The 2013 CTC Birthday Rides were held at Yarnfiled Park, North Staffordshire. The rides are held in a different region each year and are run by CTC Holidays with help from the local member group volunteers.
This year around 460 members attended to celebrate the 135th birthday of the National CTC.
The event was based at Yarnfield Park the British Telecom Training and Conference Centre. Members could stay in the en-suite accommodation with breakfast and evening meals provided, or could caravan or camp in the grounds either self catering or purchasing meals.

Detailed ride sheets were available for a wide range of routes along with a gazetter listing numerous places of interest in the surrounding area.
Entertainments were laid on each evening including talks, a quiz night, Jazz band and barn dance.
