This group is for riders who want a purposeful ride at a steady pace averaging between 14-16mph over the whole distance. Generally, rides will be between 50 and 60 miles and include a coffee stop. Having said that it is not uncommon to go on a longer jaunt in the Summer but cut down the miles just a little in the Winter if the weather is a tad bad. We operate a "no-drop" policy, but aim to ride with as few other stops along the way as possible.

We consider ourselves a friendly supportive bunch and readily welcome new members to our ranks.  

The group will serve as a useful stepping stone for riders who want to progress from the Inbetweeners up to the faster groups. 

Generally the group will start out from the new Marden Sports Ground on the Maidstone Road at 0915hrs each Saturday but the starting point may change, dependent on what the ride leader has got planned. Whenever possible, downloadable routes, constructed using the club's RideGPS account, will be posted on the group forum.  Please check the ride calendar for week by week ride information.  

The main expectations of group members are as follows;

  1. All regular group members take their turn to act as ride leader.
  2. When riding with the group all members endeavour to take a turn at the front.
  3. Where possible members of a ride group will have the ride route downloaded onto any GPS unit they might have.
  4. All group members (other than potential new SFA members who are riding with us on a trial basis) endeavour to wear the club jersey at least during the warmer months April to September.
  5. Communication regarding rides is posted on the group forum, ideally 2/3 days before.

If you fancy joining us for a ride just get in touch with me (Del Leslie) or Paul Brown. Our numbers are below.

Have a look at our short Ride Reports and Blogs on this page where you can get a bit more of an idea of what we are about.
