The Kingston Phoenix Road Club is a small cycling club based in the Kingston/Epsom/Sutton area of South London and Surrey, but with members who live all over the place, specifically from Kingston, Ewell, Epsom, Worcester Park, Cheam and Sutton.
We were formed in 1936 to allow members of the local cycle touring section to race with their friends rather than leave to join one of the many existing cycle racing clubs.
Our main cycling sport is Time Trialling. Some members take part in Triathlons, Road Racing and Cyclo Cross. Overall our emphasis is on enjoying the sport rather than winning.
But the club isn't only about racing these days, we try to be a sociable bunch and have a Saturday ride that meets at Horton Country Park, Epsom, for a sociable morning ride - this generally splits into three groups: fast, slow and off-road. There is also a Sunday ride that aims to do around 50 miles and be home by late lunchtime. See the news page for more details.
We promote a number of racing events and also have an annual Club Dinner and dance; as well as BBQs and other social events.
New members are always welcome. If you are interested in joining please refer to our contacts page.
Club Night is every fortnight on a Thursday. It is held on the first Thursday of the month at Horton Park Golf Club, West Ewell from about 8:45pm until 10pm. There is a bar, and hopefully lots of convivial chat. The third Thursday we are based at the Worcester Park Athletics Club in Green Lane.
We also organise a number of social get-togethers, such as barbeques, which to which all members are invited - further details appear on the blog from time to time. These are generally held at the homes of members and the addresses are on the address list circulated to members, if you need details of the address of any of these events, please email the secretary or phone the householder if a number is listed on the blog entry.
