The primary objective of the club is to enter teams into local road races. In our first season we have entered most of the races held by SERRL and League of Veteran Racing Cyclists. We expect the numbers of the riders entering road races to increase vastly and hope that in future we will be entering races further afield and in greater numbers.
The first season has been hugely successful, not only in results but also for introducing a number of riders to racing. We have made mistakes and learned from them, next year we will be back much stronger! Look what happened to Team Sky).
Road bicycle racing is a bicycle racing sport held on paved roads. The term “road racing” is usually applied to events where competing riders start simultaneously (unless riding a handicap event) with the winner being the first to the line at the end of the course (individualand team time trials are another form of cycle racing on roads)..
The club is a member of British Cycling and is affiliated to the South East Road Race League SERRL, Kent Cycling and the London X League.
