General Information

The CTA is the premier cycle touring club in Western Australia. We offer recreational cycling with a focus on cycle touring. Touring is about enjoying the journey with others and experiencing the simple pleasures of multi-day cycle touring and camping in good company!

The CTA’s prime touring event of the year is the ‘On Your Bike’ (OYB) tour. This week long tour is fully supported and held in spring. Details on this year’s (or the next) OYB tour can be found here.

The Club also organises a number of weekend, long weekend or multi-day tours during the year. This gives people new to cycle touring an opportunity to try it out on a short event. It also provides a number of tours each year for those more familiar with touring. The full list of tours for the year can be found here. Information on past tours can be found here.

Documents providing useful information on touring can be found at the links below:
