order to deliver it.
Cycling UK’s CTC H&T model was unique in being set up to provide a framework for cycle tours, designed and led by volunteers for other members and at one time it boasted thousands of participants.
