Cycling

CPT host a weekly road bike session at Herne Hill Velodrome each Tuesday

All abilities welcome!
Sessions will be led by Jon and Harry Horsman & based on the BTF principles of the 4E’s

Expose – embracing a new skill

Explore – curiously exploring the skill

Enhance – refining effective & efficient technique

Excel – consistent performance in challenging situations

Sessions will involve the following:

  • Safety & track etiquette
  • Endurance, speed endurance & sprint training
  • Group riding
  • Principles of drafting
  • Cornering & bike skills courses (when applicable)

Sessions for Junior members run from 18:00 – 19:30 with Adult member sessions running from 19.30 – 21:00.

Sessions are included as part of the annual membership fee, or £8 for Pay As You Go members. 

Sunday Club Ride

We also hold a weekly adult Sunday club ride into the roads around Kent. We meet at Elmers End Roundabout at 8.30 (summer) or 09:00 (winter) (check myclubhouse/whatsapp groups for details). There are normally three different speed groups for the rides and we are typically out on the road for 2-3 hours often with a cafe stop at Cadence Crystal Palace to finish.
