For anyone in the South East wanting to explore the Kent lanes, the Sydenham Wheelers Cycling Club reliability trial could be just the event.
This area of Kent is a wonderful part of the world to ride a bike and within easy reach of London.
Taking place this Sunday, January 24, the winter ride starts and finishes at Knockholt Village Hall. Knockholt, which lies just outside of Greater London but within the M25 is easily accessible by bike, car and train.

First riders will be set off at 09:00, and there is a minimum time of three and a half hours to discourage racing.
