We are a cycling club based in Ashford, Kent in the south of England, with a history that stretches back 120 years. If you are interested in taking part in cycle sport and live around Ashford, you need to join our club.
We run a series of 10 mile time trials on Wednesday evenings throughout the summer months. These are open to members of other clubs and newcomers as well. Club members also compete in open time trial events, and other local club events.
Our time trials are run under the TLI organisation and all riders must be members of TLI to race.
Every Sunday morning we meet at 8.00am (Summer) 9.00am (Winter) for a circular ride of about 50 miles in the local area. This is a moderate to fast paced ride on a "turn up and go" basis. Please check with club members for summer/winter change over dates.
(Summer schedule starts April, 2 weeks after the start of BST. Winter schedule start October, 2 weeks before end of BST).
Club members take part in road racing events in the South East, which are held on roads or closed circuits.
Club members take part in mountain bike racing on an occasional basis, although we do not organise MTB rides.
We take part individually, or as a club, in local cycling events.
Members have, in the past, been involved in track racing meetings at Herne Hill velodrome.
During the winter months we organise turbo/roller sessions during the dark evenings, or virtually in on-line groups.
