Unfortunately all club activities are suspended until the virus abates.

We are a very friendly mid-week social cycling club based in SE London/West Kent. We ride every Wednesday, meeting at about 10.30am for elevenses at one of our five meeting venues organised on a rota basis. Most members ride to the elevenses meet.

The club rides depart at 11am and we currently run five groups. All group rides aim to arrive at their pre-arranged pub destinations for lunch before 1pm. The pubs we visit are selected for being both cyclist friendly and providing a good value lunch menu.

With five 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 50 to 60 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 140 with up to 70 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. Similar trips were being planned for 2020/2021 but have been postponed until the virus abates.

If you are interested in riding with us please send us a note (see “Contact Us” at the foot of this page) or alternatively just turn up on a Wednesday and we will be very happy to help find the right group for you whether you are new to group cycling or an experienced cyclist
