The Forty Plus Cycling Club is a very sociable cycle club with sixteen active sections in Bedfordshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Kent, East Northamptonshire, Surrey and Sussex.  Each section organises rides between one and three times a week - usually mid-week.  In some areas we also have Sunday meets.  More on us and our sections...

Sections vary in their pace and distance covered.  Membership is open to cyclists aged 18 and above and you can come out and try our rides a few times, before joining.    For information on joining contact one of the section secretaries, or the membership secretary.  More on joining...

Members receive our quarterly magazine, Signpost.
