As you would expect from a cycling club, our members love to ride together. We ride all year round – whether its sportives, reliability trials or just traditional group club rides, there are always other riders to meet up with.  

Club Rides

Even the more competive club members like going out for a social ride sometimes. Southborough have regular organised rides on Wednesdays and Sundays. There also other impromptu rides in the Summer evenings and on Saturdays. Often club members arrange amongst themselves to go out or post on Facebook. We are fortunate that we have a great deal of different terrain on our doorstep so there's always plenty to choose from. Occasionally we will ride out to watch another event such as a hill climb or road race.

Reliability Trials

Reliability Trials are a bit like sportives but without the luxuries of electronic timing, sign-posted routes, food stops and mechnical backup. During the winter Southbough riders participate in three local events.


There are plenty of local Sportives classics like the Hell of the AshdownCircuit of Kent, Kentish Killer, Castle Ride or the Wolfe of Westerham and many Southborough riders take part in these and events further afield like Chase The Sun and Ride London.

Online Cycling 

We have an active online cycling community taking part in online events, organising online club rides through Winter and getting together virtually for group indoor training.

TW Cafe Ride

A relaxed and social group ride open to members, friends and like minded cyclists, brought to you by SDW & Loop (cycleloop.co.uk). A great intro to group riding and an opportunity to learn more about both clubs and meet new friends.
