Joining CLOG

We are a friendly hiking, cycling, walking and other outdoor activity club for people based in or near Greater London.

The club is run by its members for its members.  Most are over 35s (typically late 30s, 40s and 50s and 60s) but all ages (over 18) welcome.  As we are not a family group, we can't take children on our activities.

CLOG is strictly non-commercial.  Ready to join?

    Preliminary information on some easy cycle rides coming up in the next few months.  

    Martello Towers and 12th century Abbey Cycle Ride 23 miles 
    We cycle out of Great Bentley south to St Osyths where we stop to look at what remains of the great abbey of St Osyths, then further south to the coast at Seawick where we may stop for coffee.  We then follow Cycle Route 150 through Clacton and Frinton to Walton on the Naze where we pass 5 Martello Towers. When we get to Walton we will explore the Naze nature reserve and admire the fantastic views and the old sea mark tower.

    Crab and Winkle and Thanet coast cycle ride 24 miles  Woods, Cliffs, Sea and Sky
    We will be cycling from Canterbury to Margate via the Crab and Winkle and the coastal cycle path: Woods, Cliffs, Sea and Sky. Passing through charming seaside towns: Whitstable, Herne Bay, Birchington, Reculver and Margate. We will be stopping for morning tea, lunch and probably afternoon tea somewhere along the way

    Surrey/Sussex lost railway cycle ride Christ's Hospital to West Worthing 26 miles
    We will be cycling along part of the lost railway that once ran from Guildford to Shoreham. (aka the Downs link) through the middle of the South Downs National Park!.  From Shoreham we will continue along the coast to finish at West Worthing.  This ride should be suitable for hybrids or similar.
