Chair of the Committee is Jane who joined KVG in 2011 after deciding to have a go at the Hever Castle triathlon. She normally leads the Wed int-adv ride and loves cycling in Yorkshire and Scotland as well as Kent.
Vice-Chair Ruth joined KVG in 2013 as novice road cyclist. A warm welcome and supportive start with the easy rides led to more of the club rides becoming achievable. Challenges like Chase the Sun, ClubdesCingles went from ideas to dream of, to goals to train for, to happy memories.
Treasurer Candy joined KVG in 2015 and many club rides later, finds herself fitter, loving the company of like-minded women. Working part-time allows mid-week as well as weekend club rides, leading any level as and when required. Many happy memories have been gathered along the way, including cycling across the Pyrenees in 2018 with a group of KVG friends.
Events & Social Secretary Helene joined KVG in 2013 in search of that weekend fix of outside activity away from the desk. Now a confirmed enthusiast, Helene organises the Saturday advanced rides and benefits from all aspects of KVG life, including club outdoor and Zwift rides, training, challenges, trips at home and abroad, and above all the camaraderie, chat and after ride coffees.
Membership Secretary Hatty joined KVG 2011 to improve her health and fitness and has since completed many challenges which would have been unthinkable before joining the club. She organises the Saturday Easy & Easy/Int rotas and regularly leads club rides & induction sessions for prospective new members.
Club Secretary Sue O joined the KVG in 2014 after enjoying the KVG Breeze rides and cycling has now completely changed her life. She joins and organises many club challenges. The latest adventure is managing the KVGpink Zwift racing team. She also leads the Sunday mixed rides with the KVB.
Suzie joined KVG in 2018 after accidentally cycling from London to Paris in 24 hours on the back on a tandem. Determined to do the journey again on a regular bike, she joined KVG to improve her cycling skills and has never looked back. She is currently training to be a cycling instructor in the hope of encouraging more women to cycle.
Bee Gregorie retains a position as Club President after stepping down from the Committee in 2020. Bee is proud of what she has achieved since founding Kent Velo Girls in 2008. It started as desire to find some women to ride with. Then there were hardly any, now there are loads!
