The mixed-purpose cycle and footpaths running through the village encourage everyone of any age to get on their bikes. Within the business park, roadside cycle routes connect with one on the A228 bypass and lead to Kings Hill station.
Cycling is also an ideal way to explore the local countryside and it is easy to find quiet lanes away from the main roads to take you past hop bines (the climbing stem of the hop) and apple orchards, providing a vivid reminder of why Kent is known as the garden of England.
Kings Hill Wheelers Cycling Club
The club meets every Wednesday and Friday at 9.15am at Waitrose car park and is planning to have regular Saturday and Sunday rides during the spring and summer to enable those who work during the week to join in.
The club, which has members of varying age and ability, organises rides through the Kent countryside of varying length – from 30 to 50 miles – and always finishes at Costa Coffee.
