Rides, routes and clubs
If you are keen to cycle with others in and around the borough, be it a social ride in Richmond Park, or a spin down into the Surrey Hills, the chances are there’s a led ride for you in this section.
Women on Wheels
Rides are organised on the last Sunday of every month (except December). Pass the word!
The ride is a great opportunity to gain confidence on your bike in a fun and sociable environment. Led by experienced Kingston Council cyclist instructors, the ride lasts for two to three hours and takes place in quieter routes at a leisurely pace. It includes a refreshment break.
Kingston rides meet at 10am next to the Falling Telephone Boxes outside Wilkinson's, west end of Old London Road.
Registration and pre-booking is required. Please register with Women on Wheels and then once you have registered you will be able to book a place on a ride.
You will require the following control skills:
• Set off • Cover brake levers and pedal efficiently using gears (if present) while looking up and ahead • Look around to identify and avoid hazards while pedalling • Turn left and right at different speeds • Look behind • slow down and stop
