Based in Rainham Kent, we are a club for any cyclist, we cater for many disciplines for sport & recreation, and have an members aged from under 4 to over 80.

So take a look at the site, see what our members are up to, and learn how to get started. We hope to see you soon!
YOver the winter, we'll be hosting weekly training sessions to keep your fitness up until riding outside becomes more enticing again. We'll even be able to help you build your strength and speed, so that you can (figuratively) hit the ground running when the season starts in spring.
Sessions are held every Wednesday at the Howard School sports hall in Rainham. Sign on from 7:30pm, with the session starting at 8pm prompt. Sessions are open to absolutely everyone, young or old, member or non-member, racing snake or weekend rider.

The first weekend in August was certainly a big one. Not only did we have 8 riders taking part in the annual Ride London 100 sportive, but we also held a very successful Track session at the London Olympic Velodrome at LeeValley.
