Kent Velo Girls (KVG) started life in 2008 with a small group of female cyclists on a trail. Over the past 11 years, we have grown in numbers, ability and confidence too!

Our philosophy is “motivation gets you started and habit keeps you going”.  KVG is here to help you every step of the way.  We have an induction process that helps you to choose the right level of ride for your first sessions with the club and there are rides for a range of abilities from Easy to Advanced.

Our 200 members enjoy regular road rides. We have 15 club rides a week, spread over six days of the week, departing from Hildenborough.  Our easy rides (Mon, Wed, Sat) are the starting point and, although any bike is acceptable on the Monday Easy only, the vast majority of our riders are on road bikes (with drop handlebars and smooth tyres). We have found that riders on touring bikes and cross bikes have difficulty keeping up on our rides and so don’t encourage the use of those bikes on club rides.

I ride because...

“…I am addicted to the endorphins and to the adrenaline. I ride because the second my legs start turning circles I become a happier person. I ride because I love to feel the wind on my face and listen to the birds and bugs. I ride because it allows me to take out my aggression and anger. I ride because it stabilizes my life and creates balance. I ride because going downhill at 40mph makes me feel wild and free. I ride because I can’t cry and pedal at the same time. I ride because it allows me to play with the boys. I ride because I can go alone. I ride because even though I have ridden the route a 1000 times, I never know what is around the next bend.”

Lots of ladies doing this for the first time this year, all had a fabulous ride and are still smiling like this!This morning.

That’s what we do, six days a week.Always anticipated with much excitement is the trip to Folkestone, long ride there - in the sunshine- lunch by the sea, a sneaky glass of rosé, and the train home!Finishing the 106k distance in the Maratona at the weekend this KVG was thanking all the club members who gave support and encouragement during her rather shortened training (injury) in the lead up to the event. Well done!
