SATURDAY PARK RIDE
Our most popular ride, held in Richmond Park in one form or another for more than 20 years. Groups ride four anticlockwise laps of the park’s road circuit (approximately 26 miles in total) in through-and-off formation. It’s a great way to learn or hone your group riding skills.
All you need is a well-maintained road bike (no mountain bikes, folding bikes or TT bikes please). Newcomers’ rides, which are three laps (approximately 20 miles), take place throughout the year and are by invitation only.
Because of the Covid-19 regulations members must currently pre-book in their groups on a Google Sheet via the club Forum.
Park Rides start 5 minutes apart from 7:30am onwards. Meet at Pen Ponds Car Park just before your time slot.
If you are under 18, please email email@example.com
Surrey Hills and Windsor rides
Cyclists need a regular long endurance ride to improve fitness. This is ours. Once you are comfortable with the Parkride (see above), choose a hilly ride to Surrey or a flatter trip to Windsor. Distance is usually 50 to 60 miles.
Because of covid 19 regulations, these Sunday rides will now be advertised on the forum with details of the meeting time, place and planned route. Members must sign up beforehand as there are a maximum of 6 places per ride.
We run fast and steady groups. Please note that faster groups, which average 17mph or higher in the Surrey Hills, may not stop for dropped riders. Bring a pump, inner tubes, drink and food.
WNR - WEDNESDAY NIGHT RIDE
Richmond Park laps when daylight permits. Chertsey loop during darker months.
A midweek hard workout for experienced riders and racers. More than one group if numbers allow. Broom waggon when possible. Approximately 28 miles. Bring lights.
Follow club forum thread for updates.
DRILLS AND COACHING
Because of the Covid-19 regulations members must pre-book places in their groups via the club Forum.
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 7pm, May to September. Meeting point always in or around Richmond Park, but exact location varies weekly.
A professional coach holds targeted training sessions in Richmond Park for racers and non-racers, fast or steady riders alike. An excellent way to reap big fitness gains – and the sessions are totally free to our members.
For those lucky few who don’t need to be at work... or prefer not to. The destination can vary but is usually Surrey Hills on a Tuesday and Windsor on a Thursday. Pace is steady, though faster riders can be accommodated in split groups, and the rides include a cake stop. Distances are approximately 50 miles.
Tuesdays and Thursdays, 9:30am. Meet at Dish Cafe opposite Hampton Court Station.
With the aim of becoming better riders, our female members usually ride alongside men on the rides listed above. We do, however, occasionally organise women-only groups which are announced on our website and via social media.
