Ashford Wheelers Cycling Club


AWCC on the move

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.

What we do:

We race Time Trials

We run a series of 10 mile time trials on Wednesday evenings throughout the summer months. These are open to members of other clubs by arrangement, 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.

We ride

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.

For 2024 we will running a Saturday moderate ride from Victoria Park, from the beginning of April. Timing as above.
