We are a very friendly mid-week social cycling club based in SE London/West Kent. We ride every Wednesday, meeting at about 10..00am for elevenses at one of our four meeting venues organised on a rota basis. Most members ride to the morning meet..
The club rides depart at 10.30am and we currently run four groups. All group rides aim to arrive at their pre-arranged pub destinations for lunch at around 1pm. The pubs we visit are selected for being both cyclist friendly and providing a good value lunch menu.
With four groups, we cater for a broad range of fitness levels, including the ride home, it is not unusual for our fitter members to have covered distances of 60 to 90 miles, others might travel only 15 miles. Run lists including meeting venue and pub destination details are published on this website. Our current membership is approx 130 with up to 50 riders (depending on the weather) turning out for each ride. As a mid-week club, members are usually retired, semi-retired or WFH.
A smaller group of our fitter riders also meet on Saturdays.
In addition to our weekly rides, there are group holidays in the UK and Europe. In 2019 a group of 34 members went to Dordrecht in Holland and had a great time. In September 2021 a similar sized group is booked for a 4 night holiday on the Isle of Wight. In 2022 we are hoping to be able to return to Holland.
If you are interested in riding with us contact us by using the link at the bottom of the page or just turn up on a Wednesday. We will be very happy to help find the right group whether you are new to group cycling or an experienced cyclist.
Since “Freedom Day” on July 19th the club is starting to assemble for morning coffee in a more normal fashion.
