Rides & Events

We arrange rides for all abilities – all our rides and other events are listed below.

Don’t forget that we also hold regular rides every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday – visit our regular rides page to find out more.

Ride Registration:
If you are thinking about joining us on a ride you are more than welcome to turn up at the specified meeting place. It would however be appreciated if you could register by emailing us at rides@bromleycyclists.org so we have the appropriate level of support on the ride.

We hope that there are a variety of rides to suite everyone, however if you have a suggestion for a ride that you would like us to arrange or would like to lead a ride but would like support with planning, organisation and a ride leader on the day we would love to hear from you please drop us a line and we will endeavour to do our best to help arrange the ride.

Depending on the type of group you are riding in, the main principle of group riding is to ride together. Attacking off the front is not a good idea, it will usually upset the more experienced riders and generally upset the discipline and pace of the group. If you get lost by shooting off ahead of your group, they will not try and find you. Sometimes there will be a long hill or section where there will be some hard riding allowed. Often there may be a sprint for a town sign, but remember to be sensible, this isn’t a race. Take your cue from the other cyclists about when this is appropriate.

If you would like further information please don’t hesitate to contact us at rides@bromleycyclists.org

Rides, Reports and Events

The Viking Trail - A Winter Ride
Saturday, 06 December 2014, 08:15 @ Bromley South station (forecourt)

Described as: One of the most attractive circular leisure cycle routes in Kent, covering 32 miles (51.4km), taking in the coast of Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate before heading inland through the surrounding villages. - See more

You can either meet the ride leader at Birchington-on-Sea where the ride will commence at 1015 hrs. or meet at Bromley South where we will take the 0839 hrs service direct to the start point. We will need to travel in groups of 3+ to take advantage of the "group saver" tickets (c. £18 return).

There will be a stop for morning coffee/tea etc.  a fish & chips / pub  lunch somewhere you could bring a picnic but be warned that there may be problems getting shelter from the elements to enjoy your own food! Hopefully we will find somewhere with a roaring log fire.

Much of this ride is on the seafront so the weather, particularly the wind, is a major consideration. You should bring and be prepared to wear layers of warm clothing. Water proofs are essential. There are no hills.

Provided you have the right clothing this will be a lovely bracing ride and there will be a great sense of achievement for all participants if the weather is nasty.

Bring lights; even if you do not require them on the ride you will need them to get home afterwards, you will require spare inner tubes and tools that fit your bicycle.

Ride leader: John Wood
