About our club
115 Years of Catford Cycling Club"
On April 12th 1886 C.P.Sisley and a small band of teenage enthusiasts formed the Catford Cycling Club - by 1897 it was probably the foremost track racing club in Britain with branches in Paris, Bristol, Cardiff and Nottingham; a membership of 434 and receipts of £1650 (now probably £250,000); a Limited Company owning a banked cement track in Sportsbank Street Catford said to be the fastest in Europe.
Come cycling in Kent, Sussex and Surrey with Catford Cycling Club
We are a friendly and long established cycling club based in South London between Croydon, Surrey and Bromley, Kent. Find out more here
Come and ride with us. A good way to get to know the club is to come out on one of our weekend bike rides typically through the lanes of Kent and Surrey. We actively encourage new riders and those returning to cycling who would like to ride with an organised group where the emphasis is on friendship.
On Saturdays we have our 'Social' ride for riders of all abilities. To give you some expectations the average speed on a Saturday is around 12-14 mph and always includes a cafe stop for refreshments, butties and banter with a ride distance of around 25-30 miles. On Sundays we go a little further (50 - 60 miles) and a touch faster, expect an average between 15-16mph, but nobody gets left behind
Even if you have not ridden in a while or want to start Catford will help you get going a great way to keep fit in body and mind and meet like mined people and can even save you money on petrol and fairs!
