We are one of the largest cycling clubs in Kent, with something for everyone. We organise and take part in almost every form of cycling, from racing to touring, cyclo-cross and mountain-biking, long distance riding and cycling in groups at a variety of levels. We have over 400 members who tell us that they value us for the wide variety of cycling levels, the sense of community, the great people they get to meet and cycle with, discounts with local cycle retailers and more. We even have our own racing team 'SFA Racing Team' separately sponsored by Abellio. We also actively campaign for cyclists rights in Kent.

TRY US OUT!
Cycling interest has grown hugely over the last 12 months, and we’d love more people to join the club. We’ve put together some ‘frequently asked questions’ to help you if you’re thinking of joining us. You are welcome to ride with us for a maximum of two times before deciding whether or not to join the club.
You can also come on one of our 'try it out' rides, on the last Sunday of each month, 10am, the Marden Library carpark, March to August. You do need a bike, a water bottle and a helmet - and enough money to buy a coffee - but no fancy kit required. We will have enough people there to cater for every level, from the absolute beginner to an experienced rider. Get in touch if you want to join us so we know how many people to expect (email firstname.lastname@example.org) and allow 3 hours.
You're also welcome to ‘just turn up’ and try a ride for free – so please get in touch with the ride leader of the group you’d like to try or contact our Director of Club Runs who can give you some advice. You’ll get plenty of encouragement and advice, as we are a friendly bunch! We do advise though that if you’re at all unsure, you first try a level just below the one you think you’re capable of doing, or join a 'try it out' ride first.
IN CASE OF EMERGENCY (ICE) DETAILS
In case of any accidents arising, please bring your “ICE DETAILS” - including your full name, your emergency contact’s name and their telephone number. This can be an “ICE CARD” or simply written on a piece of paper so that it can be given to the ride leader on the day - it will be returned to you on completion of the ride.
To ensure we look after under 18s properly we have special requirements for unaccompanied riders under 18. They will need to bring a fully completed 'Parent/Guardian Consent Form', which gives details of what support is required by parents on the day. This form will need to be given to the ride leader at the start of the ride, along with their ICE details, both of which will be returned on completion of the ride. Please note that, unfortunately, we can’t accept any rider under 12 years of age on one of our club rides.
