About Kings Hill Wheelers

Kings Hill Wheelers CC was formed in 2017 with the purpose of providing social rides and cycling activities, for cyclists of all abilities. We currently have approximately 75 members, both male and female in a range of ages, a large majority of whom are based in Kings Hill and surrounding areas.


 We pride ourselves on our friendliness and sociability, and support a number of local charities.

Club Ride Schedule

The weekly Club Ride schedule is shown below.

Unless otherwise stated all rides start from the cul-de-sac outside David Lloyd car park, Kings Hill.

It should be noted that this is a framework for the club runs but they are flexible depending on who is riding.  Where necessary smaller sub-groups are formed on the day which helps support both faster and slower riders, and ensures that no rider is left behind.


Ride information for any of the day's rides is communicated via our KHWCC WhatsApp Info group. This will include the ride leader and the distance/route to be taken. Usually, the routes are chosen from the website Route Library.  Once you become a member you will automatically be added to our WhatsApp Info/Ride/Chat/Merchandise Groups.


Kings Hill Wheelers also have a private club on Strava and all club members who use Strava are invited to join by clicking HERE.


Guest riders are permitted 3 rides before deciding whether to become a member, and are welcomed on any of the rides below. You can submit a request for Guest rides through the Contact Form at the end  of this website. When accepted you will be added to our Whatsapp Guest rider group.

  

We would also recommend that you download a copy of our RIDE ETIQUETTE from the link at the foot of this section as you will be expected to adhere to these rules during your rides.
