Ride With Us

West Kent Road Cycling club meet outside Wilmington Memorial Hall (96 High Rd, Dartford DA2 7DW) on Sundays.

Meet 0900 for a 0915 start

Rides are often in the region of 50 miles but we can accommodate shorter rides if you need to build up. Just let us know in advance and we will see what can be done.

Our cafe destination is published in advance allowing members to do their own thing and turn up at the cafe for a chat. Cafe stops are usually at 11.30 am.

Some members also join together for mid week rides.

 

Club Run FAQs

Do I have to be a member to come along for the Sunday Club Run?

We welcome all potential new members, so please feel free to come along as it’s a good way to find out more about the West Kent Road Club. If you like it, sign up.

Do you have other rides apart from the Sunday ride?
Yes. We often meet at various cafes during the week.  Look at the calendar for more details.

Do you meet every Sunday?

Yes, even if it’s snowing members have been known to go out. But check the calendar just in case there’s a change of plan.

I’m not local and want to drive to the ride, where can I park?
You can park your car at the meeting point, at your own risk

What sort of distance and pace can I expect on your Sunday club rides?

The distance varies according to the weather and what people feel like doing but 40-50 miles is normal. We average about 15mph.  Remember that riding with others is a lot easier than riding by yourself.

What do I need to bring?

Bring some spares like an inner tube and pump, some water and a small snack.  Also, bring some cash so if the ride stops at a café, you can get something to eat and drink.

What about insurance?

You should accept responsibility for your own conduct and safety (including the safety of your bicycle and other equipment) during Club activities. You take part in Club rides entirely at your own risk. You must have appropriate third party insurance for your own sake this can be obtained through Membership of British Cycling, LVRC or the CTC and by joining these you’re supporting cycling in this country too.

Is there a minimum age?
If you’re under 16, you must drop us an email before you come so we can discuss how things work.
