To keep things simple, to help people purchasing their first road bike, and to help newbies to keep up on our group rides this is the KVG definition of a Road Bike.
1)Drop handlebars
2)Tyres that are smooth and under 28c wide.
3) Ability to fit a rear mudguard in GMT ( clip on is fine)
4) Suitable gearing. Minimum 50/34 or a triple 50/40/30 ( or thereabouts ) cassettes can be any ratio up to 32 tooth.
1) Cross bikes
2) Gravel Bikes
3) Touring bikes
*** Exceptions may be made and will be reviewed on a person by person basis ( please get in touch ) – but riders on the above bikes need to be prepared to ride down 1 or 2 groups in order to be able to keep up with riders on Road Bikes. If you are struggling to keep up on an easy ride on one of these bikes, you will be asked not to ride that bike any more.
We are not pro riders, nor are we trying to ride at 50kph. We are simply trying to keep our groups together, for rider safety, the confidence of our riders, and courtesy to other road users.
Well that was quite a day! Not only did the KVG have a full team at the London League Team Champs, so did the KVB & KVK ( 1 x kids, 1 x Dads and 1 rider as part of a composite team). KVG team placed 3rd in today’s race 2 racers podiumed in the overall standings. For several riders it was their first stab at cross and it was good to see them taking on the challenge in the true KVG style😀Bacon Butty’s and fizz were order of the day after the club ride last weekend - ‘‘twas very lovely!Winter miles summer smiles. There’s a growing whisper of summer goals being discussed on club rides atm. Sportive’s to do, challenges chewed over, mountains to climb, descents to descend, adventures to be travelled. And all the while winter training is being done.We are a cycling club for women. We run 15 different rides a week, varied to suit our members by speed and distance. We run training champs each year, home and away, skills sessions, socials, talks, particate in a wide range of events and join together for cycling adventures.
