Bike Rides

Time: Fortnightly Tuesdays or Fridays
Rides for bikes & e-bikes varying between 10 and 20 miles.

The Cycling Group is organising rides for 2021. The first ride along the River Wandle was on 20 April 2021. Please contact the Convenor for details of future rides.

Mostly flat rides, minor roads, Superhighways, occasional bus lanes and a mix of local and distant destinations. Includes coffee/tea/comfort stops. Some trips may use train travel within the Freedom Pass network (when this is permitted). Group members are researching and testing out new routes taken from a selection of London's canal and river maps. Short introductory rides can be arranged as tasters.

The Group has steadily increased in size over the year with over twenty members, averaging around six to ten each ride. We have had many great times and friendships formed. New members are always welcome. To contact the Convenor please click on the blue bird logo.

The Cycling Group Report for 2019-2020
This is the sixth year for the Cycling Group and we continued to meet regularly during the latter part of 2019. In 2020 we had already completed two trips in January and February before everything changed in mid-March with the arrival of Covid-19 and lock-down was imposed.

Fortunately there are records of past outings of the group – short reports that I had written up of over two dozen trips from 2014 onwards, complete with photos taken along the way. These were presented as slide shows on Zoom, giving us the opportunity to "meet" and to “re-visit” places of interest along past routes.

The easing of restrictions at the end of May 2020 allowed groups of up to six to meet and we restarted rides. When further restrictions were introduced in November, pairs of riders arranged trips, subject to Covid restrictions. and explored new routes.

Over the next few weeks we will be adding reports and photos of some of rides the group have enjoyed over the past six years, so please visit the site again soon. For a report on one of the more distant trips click this link Runnymede
