Kings Hill Wheelers Cycling Club

Come and Join Us

 

CORONAVIRUS

Following the announcement by the PM on Monday 4th January, the national lockdown is in place from Wednesday 6th January and as a result club rides continue to be cancelled until further notice.


The Government rules state: cycling is still permitted; this should be restricted to locally; with people only in your household or support bubble; and 1 sole cycle buddy is also allowed.


We will continue to review Government advice and from cycling governing bodies and other Organisations.

 

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 50 members of a range of ages, all of whom are based in Kings Hill (near West Malling) and surrounding areas.


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


Details of regular weekly rides, Charity rides, Sportives and Recreational rides can be found in the various sections below.

Weekly 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 Ride 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 Ride  and Chat Groups.


Kings Hill Wheelers have a private club on Strava and all club members who use Strava are encouraged 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. Please use the Contact Form at the end  of the website to advise that you will be joining so the ride leader is aware.

  

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.

 

Wednesday Rides

9.15 am start

35-45 miles, medium pace (14-16 mph)


These rides typically start from outside the Kings Hill Control Tower Costa, rather than David Lloyd. They can sometimes comprise of a mid-ride coffee stop, or a coffee stop at the end of the ride. On occasion these rides are extended, and could comprise of an all-day 100-mile ride to the Coast, or a visit to a local Vineyard!


See the weekly WhatsApp communications for details.

Saturday Rides

From March 2021 the club aims to offer 2 Saturday rides as follows -


Short Distance

7.30am start(8am in the winter, darker months)

30-35 miles, medium to fast pace(15-18mph)


Medium Distance

08.00 start

45 - 60 miles, medium to fast pace(15-17mph)


The Saturday rides are usually non-stop rides, with an optional coffee stop at the end of the ride in either Kings Hill or occasionally West Malling.

Occasionally there are ad hoc fast pace(18+ mph) rides organised for a Saturday, depending on the rider's present.


See the weekly WhatsApp communications for details.

Sunday Rides

0900 start

35-45 miles, slow to medium pace (13-15mph)


The Sunday rides can sometimes comprise of a mid-ride coffee stop, or a coffee stop at the end of the ride.

Occasionally there is a faster group on a Sunday, depending on the rider's present.

See the weekly WhatsApp communications for details.

Midweek Evening Rides

Following the success and positive feedback of the Thursday evening rides, the club would like to include the addition of a Tuesday evening to the Spring/Summer schedule.

 

These rides will take place during the Spring/Summer months on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, typically starting at 6pm, although this will be earlier when the evenings are shorter.

They are usually 25-30 miles distance and, by splitting into sub groups, will cover a variety of pace from 13 - 18+ mph depending on which riders are present. These rides are a great way for new members to introduce themselves into the club.


Start times will be published weekly on WhatsApp.

Longer Rides

During the Spring/Summer months there will be a longer ride once a month, with a mid-ride café stop(s). These will typically be the 1st weekend of the month, either on a Saturday or Sunday and in lieu of the Medium distance Saturday ride. The distance will vary between 60-100 miles and could consist of a flat ride down to the coast one month, followed by a hilly challenge to the Ashdown Forest the next. Sub groups will be formed in order to manage different pace abilities.


All details of these rides will be shared via the WhatsApp group.

KHWCC ROUTE LIBRARY


The club route library can be found on Ride with GPS (RWGPS) using the links below depending on the desired distance. To add any new routes to the library please contact the Club Rides Manager.


 It should be possible to view and download these routes onto a GPS device using the free 'Starter' version of RWGPS.
