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 and newcomers as well. Club members also compete in open time trial events, and other local club events.
Note that for the 2022 season, we will be running events 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.
We road race
Club members take part in road racing events in the South East, which are held on roads or closed circuits.
We MTB race
Club members take part in mountain bike racing on an occasional basis, although we do not organise MTB rides.
We ride Sportives, reliability trials and Audax events
We take part individually, or as a club, in local cycling events.
We take part in track racing sessions.
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.
