Our monthly rides take place usually on the first or second weekend of each month and you can sign up for them below.  We aim to have three to four groups on each ride so there should be something to suit everyone.  We’ll publish details of each ride here and gpx files will be available via the Viva Velo CC page on Strava.

October Club Ride - Kent, Ide Hill & Brasted

For our October Viva Velo club ride we're heading South East to the Brasted/Ide Hill area of Kent. We'll have three routes for you to choose from: one longer at 90km and two shorter at 80km or 75km. All start at The Dynamo, Balham, where our route out through Crystal Palace will be quicker. We will head out of town through Crystal Palace, West Wickham and New Addington and into the rolling lanes of Kent.

For those doing the longer route a loop south taking in Crockham Hill, Four Elms and Toys Hill will add extra distance and elevation. The Ide Hill comunity cafe will be our coffee stop for groups 1&2, and The Rasberry Rooms in Brasted for groups 3&4. We will then head back towards London via Knockholt, Cudham and Downe.

Post ride refreshment will be back at the The Dynamo, Balham, so please come and join us for beer, food and a chat. This ride is likely to be very popular, so we’d ask you to please register below to join the ride asap. This will help us ensure we have enough ride leaders to provide you with an excellent day out in the saddle. When registering please note your group preference (Steady, Medium or Fast).
