We're about cycling not bureaucracy, so no long meetings! We're mainly about road riding but some of our guys ride mountain bikes, and some compete in triathlons. We are multi-ability so not just for the fast but if you are quick we'll try to challenge you. If you're not quick yet we'll help and look after you. And maybe make you quicker!


We also have a monthly social night at a pub in Eltham, which everyone is welcome to attend.  It's definitely not a meeting, although we do talk about future rides.

RIDES

We aim to have two rides every Sunday: an intermediate ride and an advanced. Most of our rides include a cafe stop for refuelling.


All of our rides are led by a 'Ride Captain' who aims to set a pace that all riders can cope with. We'll try our best not to drop or lose you, we'll wait at junctions and at the top of hills and we stop for and assist with any mechanical problems (if we can!).


Please check our Facebook and Twitter for the latest information on rides.

Intermediate: up to 35 miles at an average speed of around 12-13 mph, depending on the terrain. These rides have shorter mileage,  and less aggressive climbing. 


Advanced: often 40+ miles with hilly going and an average speed of up to 15 mph. These are quicker and hillier, and may include one or more local Category 4 hill.


Social: once every six weeks or so, we run a more leisurely whole club ride to a cafe stop. These are very popular and provide more of an opportunity for chatting.
