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

Sevenoaks Scenic Ride
Saturday, 20 December 2014, 09:25 @ Bromley South Station forecourt

Meet up at 09:25 on Bromley South Station Forecourt for the 09:44 direct service to Sevenoaks - ETA 10:13 . Planned ride start time from the station is 10:30

This is a very pleasant ride that takes us through very quiet lanes ( for the most part ) , and passes the very distinctive Penshurst Place , seat of the Sydney family . I plan for us to lunch at the Rock in Chiddingstone Hoath

The ride will be about 30 unhurried miles, there are some hills (it is the Sevenoaks area after all) ...but you can "spin" your way to the top of them.

GPX route file available on request.

Post ride drink - The Halfway House - just down the road from the station.

Snow or ice conditions will result in ride cancellation please check back on the day for any updates  ...let's hope this winter is as mild as last year's!

View Tube Loop
Saturday, 03 January 2015, 10:00 @ Bromley South Station forecourt

In December we explored this route and found it to be a nice day out. The first part has a few hills as we go through Sundridge Mottingham and Avery Hill. Welling up to Thamesmead is fairly flat and then there is the nice downhill stretch into Abbey Wood. The section from the north side of the Woolwich Ferry along the Greenway is good but the second part back to the cable car needs some more work; the return to Bromley South is the usual flat route back down the Waterlink Way.

This will make an interesting ride particularly as we go through the ruin of Lesnes Abbey set in beautiful grounds south of Abbey Wood and then through Thamesmead. The Olympic Park abuts the Westfield Shopping Centre so the prospect of mad shoppers hunting for bargains is also a probability.

If you have over indulged during the festive season then this is the ride for you.

C.43 miles at c.10 mph
