What sort of riding does BRC offer?

Our members come in a range of abilities, shapes and ages. 

Some of us are pretty fast, some rather slow.

Some spend silly amounts on bikes and clothing and some don't.

Some look good in lycra, the rest don't care.

Some ride 200 miles a week and some 20.

Regardless of which of these a rider is, we do not leave them behind. It's in our rules.


We hold a wide variety of rides - weekday evenings, weekends, annual events and charity rides. Most rides are at least 20-25 miles and speeds range from an average 12-13 mph to over 17 mph. 

Our location means we have quick access to the lovely country lanes and hills around Downe, Biggin Hill and out into Kent (and even more hills!).
