About our club

A very progressive Go-Ride club, having renewed Club-mark status.

An emphasis on the youth section, which is flourishing at the moment, due in no small part to the sterling efforts of club coaches Arron Harris, Chris Bax, Sharn Harris, Ian Clayson and others.

Based at Betteshanger Country Park (formerly Fowlmead), where we have regular sessions for all.

The Youth Section meets on a Saturday morning, so contact Arron or Sharn for more information (note cancellation currently in force).

The main impetus in the winter for the past few seasons now has been the East Kent cyclo cross league (EKCX) promoted by Rob Kingsland in the name of the club. An extremely successful series of 5 races over the winter culminated in the event at Betteshanger Park in January 2020.

This has brought much credit on the club, but next year 2020-21 will be a challenge in organising and promoting a new series after the Covid-19 pandemic. Planning is underway ahead of any update by BC and the Government. All members are reminded of their obligations to marshal at least one event during the year so make it one of the EKCX series, please.

The popular Tuesday evening training sessions at the park should have resumed in April 2020, but were cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. From 7th July 2020, after an update in BC advice, bespoke structured club training sessions will take place at Betteshanger every Tuesday for up to 10 weeks (further details from Ian Ferrell). The usual format will apply subject to social distancing and all other current guidelines.

Check out our fantastic newly designed kit, supplied by LE COL. We are extremely proud of it and are in discussion with the company, now the factory in Italy has re-opened, to ensure we can re-instigate the Club-Shop so as to enable more members to purchase it.

You will remember Peter Merritt, who started with our academy. Well, having progressed through to Team Bottecchia and raced in Belgium for three years is back in the UK again and has been invited to attend.

Yours in sport.
