  • Cycling


    This group meets weekly on a published timetable. It is open to members of any U3A.  We are covered by the U3A insurance for third party liability.

    We usually cycle between 20 and 30 miles at an average speed of 8 to 10 mph and often stop for a pub or picnic lunch. We try to stick to minor country roads and cycle tracks. We are often in the Sevenoaks and surrounding area but from time to time we are more ambitious and drive or take the train further afield. We also organise cycling holidays both in  the UK and abroad. Each member of the group is expected to take their turn planning and leading rides. There are very few rules and we like to keep our cycling relaxed and informal.

Charges are an initial annual joining fee of 11 and then a table charge of 3.40 per hour. We play snooker in pairs, threesomes and foursomes, depending on table availability. The standard is somewhat lower than the World Championship right now but most members still have high hopes of making a 100 break! Or even a 30 break. Well,  we can but dream and keep trying.
