About Us

GS Avanti is a cycling club based in Orpington, South East London.

We are one of the friendliest and most welcoming cycling clubs in the South East, which is why we have a growing base of over 150 members from across London, Orpington, Bromley, Kent, Surrey and Sussex. We are a club for adults only; all members must be at least 18 years of age. If you are under 18 some local clubs that have junior sections are BigfootCC, Westerham Cycling Club, and Southborough and District Wheelers.

The main attraction of joining GS Avanti is that our club rides are led by experienced cyclists and head straight into the countryside to explore some of most beautiful cycling routes in the South East.

A friendly, vibrant and welcoming atmosphere means GS Avanti provides the best opportunity to explore the North Downs with other passionate cyclists. With four groups of varying speeds and distances to choose from, it is easy to find a ride that’s perfect for you.

We host a variety of cycling activities and events and our mission statement is to provide “fun and friendship” through cycling.

We are a road riding club for amateur enthusiasts who are committed to championing Diversity and Inclusivity within the club and the sport. We welcome everyone irrespective of cycling ability, experience, gender, sexuality, race, nationality, religion, and socio-economic circumstances. We will actively strive to ensure that the club membership is diverse and representative of our wider community, making the sport more accessible to all.
